The England WAGs are busy upping the glamour ante amid the Euro 2020 , but the event isn’t the only major sporting event taking place this summer with Wimbledon getting underway today.
While the Covid-19 pandemic has restricted the number of attendees for the prestigious tennis tournament, it’s still likely to attract a dream guest list of A-listers of royalty that soccer stadiums can only dream of.
Meanwhile a host of very glamorous tennis WAGs will be cheering their husbands and boyfriends on from the stands.
Leading the way will be Kim Murray, who will be on hand to cheer on husband Andy.
Among the other Centre Court regulars will be former tennis pro Mirka Federer – wife of Swiss tennis star Roger – and Jelena Djokovic, whose husband Novak is world number one.

DATING: MATTEO BETTERINI, WORLD NUMBER 9
Croatian-born Australian professional tennis star Ajla Tomljanovic has had her fair share of dating fellow players over the years.
She began dating bad boy of tennis Nick Kyrgios in 2015. The pair confirmed their relationship a year later after the tennis partners were knocked out of the Australian Open mixed doubles together.

The player began seeing Matteo, who is currently ranked number 9 in the world, in September 2019
They had a public on-again-off-again relationship until eventually parting ways in 2017.
Kyrgios once told reporters: ‘It’s when I’m with her that I am the happiest.’
When Kyrgios and Tomljanović split, the world number 26 deleted all photos of them together from his Instagram account.
The player then began seeing Matteo Berrettini, who is currently ranked number 9 in the world, in September 2019.
Ajla regularly shows off her washboard apps on the court, posting snaps from competitions across the world to her 109k followers
Matteo previously spoke of the challenges of competing during the Covid-19 pandemic, revealing in January while playing at the Australian Open: ‘The only complicated thing for me is that Ajla is six floors below me but despite the negative tests and everything, we’re not allowed to see each other.’
Ajla regularly shows off her washboard apps on the court, posting snaps from competitions across the world to her 109k followers.
She is currently ranked number 78 in the world and has joined her boyfriend in London to compete in the competition this week.
DATING: NICK KYRGIOS, WORLD NUMBER 60

Australian tennis bad boy Kyrgios has been dating on-off girlfriend Chiara Passari for little over a year, and is believed to have travelled with her to London for the tennis tournament.
Nick and Chiara started dating in July, three months after he split from Russian tennis player Anna Kalinskaya.
In February, fans speculated the couple had ended their relationship after Daily Mail Australia exclusively revealed a nasty exchange of messages between the pair.
The screenshot of one text message exchange between Chiara and Kyrgios showed an emotionally charged argument.

While the context of messages sent before the screenshot was taken was unclear, the tone of those that followed – particularly from Kyrgios – portrayed a relationship clearly on the rocks.
At the time, Chiara responded to Daily Mail Australia’s request for comment with a series of claims about Kyrgios that could not be published.

Argentine tennis ace Diego Schwartzman, nicknamed ‘Shorty’, is believed to have been dating blonde model Eugenia De Martino for just over a year.
The Argentine model often posts enviable photos of the pair’s adventures around the world to exotic locations, and poses up a storm on the beach in bikinis.
Earlier this year, Diego shared a post to Instagram where he expressed his delight on starting a new year adventure with his partner.
While the model tends to keep a fairly low profile online, her beau has described her as ‘loyal’ and ‘funny’ in gushing Instagram posts online
He wrote: ‘Happy New Year Adventure Companion. Funny, anxious, good, loyal, gift, with a little bit of evil, with the best face in the morning. How I always tell you, that ours is until very old. I love you.’
While Eugenia tends to keep a low profile, she has regularly been spotted at tennis events rooting for her partner.
Days ago she shared a sunset snap of the London skyline ahead of Wimbledon beginning today.
MARRIED TO: ANDY MURRAY, WORLD NUMBER 118
Queen of the WAGs: Kim Murray, pictured at Royal Ascot in 2019, will be cheering on her husband Andy
The Queen of the British tennis WAGs will once again take up her place courtside this summer.
Known for her passionate displays of support, Kim is expected to bring her signature enthusiasm when she watches Andy return to Wimbledon this week.
It could be an emotional tournament for Andy, who earlier this month admitted time could be running out on his career.
The double Wimbledon champion defeated Frenchman Benoit Paire 6-3, 6-2 to make the second round of the cinch Championships at Queen’s Club — only his second win of a restricted season.
Kim tends to keep a low profile, but joined her husband Andy and his family in November to attend the world premiere for Andy Murray: Resurfacing in London
‘I’m always sort of telling myself — and maybe it’s not the best mindset — but each match could be my last one that I play now,’ he said. ‘I want to make the most of every match that I play and each tournament that I get the chance to compete in.’
Regardless of how he performs – Kim will be right by his side.
The couple, who got married in 2015, have several children: Sophia Olivia, Edie and Teddy.
The pair welcomed their fourth child in March and are yet to announce the baby’s name.

Boulter commented ‘Guess you’re OK too’ with a love heart and kissing emoji.
Boulter reached the world ranking of 82 before she was struck down with injury in April 2019 when she was part of Great Britain’s Federation Cup team.
Following the team’s victory over Kazakhstan she suffered a spinal stress fracture, side lining her for the rest of the year.

Her rehabilitation was compounded by her battle with chronic fatigue, which she was diagnosed with as a teenager.
But in a recent interview she said she feels like ‘I’ve officially conquered it’ and revealed how she is ‘as strong as I have ever been physically’.
Boulter used her time during last year’s UK lockdown to complete work with Age UK, a charity for the elderly, where ‘there was one elderly lady I called every week so I could check that she’s OK and see if she needs anything doing’.

Felix celebrated his 20th birthday with Nina, who posted a photo on Instagram on the occasion, writing: ‘Happy birthdaaaaay to this one�� Spent our last year as teens making the best memories together. The true love story is in the last picture though.’
In 2020, the couple proved how serious their relationship was by spending Christmas together.
Meanwhile Nina is also close friends with Berrettini’s girlfriend Ajla.

Tennis queen bee Jelena has become a regular fixture at Wimbledon, where her husband has taken home the trophy on four separate occasions.
Jelena started dating Serbian-born Novak in 2005, two years after he turned professional and three years before his first senior tournament win.
After almost a decade together, the couple tied the knot in 2014 and have since welcomed a son and a daughter.
The busy mother-of-two now runs the Novak Djokovic Foundation, which develops early childhood education projects in Serbia, as well as Original Magazine.
She is also a social media force to be reckoned with and has racked up more than 450,000 followers on Instagram.
MARRIED TO SAM QUERREY, WORLD NUMBER 68

Abby and Sam started dating in 2015 and tied the knot earlier in June 2018 with their French Bulldog as a bridesmaid.
She’s a successful model who has posed for international publications such as LUCY’S Magazine and Mujerhoy and has taken to the catwalk for La Perla lingerie.
The model has shown she’s not afraid to take on internet trolls, hitting back at a man who posted an abusive comment about US player Querrey after he lost money on betting on him.
‘Sickening the comments people make after a loss,’ she wrote, ‘if you don’t want to lose money, don’t bet on tennis.’
The couple welcomed their son Ford Austin Querrey in February 2020, with Abby calling him ‘a little miracle.’
MARRIED TO ROGER FEDERER, WORLD NUMBER THREE
Black tie brilliance: Mirka and Roger Federer at the Wimbledon Winners Dinner in 2017

Mirka Federer, 41, who is married to defending Wimbledon champion Roger Federer, 37, is a force to be reckoned in her own right.
A stalwart of the Wimbledon sidelines, Mirka is perhaps the best connected of all the WAGs thanks to her friendship with Anna Wintour.
The pair are often seen chatting in the royal box and she’s pals with Wimbledon regular Pippa Middleton and her sister the Duchess of Cambridge, patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club.
The former professional tennis player first met Roger at the 2000 Summer Olympics and retired from the sport two years later due to a foot injury.
Since her retirement Mirka has supported her husband both as his public relations manager and on tour.
The couple have two sets of twins, 11-year-old twin girls Charlene and Myla and seven-year-old boys Lenny and Leo.
