    There is traditionally no play on the middle Sunday at Wimbledon, but this weekend there is a scheduled day’s play for the first time ever.

    It is also a historic day for another reason, as Wimbledon celebrates 100 years of centre 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 to carry the dreams of the home crowd.
