The president of the Lawn Tennis Association has backed Andy Murray and his brother Jamie to win Wimbledon titles this year.

Catherine Sabin said she felt Andy Murray and his nemesis Novak Djokovic were favourites in the men’s singles at the championships, which start next month, but said she had “every confidence” the Scot could win the trophy.

Ms Sabin is firmly backing both brothers for Wimbledon success.

She said: “When he won, the first time he won, all through the match I just thought, ‘this is Andy’s’, and I was really quite relaxed.

“I just have every confidence in him doing it – and his brother Jamie in the doubles.”
