Who were the celebrities at Wimbledon 2018 on Day One
There was a flocking of celebrities at Wimbledon 2018. Singer Sir Cliff Richard was seen on the first day of the tennis tournament. He is a great tennis fan and was grinning widely and was overtly extremely happy to be there on day one of this famous tennis competition. A cheerful Sir Cliff Richard was the first celebrity to enter the gates of Wimbledon.
He preferred to wear a slim-fit turquoise suit with a matching tie and happily posed for photographers at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on Monday. The singer had a gold tie chain with a turquoise pocket square and mirrored sunglasses. He had a rose in the breast pocket.
Sir Cliff and his reactions on day one performance
He was excited to be able to make it to the tournament but was sad for the tennis player Andy Murray who was unable to play at the match due to an injury. He held an optimistic view for the day ahead.
He to the Press Association:
“It is such a fantastic day, I am looking forward to it, and seeing [Roger] Federer.
“It is a shame about Murray, but I think it is probably a good idea. He can repair and prepare for the American (US Open).”
“The fact is we have got some other players coming through – Johanna Konta has been doing really well – and it is good for the public to have some people to cheer for.
“Murray is a disappointment for me – he’s my favourite – but I think it is for the best.”
