Will there be a British winner at Wimbledon...Yawn?

Yes it's that time of year again, when Wimbledon starts and tennis becomes our national sport for all of two weeks!

Almost as predictable as England's struggles in the World Cup, the same tired old question is asked about British tennis; Will we have a British winner?

The answer is of course no! We can instead look forward to the usual debate as we agonise over why we're so rubbish at producing any decent tennis players in this country.

I wrote a blog on this subject last year, which you can read here.

I don't see much point in writing a completly new blog because what I wrote last year still applies, and can be written every year as nothing ever changes in British tennis.

Andy Murray has an outside chance of winning Wimbledon this year, but it's unlikely. You really have to look at either Federer or Nadal again.

Once Murray eventually gets knocked out, tennis will quickly be forgetton until next year, and then we can ask the same old question all over again.

It's ridiculous.
