The game will now be delayed until at least 12:15 p.m.

Positioning myself on runway 3 this morning, where there is no shelter from the rain, was a serious mistake.

No tennis so far this morning, but the forecast looks sunny and dry this afternoon. That will come as a relief to organizers already behind schedule, with several first-round matches still to play, including Britain’s Harriet Dart, who takes on Rebeka Masarova on Court 12.

Iga Swiatek wins again but is not considered to be at the level of the Williams sisters

World No.1 Iga Swiatek knows she still can’t be compared to Serena or Venus Williams, despite winning her 36th match in a row to set a new record.

Swiatek’s 6-0, 6-3 win over Jana Fett on Center Court extended her winning streak that began in February and made it the longest winning streak of the 21st century, surpassing Venus Willams’ record set in 2000.

The 21-year-old, already a two-time French Open champion and heavy favorite for the SW19 crown, is surely up for bigger things, but insists she is not yet at the level of the Williams sisters.
