Wimbledon is here - just don't expect a British winner

Wimbledon starts today and our yearly obsession with tennis begins.

Yes I do sound cynical! I actually love Wimbledon, I've been watching it since I was a kid. I just hate the annual 'will a British player win Wimbledon this year' question we hear every year.

Below is the blog I wrote 2 years ago about the chances of Britain producing a winner.

Despite Andy Murray, we’re still rubbish at tennis!

What's slightly sad or even ridiculous is that I don't need to write a new blog on this subject. What I wrote 2 years ago still applies. In fact if blogging had been around 25 years ago I would have written exactly the same thing.

Of course Andy Murray does have a chance but as we've seen with his previous Grand Slam final defeats, it's unfortunate for him that he's playing in the same era as two of the all time greats in Federer and Nadal.

The wait for a British champion will continue.
