Wimbledon LIVE: Protest planned in final to overturn long-standing rule

The All England Club will be under increasing pressure to change its longstanding dress code, with campaigners plotting to protest Saturday’s women’s final by wearing red undershorts to highlight the difficulties players have faced over their rules. Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic and Cameron Norrie are due to appear later today to decide who will face Nick Kyrgios in the men’s final.

Wimbledon was rocked yesterday when Rafael Nadal announced he would withdraw from his semi-final with Kyrgios due to a torn abdominal. The Spaniard had turned up for a secret training session but he and his coach came to the conclusion that winning two matches would be impossible in his current condition.

The Australian then enjoyed a victory for his first major final, where he will face Djokovic or Norrie. The composition of the women’s side of the draw was confirmed on Thursday, with Ons Jabeur preparing to face Elena Rybakina on Saturday.

With protests dotted amid the tantalizing streak of clashes on the horizon, Express Sport will keep you posted throughout the day.
