With home heroes Andy Murray and Emma Raducanu both having been eliminated on Wednesday, June 29th, British tennis could be set for a disappointing 2022 Wimbledon championships.

That said, there is still hope for the home nation and while ninth seed Cameron Norrie attracted headlines with his win against Jaume Munar, Liam Broady could be this year's fairytale story.

After his stunning victory over Diego Schwartzman on Thursday afternoon, Liam Broady will take to Court 1 to face off against another seeded opponent, Australia's Alex De Minaur.
