Coral’s Twitter reaction to Wimbledon 2015 opening day

| 30.06.2015

It’s that time of the summer again, when fans gather in force to witness the biggest tennis tournament of the season at Wimbledon!

In a typically dramatic opening day, defending champion Novak Djokovic kicked off proceedings on centre court, with some unable to contain their excitement..

Djokovic comfortably rallied to a straight set triumph and was joined on court by a very small spectator..

The smaller birds may have to watch out, with Wimbledon’s very own ‘Rufus the Hawk’ on patrol in the sky..

The reigning champion started in great form..

Although, the best story of the day came from Britain’s Liam Broady, when he fought back ferociously to secure his unlikely progression..

Andy Murray, who is 2/1 with Coral for his second Wimbledon crown, was full of praise for the Briton’s tremendous efforts..

Not a bad day’s work..

Broady will also make history in the doubles this summer alongside his sister, so expect to see a lot more of him..

In his final ever appearance at this event, Lleyton Hewitt was involved in an incredible opening match..

For the ladies, Serena Williams easily came through her opening test..

Sibling rivalry?

A female British hope crashed out at the hands of the superb Maria Sharapova..

It looks set to be a scorcher for the rest of this thrilling event..
