Wimbledon As the gates opened at 0900GMT, the buzz around Wimbledon was palpable. It was a sunny morning in

south-west London and the gates were open. But, despite everything returning to Wimbledon, things aren’t back to

normal. Roger Federer is the first to be absent since 1998's junior competition. He has won an unprecedented

eight singles wins for men. Serena Williams, on the other hand will be returning to Wimbledon for her first Grand Slam

in one year after a long break. As a result of the ban on Russian and Belarusian players competing, this grass

court event won't carry any tennis ranking points. Cameron Norrie, the British No1 seed at the Grand Slam, had just

stormed to his first set against Pablo Andujar after he had eaten a large bagel. After a sunny start that saw fans

apply suncream, heavy grey clouds fell on Wimbledon as the skies opened. As the covers were pulled out to dry the

courts, there was a lot of pimm's and brollies being poured. However, "The Queue", the outside gathering of ardent

supporters received a thorough soak. It has been clarified that play will not take place after 1 pm.
