It's that time of year again - slick lawns, the Centre Court roof - The Championships are here.
The home country's No.1 player, and the No.1 teenager in the world, Laura Robson, practiced hard.
And Britain's No.2 player, Heather Watson, was also among those honing their grass court games.
Watson also took some time out to mingle with the other British players out at the practice courts.
Angelique Kerber, the World No.7, hopes to rekindle the magic that took her to the semis in 2012.
Likewise, World No.6 Li Na has had some magic moments here too - she has made the quarterfinals twice.
And World No.4 Agnieszka Radwanska had her biggest moment here last year, her first Grand Slam final.
Maria Sharapova, No.3 in the world, had her career-defining moment here in 2004 - she won the title.
And of course, the World No.1, five-time champion and heavy favorite for No.6, Serena Williams.
First round play begins Monday, with the bottom half of the draw opening their Wimbledon campaigns.
