The world's most famous tennis tournament. Six-time champion Roger Federer survived an almighty scare on the opening day in 2010, recovering from two sets down to eventually beat little-fancied Alejandro Falla of Colombia. Could there be more surprises in store?

Today 13:45 on BBC One.

Rafael Nadal will open proceedings on Centre Court on Monday as he begins the defence of his Wimbledon title against American Michael Russell.

The ladies' match between Italian sixth seed Francesca Schiavone and Australian Jelena Dokic follows on the show court.

Britain's Andy Murray will be third on as he launches his campaign against Spaniard Daniel Gimeno-Traver.

With light rain forecast, the Centre Court - with its retractable roof - guarantees play from 1300 BST.

Three-time finalist Andy Roddick and Tomas Berdych, who lost to Nadal in last year's final, are both in action on Court One after ladies' number two seed Vera Zvonareva - last year's beaten finalist - starts proceedings against American Alison Riske, weather permitting.

Berdych, seeded six, plays Italian Filippo Volandri before Roddick, who lost to Roger Federer in the finals of 2004, 2005 and 2009, takes on German Andreas Beck.


Can anyone stop nadal?

Anyone with their own 3D TV will be able to watch Nadal’s biceps popping out of the screen from their own sofa, while the BBC, in partnership with Sony, will be hosting 3D screenings at various cinemas around the country. If you’re heading to Wimbledon, stop by the 3D test centre underneath Centre Court, where you’ll get to try on 3D glasses and watch a Murray backhand practically hit you on the nose.

My sentiments exactly. But i got bottom roasted last week for saying that. Also something about vd as well.

Hope Federer wins it. Sooner Rusedski win it than Murray. I don't who is more annoying, him or his mum that always gets her scowl on tv.

Berdych is a dark-horse, Soderling might just peak and i don't like jock itch. Del Potro has all the potential but a Rafa-Fed final is what purists want.

Nadal might not habe much energy left and his body has been pummelled. If he wins this then forget greatest tennis player - he'd have the Grand Slam - he'd be the best sportsman without doubt.

Given Borg retired at 26, it wouldn't shock anyone if this guy hung the racket even earlier.

Federer should retire if he he equals Pete as the would be the ultimate.

Del Potro, Nadal and Djokovic have all beaten him in Slam finals and they'll get better on grass too.

Murray, has he the nerve ?, hmm.

Would love Monfils and Tsonga to progress; both are typically french: flamboyant and great fun.

Apologies. Was taken from the BBC website.

Rafa just took to centre!

Mod & Ed

not sure why Murray is so disliked, would like him to win, but have a soft spot for Mardy Fish, I love sports people with unusual names, like the footballers Stern John and Earnest George

Anyone else but Murry

hope murray gets knocked out v soon lol xnadal to win

Supermod

VERY good from Murray after the first set.

Annoyed that half way through the sharapova match they decided to cut to another one, I was watching it on the red button! How annoying! Having to watch it online now, I wouldn't mind, but when you half way through watching something it is a bit of a pain! They wouldn't show half a movie and then switch!!!!

Rant over!

In protest don't pay your license fee.

Well played Tomic!

The croatian's touted to be the next big thing and the 18yo came from 2 down!

The other big player's Dimitrov who through a big chance away against Tsonga; but I like Wilfred so toug.

The future's bright; The future's Balkan!
