Anyone for tennis? Yes it’s that time of year again, so dust off your all whites, grab your racquet and let’s get on court!

Top LTA Senior Performance coach Liz Thomas, based at Ribble Valley Tennis Centre, gives her views over the Wimbledon fortnight.

‘’Its my favourite time of the year - its when I had my best results as a professional player and competing in Wimbledon qualifying events in singles and doubles remains a major highlight of my career.

My predictions for Wimbledon- for the women - American Madison Keys. I was fortunate enough to watch her at the WTA Birmingham. As for the men it’s hard to look beyond Djokovic but you can’t overlook Murray’s desire on home turf.’’
