The Lawn Tennis Championships
The opening day of the world's greatest tennis tournament direct from the All England Club.
Featuring the first round of the Men's Singles Championship
This afternoon, for the first time, John McEnroe , as defending champion, has the honour of opening play on the Centre Court. Since 1977 the remarkable Swede, Bjorn Borg , has monopolised this traditional start to the Championship but after his defeat by the volatile American in last year's final and his subsequent decision not to enter in 1982 McEnroe will be the centre of attention throughout the fortnight. Among his 127 rivals will be former champion Jimmy Connors who, with Borg, provided an epic semi-final match last year, and the latest Swedish sensation Mats Wilander , who at 17 became the youngest-ever winner of the French Open. For the first time the Men's Final is scheduled for Sunday, extending the tournament to 13 days of top-class tennis. Harry Carpenter introduces BBC's live coverage during the Championships and keeps you up to date with news and results from all 18 match courts.
Three thousand years ago, friendly visitors from a distant planet chose three teenagers from different parts of the world and took them into space. There they were given incredible powers before being returned to Earth with a mission-to guard the human race from evil.
