Newly-crowned French Open champion Garbine Muguruza will be targeting her maiden Wimbledon title while Serena Williams is looking to win in south-west London for the seventh time.
Meanwhile, there are a number of players, who on their day, have the ability to make headlines of their own.
GARBINE MUGURUZA (ESP)
WTA Ranking: 2
Best Wimbledon result: Runner-up (2015)
Doing well at Wimbledon this fortnight will be a true test of character for Muguruza who will be looking to back up her French Open title victory from earlier this month as well as defend her runner-up points from last year at SW19. She crashed out of the Mallorca first round after Paris but should be well-rested and ready for Wimbledon.
SERENA WILLIAMS (USA)
WTA Ranking: 1
Best Wimbledon result: Winner (2002-03, 2009-10, 2012, 2015)Comes to Wimbledon with just one title under her belt in 2016 and with two grand slam final losses to Angelique Kerber in Melbourne and Garbine Muguruza in Paris this season. Still remains the ultimate threat on any surface as she continues to target an Open Era record-equalling 22nd major trophy. AGNIESZKA RADWANSKA (POL)
WTA Ranking: 3
Best Wimbledon result:Runner-up (2012)
Wimbledon is by far her best slam having reached the final in 2012, along with two more semi-finals in 2013 and 2015. The Pole started the season very strong but her performances have tapered off a bit since April. Is typically solid in the opening week here on grass but has a difficult draw. OUTSIDERS TO WATCH AT SW19 JELENA OSTAPENKO (LAT) The former junior Wimbledon champion recently beat Petra Kvitova on grass in Birmingham and last year she upset world No9 Carla Suarez Navarro here in the first round. Is a little undercooked on the major stage, considering this is just her fifth slam appearance, but has a favorable opener against Bertens. KRISTINA MLADENOVIC (FRA) Gave Serena trouble in their French Open third round and plays well on grass. She could face Serena in the third round this week which would be a highly-anticipated encounter. Made the ‘s-Hertogenbosch final on grass this month and is a doubles runner-up at Wimbledon. CAROLINE GARCIA (FRA) Is riding high on confidence right now as she won the Strasbourg title on clay, then French Open doubles, then the Mallorca trophy on grass all in the past two months. Could prove a tough opponent for Radwanska in the third round should they meet.
