You would think.....

According to the BBC and our newspapers, that there are no British tennis players left in Wimbledon. Nothing could be further from the truth. In doubles we still have: Jamie Murray, Dom Inglot and Joe Salisbury. In mixed doubles we have Jamie, Heather Watson, Harriet Dart and Jay Clarke, who are playing some absolutely brilliant tennis by the way.

Wheelchair events has Alfie Hewitt (Norfolk), Gordon Reid and Lucy Shuker.

Are these players considered lesser people, simply because they are not singles players?

  1. I always used to feel for Virginia Wade when male commentators would opine that Tim or Andy might be the first person to win Wimbledon for the Brits since Fred Perry. They don't do it anymore thankfully but we've obviously still got some way to go.
