Huge crowds predicted at Wimbledon opener

Wimbledon 2009 (credit: ststeve)

The 123rd Wimbledon Championships begin on Monday with Roger Federer the first star name on court, with good weather forecast, record crowds are expected.

Roger Federer opens Wimbledon on the new-look Centre Court at 1300 BST in the first competitive match to be played under its new retractable roof. You can watch free live streams of Roger Federer's opening Wimbledon match with Bet365.

With fine weather expected, about 480,000 people are set to attend Wimbledon over the next fortnight.

Defending champion Rafael Nadal's withdrawl because of injury has opened the door for Andy Murray and murray-mania is likely to boost crowds.

Prize money at this year's tournament has increased to more than £12.5m with both the men's and women's singles champions set to collect £850,000.

For the first time, floodlights have been installed on Centre Court, meaning that play could stretch into the evenings until as late as 2200 BST.
