Tennis icons Rod Laver (Australia) and Billie Jean King (United States) watch the game between Tim van Rijthoven and Novak Djokovic from the Royal Box at Wimbledon. Both will be guests at Wimbledon on Sunday to celebrate the centenary of the Center Court.

The now 83-year-old Laver won eleven Grand Slam titles in his career, the five-year-younger King one more.

Dutch tennis legend Tom Okker will also be present at Wimbledon on ‘Middle Sunday’. The 78-year-old Okker reached the last four at Wimbledon in 1978.

Richard Krajicek, who won Wimbledon in 1996, will not be in London until next weekend.
