Wimbledon Tennis Championships are the oldest and one of the most important tennis competitions in the world, attracting competitors from the highest level. 1997 marks the 111th time the event has taken place.

In the tennis world today, there are four major competitions known collectively as the World Grand Slam Series. Wimbledon is the third in this series.

Wimbledon 1998

22nd June - 5th July

History of the Event

The game of tennis was developed by a British army officer, Major Walter Clopton Wingfield, in 1873. His game of lawn tennis was similar to the earlier English game of court tennis except it was played outside 'on the lawn'.

The first world amateur championship was held in 1877 at Wimbledon, the All-England Lawn Tennis Club. Twenty-two competitors entered the Men's Singles, which was won by Spencer Gore. In 1884, thirteen women entered the championships for the first time and Maude Watson became the first ladies' Champion.

As the popularity of the championships grew, it attracted overseas players as well as the top players from Great Britain. May Sutton of the United States was the first overseas Champion in 1905, winning the Ladies' Singles title. Norman Brookes of Australia became the first Men's Singles champion from overseas in 1907. The championships changed their status from amateur to 'open' in 1968, and today, most of the competitors are professional players.

The International Tennis Federation (ITF), founded in 1912, is the governing body for all tennis tournaments played throughout the world.

About the Championships

The Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships are held every year. All players entering the tournament must be officially registered and must be of a recognised standard.

The championships are played on one of the 18 grass courts. The most famous of these is Centre Court, where many important matches including all the finals are played. Other courts include No.1 Court, the second most important court, Court 2, the largest outside court with two stands, Courts 3, 13 and 14, outside courts with a single stand, and Courts 4 to 12, 15, 16 and 17, outside courts with small seating areas.

All the top players, men and women, are seeded according to their official world rankings and their current levels of performance within their own competitions. This means that the player (or players in doubles matches) classed as the best at the tournament is seeded number 1. Seeded players are divided into two equal groups and placed in each half of the draw, so that the players seeded 1 and 2 will only meet in the final, if they win all their games.

A certain number of unseeded players also compete and they are placed in each half of the draw with the seeded players. The draw for who plays whom is made just before the tournament starts. Since full seeding began in 1927, only one unseeded player has won the title. This was Boris Becker in 1985.

Individual Competitions

The Championships are a series of individual competitions each leading to a championship title. There are Men's Singles and Ladies Singles for individual players, and Men's Doubles, Ladies' Doubles and Mixed Doubles for pairs. In mixed doubles, each pair consists of one man and one woman.

Every match is made up of games and sets. The first player or pair to win six (or seven) games takes the set, providing that the opposition has won no more than four (or five) games. If a player does not have a two game lead in a set, and the set stands at 6-6, then a tiebreaker is played to decide who takes the set. Tiebreakers are scored in points up to seven, but play continues until someone has a two-point lead. When you see a score of 7-6 followed by another score in brackets, a tiebreaker has been played.

In all ladies' matches, including mixed doubles, competitors play the best of three sets. In all men's matches, they play the best of five sets.

Wimbledon 2015, day one: as it happened All of the news, scores and gossip from Wimbledon as the 2015 tournament gets under way with men's defending champion Novak Djokovic and women's top seed Serena Williams in action

• Lleyton Hewitt beaten 11-9 in the fifth by Jarko Nieminen

Caroline Garcia holds to 30 and wins the first set against Heather Watson. Unfortunately that's where our rolling overage for today ends but we will have full details of what happens to Heather Watson on the site soon after her match ends. Thanks for joining us. Tom, Charlie and Vicki Hodges will be back tomorrow. Good night.

Heather Watson has been broken again in the first set by Caroline Garcia who serves for the set at 5-1.

Safarova takes her second match point to complete her comeback against the bold Alison Riske 3-6, 7-5, 6-3.

No6 seed Lucie Safarova from a set and break down, breaks Alison Riske in the eighth game of the third set and serves for the match.

No 11 seed Grigor Dimitrov is through, defeating Federico Delbonis 6-3, 6-0, 6-4.

Heather Watson has been broken in her first service game by Caroline Garcia who leads 2-0. Naomi Broady who won in the first round here last year has been knocked out by Mariana Duque-Marino 7-6, 6-3 but she put up an impressive fight.

Safarova has broken back in the third set which is level at 2-2.

Pablo Cuevas, the No28 seed, is out of the Championships, departing with his cheque for £29,000 when dispatched by Denis Kudla from two sets down. The AMerican wins 6-7, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2.

Alison Riske begins the third set against Lucie Safarova with a break. Heather Watson's match against Caroline Garcia, the No32 seed, was due to follow Safarova v Riske but has now been switched to Court 12.

Grigor Dimitrov has baked Federico Delbonis a Brick Lane beigel in the second set to take a two-set lead.

Denis Kudla has pegged the No28 seed Pablo Cueva back to two sets apiece from two-love down and the American is a break up in the fifth. And Safarova has won the second set. Back in charge.

Safarova has broken back. The second set is now 5-5. Mariana Duque-Marino has taken the first set in her match against Naomi Broady in the tiebreak (7-5). Naomi's brother Liam will be all over the papers tomorrow. Will Naomi join him?

Riske is serving for the match on Court No2, 5-4 up in the second set against Lucie Safarova.

Alison Riske is a break up and a set up in her match against the sixth seed Lucie Safarova who would represent day one's biggest scalp. She leads 5-3 with Safarova to serve to stay in the match.

On No1 Court Grigor Dimitrov, now who did he defeat last year? . has won the first set 6-3 against Federico Delbonis.

Wawrinka is through to the second round. And is no longer in the nip.

Our man Luke Brown is at the Championships and has been pottering about as well as filing reports.

Pftttt, 'The Queue' is for amateurs and people who are bitter that they missed out on Glastonbury tickets. It has often been said that true Wimbledon hipsters head for the competitions best known and most effective secret: the Ticket Resale.

Except that it isn't really a secret, as there are signposts directing you to it nailed up right across the venue. And the jury is out on the effectiveness of it too, as the queue begins at around 3pm with tickets not becoming readily available until 5.30, which means that a fair few people who join it too late are going to miss out. But that serves them right, of course. Everybody knows that Wimbledon is just as much about waiting patiently in line as it is that tennis business.

No4 seed Stan wawrinka is through with a straight-sets victory over Joao Sousa 6-2, 7-5, 7-6 (3)

Time for the breaker in the third set between Wawrinka and Sousa. And Stan starts with a mini-break.

John McEnroe on the Becker-Djokovic 'coaching' row

Boris has a book coming out and I understand he may be looking for some publicity. But you have to be careful what you say when your bread is being buttered.

Richard Gasquet is two sets and a break up in the third, playing Australia's Luke Saville. Kevin Anderson went 1-2 down to Lucas Pouille, having lost the third set 3-6, but the No14 seed is 4-1 up in the fourth.

Apparently there hasn't been a double bagel at the Championships since 2009 and now we've had two in a day. Alison Riske has won the first set 6-3 in her match against No6 seed Lucie Safarova.

How easy was Andrea Petkovic's 39-minute win over Shelby Rogers? She's staying out on Court 8 to hit some balls with her coach. #Wimbledon

Another double-bagel victory in the ladies goes to 14th seed Andrea Petkovic over Shelby Rogers, this one in 38 minutes. It's going with serve in the third set betweeen Wawrinka and Sousa, 2-3 so far.

So the French Open champion Stan Wawrinka has won the second set 7-5. While Venus Williams wraps up a 46-minute double bagel over Madison Brengle.

Stan has broken Sousa in the 11th game of the second set. He leads 6-5. Meanwhile over on No1 court kei Nishikori has closed out a fifth-set victory.

Nishikoro has raced to the seventh game of the fifth set to lead 5-2 while it's still going with serve in the second set of Wawrinka v Sousa. Kenny de Schepper has had an epic fightback victory on Court No9 to beat John-Patrick Smith 4-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-4, 6-4.

Good evening. Venus Williams is now 4-love up in the second set against Madison Brengle and is on course for the crushing double bagel. Bolelli has held his serve in the sixth game of the fifth set against Kei Nishikori and trails 2-4.

That's it from me today, thanks very much for joining. I'm handing over to Rob Bagchi.

Wawrinka v Sousa is on serve in the second set after the Swiss took the opener 6-2. Elsewhere Venus Williams has taken the first set 6-0 against Madison Brengle, as Kevin Anderson seals the second set 7-5 against Lucas Pouille, after being broken the first time he served for the set. The South African now leads two sets to love.

In the women's event qualifier Hsieh Su-Wei has beaten Kaia Kanepi 6-1, 6-4. Nishikori meanwhile, who is now 3-0 up in the fifth set, is having treatment on the calf injury that ended his Halle campaign.

Nishikori with an early break against Bolelli thanks to an extraordinary piece of defence as he chased down the Italian's smash. Venus Williams meanwhile is serving for a 6-0 first set against Madison Brengle.

The Australian John Millman has taken the first set 6-2 against Tommy Robredo, while big-serving Kevin Anderson just made a mess of serving for a two sets to love lead against Lucas Pouille.

Wawrinka looking good on centre court - he's taken the first set 6-2. Venus Williams is also looking in good nick, she's 2-0 against Madison Brengle on court three.

We're into a decider on court one - Bolelli takes the fourth set against fifth seed Nishikori, and an upset could be on the cards there.

That really was fantastic, a great effort from both players. Nieminen and Hewitt both showed incredible determination and indeed fitness for players aged 33 and 34 respectively, and in the end it's Hewitt who just came up short.

Oh no! Hewitt has lost! Nieminen breaks to win the match 11-9. Bye bye Hewitt - the 2002 winner waves goodbye to the Wimbledon crowd for the final time. What a player, he'll be missed.

Five-time winner Venus Williams is about to start her tournament against Madison Brengle on court three.

Possible story developing on court one where Kei Nishikori is down 4-1 in the fourth set against Simone Bolelli. Nish leads two sets to one so that could be heading for a decider.

Over on centre court, Stan Wawrinka has begun his match with Joao Sousa. The French Open champion has an early break and leads 3-1. Hewitt is once again serving to stay in the match against 9-10.

Hewitt clings on! He went 0-30 down but grits his teeth and comes through a moment of adversity yet again. These two, 34 and 33, have been going nearly four hours. The winner plays Novak Djokovic. Good luck with that.

Milos Raonic is through to the second round - he's beaten Daniel Gimeno-Traver of Spain 6-2 6-3 3-6 7-6. That's a shame.

As two veterans sllug it out on court two, another one has just cruised into the second round. Tommy Haas, 37, has beaten Dusan Lasovic in four sets - what a result that is. Haas made his grand slam debut 19 years ago.

And a couple of results to update you on - Belinda Bencic has beaten an injured Tsvetana Pironkova 3-6, 6-1, 6-3, while Bernard Tomic has finally come through his match against Jan-Lennard Struff 6-3, 3-6, 2-6, 6-2, 6-3. So good news for one Aussie there, can Hewitt make it even better?

Hewitt and Nieminen exchange service holds on and it's 8-7 to the Finn in the fifth set. Queen's finalist Kevin Anderson meanwhile has won the first set 6-2 against Lucas Pouille.

Nishikori is back in control on court one - he's won the third set 6-2 against Simone Bolelli to take a two sets to one lead there.

Oh, that is glorious! Hewitt with a Boris Becker-esque diving volley to move up to 40-0 on his serve, and take us to 6-6 in the final set. But it's bad news for Jo Konta on centre where she's been beaten 6-2, 6-2 by 2004 winner Maria Sharapova.

Hewitt holds on - unbelievable stuff! We're at 5-5 in the final set.

Oh dear, Hewitt is down two match points on his own serve, with the score in games at 4-5. He saves the first one, and then the second! A stunning volley keeps the Aussie alive. Nieminen does well to force a third chance, but Hewitt again stays strong. How is he doing this?! We're back at deuce.

Canada's Milos Raonic not having it all his own way - Daniel Gimeno-Traver has claimed the third set 6-3 on court 3.

Suffice it say Nieminen broke straight back against Hewitt to make it 4-4 in the fifth set. Meanwhile on court 18, Belinda Bencic levelled it up against Tsvetana Pironkova, racing through the second set 6-1, and is now 3-1 up in the decider.

Tommy Haas has been reeled in against Dusan Lajovic, with the Serb taking the third set 6-4. Bernard Tomic has just forceda decider against the superbly named Jan-Lennard Struff, taking the fourth set 6-2.

Hewitt breaks again. That's five service breaks in seven games this set, it's almost like watching myself play.

And here are the stats from Novak Djokovic's straight-sets win against Philipp Kohlschreiber.

Interesting development from court one where fifth seed Kei Nishikori has lost the second set 7-6 against Simone Bolelli to tie that match up. Hewitt has been broken straight back by Nieminen in a match that's more and more resembling two drunks staggering around having a bar fight.

The No 17 seed John Isner has eased past Go Saeda 7-6, 6-4, 6-4 on court 12. Meanwhile Hewitt is getting treatment for blisters during his match against Nieminen - remember the winner of this match plays Djokovic in the second round. I'm not sure either of these veterans will be able to stand up for that one.

Juan Monaco is two sets and a break up against Florian Mayer, as Hewitt breaks serve to lead 3-2 in the decider against Nieminen. Konta broke Sharapova at the start of the second set, but the Russian broke straight back, so it's 1-1 at the start of that one.

Sharapova has taken the first set against Konta 6-2, and Jan-Lennard Struff has just moved two sets to one up against 27th seed Bernard Tomic. Tomic was due to face Djokovic in the third round so Novak will be keeping an eye on that one. Actually thinking about it, he's probably really not bothered about who he plays.

Seventh seed Milos Raonic is two sets up against Daniel Gimeno-Traver, while Hewitt and Nieminen have exchanged early breaks at the start of the fifth set.

The always popular Bethany Mattek-Sands is through in the women's draw - she's got the better of Belgium's Alison Van Uytvanck 6-3, 6-2.

Sara Errani has won the battle of Italy against Francesca Schiavone 3-6, 6-3, 6-1. Shame Schiavone's out - I always liked her. On centre court, Konta is holding her own but trails 4-2 in the opening set.

It's Bagel time again - Nieminen has claimed the fourth set 6-0, and we are into a decider in that one. Jim White reports from court two:

The Aussie fanatics have gone very quiet as Lleyton Hewitt goes five games down in the fourth set against the veteran finn jarkko nieminen. In Oz they clearly only sing when they are winning.

As Hewitt receives a massage during a medical time out the Aussie fanatics conduct a sing song getting the court two crowd to sing their love for the player. In truth it's marginally better than cliff Richard.

The highly-fancied 18-year-old Belinda Bencic has lost the first set 6-3 to Tsvetana Pironkova, and Maria Sharapova leads Britain's Jo Konta 4-1 on centre court.

Hewitt and Nieminen are not the only golden oldies battling it out at Wimbledon - the evergreen 37-year-old is 6-2, 4-1 up against Dusan Lajovic. Meanwhile boredom's Milos Raonic is a set up against Daniel Gimeno-Traver, and fifth seed Kei Nishikori is 6-3, 2-2 ahead against Simone Bolelli.

Verdasco has finally come through against Klizan - the Spaniard win 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-7, 13-11 in 3hrs 56 mins. Hewitt meanwhile is down a break 3-0 in the fourth set.

Our man on Aussie watch Jim White has a full report on Nick Kyrgios's 'dirty scum' outburst during his win against Diego Schwartzman.

Nick Kyrgios, the young Australian firebrand who defeated Rafael Nadal at last year’s championship, turned the air of court two blue in his first round match here at Wimbledon. Disputing a line call during his comfortable three sets win over the Argentine Diego Schwatrzman he was heard to shout “dirty scum”. He later denied, however, that his angry riposte was directed at any of the officials.

“I knew you guys would ask me about it,” he said at his after match press conference. “You get caught up in the heat of the moment. I thought the call was wrong. I wasn’t referring to the ref, it was towards myself.”

Hmmm, is anyone convinced by that?!

Verdasco and Klizan are still slugging it out in the fifth set of their match - it's 12-11 to the Spaniard in the decider!

Game and third set Hewitt - he takes it 6-4 against Nieminen, and now leads by two sets to one. In the women's event Anna-Lena Friedsam beats Russia’s Vitalia Diatchenko 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, while Sara Errani and Francesca Schiavone are tied at one-set all on court 17.

So after that thrilling Broady win, court 18 has another treat on its hands, with the Eastbourne champion and 'new Martina Hingis', Belinda Bencic, up against former Wimbledon semi-finalist, Tsvetana Pironkova. Centre court meanwhile has the exciting Maria Sharapova v Britain's Johanna Konta match, which you can follow right here.

A few other scores to update you on. The exciting young Aussie Thanasi Kokkinakis was beaten in straight sets by Leonardo Mayer, while Fernando Verdasco and Martin Klizan are engaged in an epic encounter on court 14, where it’s 10-9 to the Spaniard in the fifth set.

The reigning champion Djokovic is through after beating Kohlschreiber 6-4, 6-4, 6-4. He'll face the winner of the Hewitt v Nieminen match, which is currently 4-3 to Hewitt with a break in the third set and one set apiece.

Ana Ivanovic has cruised through her first-round match against Yi-Fan Xu 6-1, 6-1. Novak Djokovic had a break in the third set against Philipp Kohlschreiber, but it's now level at 4-4.

Wow, what a scoreline in the women's event. The ninth seed Carla Suarez Navarro has been defeated 6-2, 6-0 by the 18-year-old Lithuanian Jelena Ostapenko.

Broady, the world No 181 has a match point! Matosevic going wide with a volley. Can he do it? No. He misses with a backhand, and an ace out wide gives the Aussie advantage. But Broady gets himself another opportunity, and this time he takes it! Matosevic errs again with a volley, and that's it! Hats off Liam Broady, phenomenal effort.

Well done @Liambroady big comeback win

Liam holds on to lead 5-3. He was two sets down, he was a break down in the decider, but here he is on the brink of upsetting the former world No 39.

Liam Broady gets himself a break point, and he takes it! He leads 4-3 in the final set against Matosevic, and is just two service holds away from a place in the second round. Huge effort from the British wildcard.

Liam Broady holds on to make it 3-3 in the final set against Marinko Matosevic. Our man on court 18 Jonathan Liew has the latest.

All heating up a bit here on Court 18, where Liam Broady and Marinko Matosevic are royally duking it out in the final set. Matosevic looks completely spent, drenched in sweat and grimacing like one of those kidnapped cyclists in Belleville Rendezvous.

While he's sweating, Broady's swearing, and is on a court violation warning as a result, which has only made him angrier. "Guys who are top three in the world on Centre Court don't get it," he snaps back at the umpire, and you know, he's got a point.

Djokovic is 6-4, 6-4 up against Kohlschreiber, which you can follow here. Nieminen has won the second set against Hewitt 6-3, to tie that match up at one set all.

Serena Williams is through - she's won 6-4, 6-1 against a spirited Margarita Gasparyan. Next up on court one is Simone Bolelli v Kei Nishikori.

Oh, this is annoying. Broady is a break down 2-0 in the final set against Matosevic, but wait just a moment, he has a break point to get back into it, and he takes it! We're back on serve.

Serena Williams is 5-1 up in the second set, and will serve for the match. Kohlschreiber is serving to stay in the second set, down 5-4 against Djokovic.

Ana Ivanovic has grabbed the first set against Yi-Fan Xu 6-1, and Lleyton Hewitt is now a break down against Jarko Nieminen.

Broady now has a double break, and is serving for the first set at 5-2. And he's done it, he holds to make it 6-2, and two sets all!

Marcel Granollers has beaten Janko Tipsarevic in straight sets and Broady is 4-2 up in the fourth set against Matosevic. Hewitt meanwhile has taken the first set 6-3 against Nieminen.

In the all-Italian affair on Court 17, 19th seed Sara Errani leads 2010 French open winner Francesca Schiavone 4-1 in the opening set. Serena is 2-0 up in the second set against Gasparyan, and Djokovic is 3-2 up on serve in the second against Kohlschreiber.

And Lleyton Hewitt has a break against Jarko Nieminen - wouldn't it be great if the ol timer could get through that one and set up a showdown with Djokovic?

Our man on Hewitt-watch Jim White has this to say from SW19.

On court two watching Lleyton Hewitt are the self-styled Aussie ultras. A group of yellow and green clad supporters they have a whole song book of rehearsed chants and choreographed dance moves. They have kept the crowd hooting with laughter with a variety of re-lyriced disco numbers. Though remember this is the place where they still laugh when someone shouts cmon Tim in a Murray match. Hewitt himself has studiously ignored them thus far even when they broke into an update of 'that's the way - aha- I like it' when he broke serve.

In other Aussie news, Thanasi Kokkinakis is now two sets down against Leonardo Mayer, both on tie-breaks.

Ana Ivanovic has an early break against Yi-Fan Xu and leads 3-0, while Serena Williams has come through the first set 6-4 against Margarita Gasparyan. That was a really tough 45 minutes or so for the world no 1 and she looks mightily relieved to have come through it. Broady meanwhile has a break in the fourth set against Matosevic and leads that one 2-1. Could he be forcing that one into a decider?

Djokovic has just taken the first set 6-4 against Kohlschreiber. Serena Williams is really struggling against Gasparyan but she has held on to her serve and leads 5-4 in the first set.

And in other ill-discipline news, Serena Williams has received a code violation warning in her match against Margarita Gasparyan for an "audible obscenity". Elsewhere, John Isner has taken the first set against Go Soeda 7-6, while Dominic Thiem has come through against Dudi Sela 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

Well I said Kyrgios's post-match tweet was bland, but this is more like it. He reportedly said “dirty scum” during his win against Diego Schwartzman - it's not yet known who he was talking to or about. He speaks to the media at about 2.30pm so hopefully we'll know more then.

Game, and third set Broady! He's taken it 6-3, and trails by two sets to one. Game on against Matosevic.

Serena Williams has broken back against Margarita Gasparyan after an epic sixth game; they're now back on serve in that one at 3-3.

Djokovic staves off three break points to cling on against Kohlschreiber and lead 4-3 - a really good match so far on centre court. Broady is on the verge of taking a set against Matosevic, with the Brit leading 5-3 in the third set.

The first seed is out of this year's Wimbledon - No24 Flavia Pennetta, who has lost 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 to 34th-ranked Zarina Diyas. Diyas got to the fourth round last year so has decent pedigree. Marin Cilic though is safely though after beating Hiroki Moriya 6-3, 6-2, 7-6. Cilic got to the last eight last year where he took Djokovic to five sets, and he'll be hopeful of doing some damage again this year.

Broady still going well in the third set on court 18 - he leads Matosevic 4-1 after losing sets one and two. Elsewhere Kirsten Flipkens shows hugely impressive resolve to come back from being bagelled in the first set to beat Annika Beck 0-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Nick Kyrgios has been uncharacteristically bland in his post-match tweet after cruising through to the second round.

Thanks for the support. Round 2 next, lets go. #sw19 http://t.co/n7O0xJVS1a

Dominic Thiem has taken the third set against Dudi Sela to lead 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, 2-2, while Marin Cilic is in a third-set tie-break against Hiroki Moriya.

Serena Williams still a break down against Margarita Gasparyan - the Russian qualifier leads 3-1 in the first set on court one.

Some more results to bring you - he No11 seed in the women's draw, Karolina Pliskova, has beaten Irina Falconi 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, while David Goffin has comfortably beaten Horacio Zeballos 7-6, 6-1, 6-1. Meanwhile Fernando Verdasco has fought back well against Martin Klizan, and is now 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 up.

Djokovic went a break up against Kohlschreiber on centre court, but the German has just broken straight back - 2-1 in that one.

Liam Broady has recovered well from going two sets to love down - he's now a break up in the third set against Matosevic.

Ooh, I say. Serena Willams has been broken in the very first game of her match against Gasparyan. Is the upset to end all upsets on the cards? The American of course will hold all four majors if she wins at SW19, and can still do the calendar Grand Slam if she wins here and at the US Open.

Game, set and match Kyrgios - 6-0, 6-2, 7-6. He wins the tie-break 8-6, and is safely through to round two.

A couple of women's results to bring you - the wonderfully named Coco Vandeweghe has beaten Anna Karolina Schmiedlova 6-4, 6-2, and Timea Babos has got the better of Petra Cetkovska 7-6, 6-3.

Nick Kyrgios is in a third set tie break against Schwartzman, and he's just delivered a second serve ace at 127 mph. Wow. He leads 2-1 in that, but it's on serve.

Game and second set Matosevic - he leads 7-5, 6-4 against Britain's brave and plucky Liam Broady.

Kyrgios held on in that game against Schwartzman, and it's now 5-5 in the third set, with the 26th seed two sets up. And there's bad news for Britain's Broady - he's lost his serve and Matosevic is serving for the second set.

Thanasi Kokkinakis is a set down against Leonardo Mayer - that one went the way of the Argentine after a lengthy tie-break. Kokkinakis's compatriot Kyrgios is also in a spot of bother - he's 15-30 down serving to stay in the third set against Schwartzman.

Novak Djokovic will be out on court in about five minutes against Phillipp Kohlschreiber. You can follow all the action from that one here.

Dominic Thiem has levelled things up against Dudi Sela, winning the second set 6-3. Cilic is 2-0 up in the third set against Moriya, while Azarenka has beaten Kontaveit easily, 6-2, 6-1.

Marin Cilic is two sets up against Hiroki Moriya on Court 3, taking the second 6-2. Broady is tied at 3-3 with Matosevic in the second set on court 18, while Kyrgios is down 4-3 against Schwartzman in the third set of their match. The Aussie won the first two sets easily but is having a harder time in the third, and has been broken for the first time in the match.

Hats off to Kirsten Flipkens, who lost the first set 6-0 against Annika Beck, but has levelled things up with a 6-3 second set win. Meanwhile Leonardo Mayer and Thanasi Kokkinakis are playing a first set tie break on court 16.

Fernando Verdasco is having a battle with Martin Klizan out on court 14. The Spaniard lost the first set 6-4, but is 4-1 up in the second.

Meanwhile, excitement builds for the start of the show court matches at 1pm. Remember it's Djokovic v Kohlschreiber on centre, and Serena Williams v Gasparyan on court 1.

We have the first retirement of the tournament - Austria's Andreas Haider Maurer pulls out when 6-2 5-2 down to Lithuania's Ricardas Beranki on court six.

More missed break points for Broady, which has been the story of the match against Matosevic. The Brit can't make the most of a 15-40 lead and it's 1-1 in the second set.

The Aussie is serve-volleying pretty much every first serve, which is fun to watch, but not especially effective.

Women's 11th seed Karolína Pliskova is 6-4, 2-0 up against Irina Falconi, and Flipkens has a 4-1 lead in the second set after losing the first set 6-0 to Beck.

Kyrgios is two sets to love up against Schwartzman, taking the second 6-2.

Broady has lost the first set 7-5 against Matosevic. The brit had two break back points, but he couldn't take them, and that's a big blow for Stockport's finest.

Broady's sister Naomi is also in action at this year's Wimbledon, and here's a fascinating piece on the pair, including details on Liam's fractious relationship with his dad. The pair have not spoken in nearly three years, after faling out over Liam accepting funding from the LTA.

Cilic meanwhile is a set and break up on Japan's Moriya on court 3.

Women's 24th seed Flavia Pennetta has lost the first set 6-3 against Zarina Diyas, while Flipkens has recovered her composure a little bit and leads Beck 2-1 in the second set.

Elsewhere Dudi Sela has won the first set against Dominic Thiem 6-2, and Azarenka has taken the opener against Kontavei by the same score.

Ah, rats. Broady has been broken to love and Matosevic will serve for the first set at 6-5.

Marin Cilic also in good nick - he's won the first set againt Moriya 6-3. Janko Tipsarevic is down 4-2 to Marcel Granollers, and Kyrgios has just broken again against Schwartzman, and leads 2-1 in the second set.

Azarenka looking good now against Kontaveit, with the Belarussian 5-2 up in the first set. And Schwartzman is finally on the board against Kyrgios, that one's 1-1 in the second set.

Lovely moment just now when Sue Barker says of Broady's opponent Matosevic that "he's known as 'mad dog because, er, well he's a bit of a mad dog." Broady playing a lot better now, and leads 5-4 in the first set.

It's bagel central at Wimbledon - Flipkens has lost the first set against Beck 6-0. Upset on the cards there.

And an update from Luke Brown, who is soaking up the atmosphere at SW19.

After catching a District Line train which seemed to include every floral-print wearing pensioner in the country, and having battled through waves of budding entrepreneurs offering everything from free Peperami snacks, to a new flavour of Robinson’s fruit squash, to Salvation (the Peperami was my favourite); I have successfully arrived at Wimbledon 2015. Just getting in feels like something of an achievement.

Unsurprisingly, there’s already a fantastic atmosphere around the place, and Court 18 is packed as fans cheer on home grown Liam Broady in his first round match against Marinko Matosevic. In true British style, he was broken immediately. But the crowd are right behind him and he's got himself back into contention with the score currently at 3-3.

As for the stepped up security; there were a notable amount of police officers around the various entrances to the complex, including a number of officers on motorcycles pulled up on the pavement. Inside, I’ve only spotted a couple, although there are a number of burly G4S security guards doing the rounds. But in general, the atmosphere is far more The Great British Bake Off than it is The Bill.

Hello, we have a bagel! Kyrgios races throuhg the first set and crushes Schwartzman 6-0.

Better news now for Britain's Liam Broady, who has broken back and lead's Australia's Matosevic 3-2, back on serve.

Kyrgios is really running away with the first set against Schwartzman - the Aussie has broken three times and leads 5-0. He'll serve for a bagel first set next.

In the women's event, Azarenka and Kontaveit have exchanged early service breaks and are tied at 1-1. Belgium's Kirsten Flipkens meanwhile is struggling and down 4-0 against Annika Beck.

US Open champion Marin Cilic also has an early break - he leads Japan's Hiroki Moriya 3-0 on court 3.

McEnroe has backed Murray to win the men's title: Davenport goes for Federer.

Britain's Liam Broady has started less well - he's a break down against Matosevic on court 18 after a limp slice into the net.

Great start for Kyrgios out on court 2 - he's broken Schwartzman's serve in the very first game of the match.

The women's 23rd seed Victoria Azarenka also begins her Wimbledon today, and she's up first on court 12 against Estonia's Anett Kontaveit.

Meanwhile, the patter between Sue, Tim, Lindsay and Mac could not be more wholesome if it tried. They're currently have a bit of a natter about Andy's wedding. Terrific stuff.

Wimbledon 2015 is officially underway. Well kind of anyway - the players are out on the outside courts and are knocking up.

A reminder of the main matches that are first up on the outside courts, all 11.30 starts.

Court 2: Kyrgios v Schwartzman

Court 14: Klizan v Verdasco

Court 18: Broady v Matosevic

Sue Barker's intro has literally left me with goosebumps.

Which match are you most excited about today? Plenty to choose from but Hewitt v Nieminen probably edges it for me - that one's second on court two. Send any thoughts you have incidentally to charlie.eccleshare@telegraph.co.uk or @cdeccleshare .

Yes, hello and welcome from me to this day one of Wimbledon 2015. Arguably the two greatest weeks of the year are about to start, and in many ways these opening days are the best, when there's so much going on all over the place, rather than just the show courts. I can also give you a weather update: it's really, really hot.

Warming up for my Match against @DjokerNole @Wimbledon Sun is shining&im Looking fortward to play on CC #daylong pic.twitter.com/bbXyoprKTj

Right, that's enough from me. I'll hand over to Charlie Eccleshare, who will take you through the day's action.

Where have all the lefties gone? That's the question. Well, it's a question. And it's one Jonathan Liew has got his teeth into:

Rafael Nadal was born right-handed. He does everything, from signing autographs to playing golf to touching every part of his face before serving, with his right hand. But he plays tennis left-handed. And not even Nadal himself quite knows why.

There is an urban myth that it was his uncle Toni who forced him to play left-handed, but in fact it was Nadal himself who decided to make the switch. Early in his childhood, in order to generate enough power to propel the ball over the net, he started gripping the racket with both hands on both sides.

Toni merely pointed out that there were virtually no professional players who played double-handed on both sides, and told him to pick a favourite hand. For reasons unbeknown to himself, Nadal favoured his left.

Playing left-handed has offered Nadal all sorts of advantages, most notably by allowing his stronger right hand to power up his double-handed backhand, which for some years has been one of the most feared shots in the game. But the evidence suggests that the supremacy of the left-hander in men’s tennis may be receding.

Security of a far less terrifying kind is being provided by Rufus, below. He's a hawk, he loves tennis and frightening away smaller birds from the courts:

Concerning story from our news desk, who are reporting increased security measures in SW19 amid fears of a terrorist attack:

Security is being stepped up for the start of Wimbledon today amid heightened fears of a terror attack, as Britain's top tennis star Andy Murray carries the nation's hopes once again in his quest for another SW19 title.

Scotland Yard said changes had been made to policing plans for this year's tournament, with the UK's terror threat level at "severe", meaning an attack is "highly likely".

Extra officers will be on patrol - including some in plain clothes - and a "highly mobile" reserve unit is ready to respond to "emerging incidents", the force said.

It comes after at least 15 British holidaymakers were killed in the Tunisian beach massacre on Friday, with sources warning the death toll could double to at least 30, and as the UK prepares to mark the 10th anniversary of the July 7 bombings next week.

Here's the full story:

Security stepped up at Wimbledon amid fears of attack

Some words from the venerable Press Association on the most curious sort of Wimbledon queue-hugger, the type which is already at the front, but deliberately staying put until tomorrow:

The hardy and the gluttons for punishment were seeing their reward on Monday as thousands of fans in the Wimbledon queue poured through the gates of the All England Club.

But the most hardcore of tennis fans were going nowhere. For them, the wait to witness play at the 2015 Championships carried on.

Sisters Suzanne Pyefinch and Michele Jennings from Great Yarmouth joined the queue before dark fell on Saturday, and had no intention of moving until Tuesday morning, having earmarked Roger Federer's opener against Damir Dzumhur as the match they must not miss.

That meant queuing for over 60 hours. Should they also have the chance to see Andy Murray, who starts his campaign on Tuesday, that would be a bonus for the pair.

Outside their tent sat chairs in Union Flag and St George's flag designs, a camping stove and foldaway table. Inside was a suitable supply of strong drink.

They are planning on staying for the entire fortnight. "We arrived on Saturday night at about eight o'clock. It's an annual pilgrimage for us, my sister and I. We both love the tennis," said Mrs Pyefinch.

"We're going in on Tuesday. We're actually doing the whole two weeks. This is our hotel for the next two weeks and you're in my bedroom as we speak."

The hundreds of tents parked in neat lines in Wimbledon Park are packed away as dawn breaks each morning, as those in the queue for the day's play snake by the bunkers and greens of Wimbledon Park Golf Club before entering the All England Club, through a bridge over the road.

There is often a party atmosphere at night, with the Australian 'Fanatics' principal among the revellers.

But Mrs Pyefinch, who with her sister has been coming to Wimbledon for over 30 years, said: "It's not a festival, it's a queue. It's a lovely atmosphere. It's all very nice of course because it's Wimbledon.

"There are beautiful people from all four corners of the Earth that we see every year, and it's always like a reunion. You make friends in the queue.

"We used to queue on the pavement (a tradition that ended in 2008). It's much better now in the field. You miss the interaction with the people on the street who used to ask what we were queuing for, but it is brilliant being in this field together.

"This is our big two weeks together: no husband, no children, no nothing. They're at home. As long as we get home and the house is still standing it's a result."

As the sisters waited patiently for the chance to see seven-time champion Federer, those who had queued with them were preparing to watch live tennis.

With 500 tickets available daily until midway through the second week for each of the main show courts - Centre Court, Court One and Court Two - it was not strictly necessary to have arrived on Saturday, although Sunday evening arrivals likely missed the best seats.

Michael Slatcher, from Ash Vale in Surrey, was taking no chances.

"We got here at 10 o'clock on Saturday morning," he said. "We slept on the street on the first night before they opened the park.

"The atmosphere in the queue is just as good as the tennis. We all have drinks, we chat and we socialise, making friends.

"We're coming back next Saturday, to queue for Monday. I'm a glutton for punishment.

"Who's going to win? It's got to be Djokovic. If he has an off day then Murray can do it."

In this, the season of twee strawberries, chummy Sue Barker and deeply hilarious shouts of "come on Tim", it's worth remembering that grass court tennis frequently has a bit of an edge. Rob Bagchi has compiled his top 10 Wimbledon tantrums, and it's well worth your time and attention:

Wimbledon 2015: The top 10 tantrums in SW19

Good morning tennis fans! It's the day that you've all been waiting for, unless you prefer clay or polymeric EPDM rubber to grass.

Yes, it's Wimbledon 2015 and we shall be covering it here in exhaustive detail for the next couple of weeks. It's a reasonably exciting start to the fortnight, with both of the top seeds in action, as is traditional.

Novak Djokovic will begin on centre court at around 13.00 with a German banana skin lying in wait in the shape of Philipp Kohlschreiber.

At much the same time on Court One Serena Williams meets, shakes hands with then plays tennis against Margarita Gasparyan from everyone's favourite gigantic nation state, Russia.

There's plenty more. Maria Sharapova meets Brave British Johanna Konta on centre after Djokovic, then post-Federer favourite Stan Warwinka kicks off his tournament against Joao Sousa.

Tennis explosion Nick Kyrgios begins proceedings on Court Two at half eleven against Diego Schwartzman. And there's a whole procession of half-remembered names as the court numbers go up. Gasquet! Tipsarevic! Becker! (Benjamin).

So lots to be getting on with and many hours to enjoy before you slump exhausted in front of your computer, tablet or mobile device and rest up before the whole thing begins again tomorrow morning.

Let's all have a lovely time.
