The opening day of the world's greatest tennis tournament, direct from the All England Club. Featuring the first round of the Men's 's Singles Championship.
JOHN MCENROE , as defending Champion, has the honour of opening play on the Centre

As well as last year's finalist JIMMY CONNORS , who has won twice here, and IVAN LENDL , twice a winner over McEnroe this year, there are others emerging as real contenders, including MATS WILANDER, winner of the recent French Championship.
They are just 4 of the 128 contenders for the most prestigious title in tennis.
HARRY CARPENTER introduces live coverage with news and results from all match courts.

Millions more live in crumbling houses they can't afford to repair. As people struggle to buy their own homes, Richard Lindley talks to the families and old people who have found home ownership not a boon but a burden — and more than they can bear.
