Wimbledon 2015: People Queue Overnight To Be First In Line At The All England Tennis Club

The 2015 Wimbledon Championships are now upon us, with Andy Murray hoping to win the tournament after a great start to the year, the Scot is seeded third behind Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

The defending champion from Serbia will take to the grass, but it will be no walk in the park against Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany as Serena Williams will continue her bid for a true Grand Slam by taking on Margarita Gasparyan of Russia.

Spectators queued overnight in tents to secure their tickets for the first day of play and with temperatures expected to reach 32°C in Greater London, tennis fans and players alike will need to be prepared for the scorching weather.
