Lendl declares Murray will defend his title

The Big 4 of Federer (7), Nadal (2), Djokovic (3) and Murray (2) have won a combined 14 Wimbledon championships.

"It's that simple. It's the same for Novak and the same for Rafa".

Last year, Andy and Jamie became the first brothers to top the world rankings in singles and doubles at the same time.

The Scot was visibly struggling and was pictured crouched down in discomfort and leaning on the net at the All England Club on Friday.

Meanwhile, Federer and Novak Djokovic are seeded to meet in the semi-finals in the other half. Everybody has their own little story right now. The good news is Bublik has won four ITF titles since April of past year and has displayed an effective serve during those victories. He can play himself into shape hopefully for week two.

"After that, last year I couldn't play (and) 2015 was not my year, of course".

The 35-year-old, who crashed out of the Stuttgart Open in the very first round, was in impeccable form in Halle as he did not lose even a set in the entire tournament. If he gets by Muller, I think Marin Cilic stops him in the quarters.

Having said that, it could really pay off to place your bets with bet365, not only due to competitive prices on a plethora of pre-match and in-play markets, but also due to their 50% Tennis Accumulator Bonus.

Pelosi tries to reassure Dems after Georgia loss
And Republican Ralph Norman defeated Democrat Archie Parnell on Tuesday in SC for the House seat vacated by White House budget director Mick Mulvaney.

On the gentlemen's side, seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer is seeded third for the second year in a row, yet he is listed as +200 chalk (bet $100 to win $200) to take home the title for the eighth time at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.

Murray, however, often owns a deceptively tired demeanour on court and after his first block of training in the morning, split over two hours, he indicated some optimism about playing his opening match on Monday.

"I was so down", he said. "My mind is just day by day here, like past year". But I had my chances, too. "I am playing well since the beginning of the season, so let's see".

In women's singles betting action at Wimbledon, Petra Kvitova leads the way at +500, ahead of Karolina Pliskova at +550, and Garbine Muguruza at +900.

The Czech, 27, suffered lacerations to her playing hand and it was feared she might never play again.

As for Djokovic, an opener against Slovakian lefty Klizan, who has tested many a top player in early rounds at the Slams in the past, is far from the easiest way to start a Slam.

"I find out what's important and what is not". Bublik has split his last six matches on grass court. "I will still be happy to play".
