Wim­ble­don: Ladies’ Fi­nal

TV Times - - Saturday Highlights -

Seven-time cham­pion Ser­ena Wil­liams’s ab­sence has cer­tainly thrown the women’s draw wide open and we’ve en­joyed some thrilling matches over the past fort­night. At the time of go­ing to press it’s still im­pos­si­ble to pre­dict who’ll lift the tro­phy on Cen­tre Court this af­ter­noon – but after the shock exit of book­ies’ favourite Karolina Plíšková, Ro­ma­nia’s Si­mona Halep and Bri­tain’s Jo­hanna Konta are both in the run­ning. Forty years since Vir­ginia Wade won Wim­ble­don, could we be look­ing at an­other home­grown cham­pion?

Si­mona Halep

and (in­set) Jo­hanna Konta
