Wimbledon set to drop 'Miss' and 'Mrs' on female honours boards

As well as no ranking points for this year's Wimbledon as of time of writing, it will not be the only change at the All England Lawn and Tennis Club.

As part of their continued drive for equality, they will drop 'Miss' and 'Mrs' on their female honours boards, according to reports including from The Telegraph.

Sally Bolton who is the first chief executive of the club since forming in 1868 has overseen changes including having the same towels for both sides of the draws, 50/50 splits on the show courts and now instead of for example Miss A Barty like last year, it will read like the men's which was N Djokovic.

However despite that, the tournament will still call itself Gentleman's and Ladies draws as the modernisations are balanced as opposed to sweeping changes being implemented.
