Traditionally, Wimbledon is not played on the middle Sunday, but this weekend, for the first time ever, a match day is scheduled.

It’s a historic day for another reason too, as Wimbledon celebrates 100 years of center court.

British stars Cameron Norrie and Heather Watson are involved in the men’s and women’s singles respectively on Sunday afternoon, both hoping to reach the last 16 and continue carrying the home crowd’s dreams.
