  1. Camping overnight “was worth it”

    It is Jitan Patel’s first trip to Wimbledon and after camping overnight with his friend Joe, they have both been rewarded with Court One tickets.

    “I’m really pleased with the tickets we’ve got as there are some good names playing today and we’ll see Konta and Nadal.”

    They are also aiming to watch England in the semi-final of the Fifa Women’s World Cup tonight “somewhere nearby”.

    “Come on the Lionesses!” said Joe.

  2. The gates are open!

    Though the sun was scorching on my walk to Wimbledon this morning, it’s cooled off quite a lot over the last half hour or so.

    That said, the gates have just opened and some of the punters look like they’re ready for a day on the beach! I spotted one young guy wearing pineapple-shaped sunglasses and swim shorts with rubber ducks on. He won’t be getting into the Royal Box!

  3. Watch whatever

    Andy Murray

    Throw away the remote.

    There is no need to rely on the taste of the TV director when the action is getting hectic today.

    You can choose whichever match tickles your fancy with every point on all 18 courts live and on-demand on the BBC Sport website and app.

    Tuck in.

  4. Will Federer fans be happy campers?

    I think we can safely say who these campers in the Wimbledon queue are hoping to watch today.

  5. Brits in action

    While Johanna Konta does her thing on Court One, there are a raft of other Britons getting their whites on and down to business.

    Dan Evans - who is the best British man on 2019 ranking points - is first up on Court 18 against Argentina's Federico Delbonis, with James Ward over the way on Court 17 against Geogia's 18th seeded Nikoloz Basilashvili.

    Harriet Dart is also an early riser, first on Court 14 against America's Christina McHale

    Katie Swan takes on Germany's Laura Siegemund, Jay Clarke takes on American Noah Rubin, Cameron Norrie takes on Denis Istomin and Paul Jubb has Joao Sousa last on Court 17.

    How many will still be in the mix by sundown?

  6. Yesterday at Wimbledon

    Here are the best bits of yesterday's action, boiled down to 100% proof and served up in a two-minute shot of video goodness.

  7. On Centre

    Serena Williams

    Centre Court is packed to the rafters with Wimbledon royalty.

    Defending women's champion Angelique Kerber gets the show underway before Roger Federer and Serena Williams - 15 singles titles between them - lead us into the afternoon.

  8. Rules of the queue

    Sonia Oxley

    BBC Sport at Wimbledon

    If any of these tents are yours, you might want to come and grab them quickly.

    Honorary stewards were doing the rounds this morning in Wimbledon Park, knocking on tent doors (well, if you can actually knock on a tent door) and checking if people were actually inside.

    And to those sitting outside their tents they were asking: “Have you read our code of conduct? You’re not allowed to leave your tents.”

  9. Konta gets her campaign going

    Johanna Konta

    Your best ticket on day two of the Championships might well be on Court One.

    As well as British number one Johanna Konta beginning her campaign against Romanian world number 132 Ana Bogdan, you have newly-crowned world number one Ashleigh Barty and Rafael Nadal, slightly peeved at his number three seeding, in action as well.

  10. Coco a go,go

    Did we witness a similar passing of the flame on Wimbledon's opening day?

    Coco Gauff, a frightening 15 years and 122 days old, downed five-time champion Venus Williams in the result of Monday.

    "She has been raised for greatness and this is beginning," said former Grand Slam champion Tracey Austin.

  11. End of an era, start of an era

    Roger Federer

    In 2001, Pete Sampras, a seven-time champion and winner of the men's title in the last four years, faced a 19-year-old Roger Federer, ranked 15th in the world, in the fourth round of Wimbledon.

    The Swiss, making his Centre Court debut, pulled off an extraordinary 7-6(7) 5-7 6-4 6-7(2) 7-5 victory to announce himself as the American's heir apparent.

    Two years later, Federer won the first of his eight Wimbledon crowns.
