The third and most prestigious Grand Slam tournament in tennis returns to the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club as early-round matches begin at Wimbledon on Monday, July 2.

On the men's side, No. 1 seed Roger Federer attempts to extend his career record to a ninth gentlemen’s singles title. He'll face tough competition from No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal, plus contenders Marin Cilic, Alexander Zverev, Juan Martin Del Potro, Grigor Dimitrov, and Dominic Thiem.

For the ladies, Spain’s Garbiñe Muguruza is the defending champion and is seeded third, with No. 1 Simona Halep, No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki and No. 4 Sloane Stephens the top challengers.

Serena Williams is seeded 25th and looks to rebound after a pectoral injury forced her to withdraw from the French Open.

Tennis legend and current ESPN analyst Chrissie Evert thinks the women's field is wide open for Williams or any other player. "I would say with Serena, thinking about this, what chance do I give for her to win the tournament? I give her as much chance as anybody else because the field is completely open," Evert says. "I don't even know who the favorite is. I don't know if the favorite is Halep, Muguruza or Kvitova or Serena? I give all those women the exact same chance to win this tournament."

For the first time ever, Wimbledon will have cameras on every court for what ESPN calls “First Ball to Last Ball” coverage. ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3 and ESPN+ to air more than 500 matches, and all of them available on the ESPN App. ESPN, ESPN2 and ABC combine for 140 hours of Wimbledon TV coverage through July 15.
