Wimbledon is the biggest tennis tournament in the UK and one of the biggest in the world.
Coverage starts from 11:30 am on Monday, 3rd July 2017.
Unsurprisingly 2016 winner Andy Murray has been top seeded this year with Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal taking the following 3 seed positions.
This means the big four won’t meet until at least the semi-finals so if they all progress you can guarantee it’ll make for an exciting few days of the tournament.
Angelique Kerber of Germany takes the top seed in the women’s tournament with Simona Halep of Romania second, Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic third and Elina Svitolina of the Ukraine forth.
Last year’s ladies winner Serena Williams is absent due to being pregnant which gives the four seeded women a chance at taking their first women’s title.
