Rain interupted play during the beginning of the tournament, but it’s looking likely the unsettled weather is over.

Met Office spokesman, Marco Petagna, said: “The first half of the week, the impression is a lot of bright dry weather with a small chance of showers coming in.

“It is really the second half of the week that there will be a greater chance of showers breaking out. Temperatures are generally going to be around average so highs of 21C.

He said: “The trend is that things get a bit more settled as we head into July so a better chance of more settled weather developing in that second week and possibly a little bit warmer as well.”

Here is the full weather forecast for Wimbledon from the Met Office and BBC Weather.
