The men’s championship at Wimbledon this year is set to be fiercely competitive with rising stars and experienced legends in contention.
All eyes will be on Andy Murray but he isn’t the only Brit who has a chance of going far in the tournament.
Sportsmail’s MIKE DICKSON takes a look at five men to watch out for at SW19.
Andy Murray has been looking more sprightly this year and he relishes playing on grass
ANDY MURRAY – 33/1
No introduction needed but Murray has been looking more sprightly this year with his metal hip and hardly anyone knows how better to play on grass than he does.
OSCAR OTTE – 330/1
The then unknown German pushed Murray to five sets last year and has since proved his worth, climbing to a career-high ranking of 37 aged 28.

HUBERT HURKACZ – 12/1
The 6ft 5in Pole knocked out Roger Federer last year and looks a decent bet to reach the semis. Won the recent grass event in Halle.
NICK KYRGIOS – 28/1
If the enigmatic Australian is in the mood he has all the tools to beat anyone. Nothing is ever guaranteed with him, but opponents will fear him getting out of bed on the right side.
JACK DRAPER – 200/1
The 20-year-old from Surrey has a thunderous left-handed serve and the rest of his game is fast maturing. A genuine British prospect, although that brings pressures.
