Pippa Middleton, whose sister Kate will be heading to Wimbledon over the weekend with Meghan Markle, stunned in a yellow summer dress as she arrived with husband James Matthews.

And Pixie Lott stunned in white for the tennis, arriving alongside big names including radio star Chris Evans and TV host Declan Donnelly.

Sir David Attenborough was also among the crowds to watch as the three biggest names of the “golden age” of men’s tennis battle it out for a spot in the final.

Stars flocked to the Royal Box at Centre Court this afternoon to watch as Novak Djokovic faced off against Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut on Centre Court.

The game will then be followed by Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Agut is the underdog who was so sure he would not make it to the second week of the tournament he decided to book a holiday to Ibiza for his stag do.

“I had planned to be in Ibiza right now,” he said following his quarter-final victory.

But he added: “It feels better to be here in London.”

All six of his stags have cut short their Ibiza holiday to cheer him on against Djokovic.

The Serb will have his own team of supporters, his wife, two children and parents will be landing in London on Friday morning.

He has revealed his four-year-old son Stefan is tennis mad.

Speaking on Thursday, he said: “In the last six months or so he is much more into tennis – he brings his racquet everywhere.”

“He likes to kick a ball around like everybody else,” he added.

“Just give him a ball and he’s happy.”

The club’s commercial manager Mick Desmond expects big crowds for the headline games.

“I think people will be clamouring to come in here – not just to Centre Court but just to watch it on the hill and physically be part of it,” he said.

He added: “We are blessed with a golden age.”


A spokesman for the Met Office said Wimbledon attendees could expect some sunshine in the morning with a few showers from about 9am onwards.

“The showers will continue into the first part of the afternoon with a 20% chance of it causing some disruption,” he said.

“It will clear away to the middle of the afternoon leaving the rest of the day dry and bright.

“It will be slightly cooler and breezier day than the last few days with a maximum temperature of 24C.”
