For the first time since 1937, this Wimbledon will contain a British men’s singles competitor with a major title under his belt. It’s hard to know how this will play out. Will Andy Murray’s 2012 US Open triumph relieve the pressure or ratchet it up? Might we relax, content in the knowledge that one of our lot has finally won something? Or will it make our collective desperation to see a British victory in SW19 keener still? It’s hard to say.

One thing is for sure, though: men’s tennis has rarely been this ferociously competitive. And it’s surely never been more spectacular – the return of the Duracell bunny of the baseline, Rafa Nadal, merely adds to the sense of anticipation. The women’s competition is probably too predictable to be truly essential viewing at the moment – it’ll be a surprise if anyone arrests the progress of the incomparable Serena Williams. Still, Pimm’s at the ready – summer starts here.
