Thousands of tennis fans have been queueing up, or camping out, to watch the first day of play at Wimbledon.

After England's footballers got knocked out of Euro 2012, hopes of a British success now turn to the tennis.

Andy Murray is in action tomorrow.

Some fans have been waiting outside the All England Lawn Tennis Club since yesterday morning to secure a seat, others have travelled from as far afield as New Zealand and the United States.

The tournament is also a precursor to SW19's Olympics appearance, the Games' tennis tournament will be held at the club just three weeks after Wimbledon finishes.
