Ouch, only 30. What is it with young British tennis players getting cancer, did the government use Wimbledon's Court 18 as a nuclear testing ground during WW2 and never bothered telling anybody?

While we're discussing tennis players has anyone noticed how incredibly shit Rod Laver looks whenever he's seen in the crowd during an event these days? Maybe one for next year's list....

Four-times Wimbledon champion Louise Brough dead at 90.

Sad news as Brough was one of the greats of her time. She did look very frail when visiting Wimbledon in the last couple of years for various anniversaries however so this news isn't all that surprising.

Marcelo Rios

The former World Number 1 has been hospitalized since August 2 with reversible cerebral vasoconstriction syndrome(idk what that is).According to the article he hasn't been in intensive care and he is conscious and seems to be evolving fine.
