After 19 successive matches on Wimbledon’s Centre Court, Roger Federer has finally been given Court One billing, and the Tennis Podcast team are happy about it.
Novak Djokovic asked to be on Centre Court for his quarter-final against Kei Nishikori, and Wimbledon listened, just as the Tennis Podcast hoped they would for the sake of fairness.
So where does that leave the respective hopes of the players? Does a Court One assignment give Kevin Anderson more of a chance against Federer? David Law believes it does, and forecasts a first dropped set at Wimbledon since 2016.
