More Water Fun for Wimbledon Stars
- Mac and Monica to play on the Thames

YOU'D have thought Wimbledon tennis people would have had enough of water after a week in which play at the famous tournament has been disrupted by the rain.

But no, Wimbledon chiefs have organised more liquid fun for fans by persuading ex-champions John McEnroe and Monica Selles to play on a specially modified barge on the Thames.

The pair will knock some balls as the barge, complete with artificial grass and nets, passes the London Eye, the Tate Modern and Tower Bridge. The event is part of a plan to publicise the big screens broadcasting Wimbledon near
Tower Bridge from the first to the fourth of July. Alicia Keyes is to play a free concert at the bridge as well.
