Wimbledon Preview: Williams, Federer Closely Watched

Wimbledon kicks off Monday. On the women's side, Romania's Simona Halep is the top seed, but someone much lower in the rankings will be closely followed: Serena Williams. It's her first Wimbledon since having her baby last year and she has won seven Wimbledon titles. Spain's Garbine Muguruza won the tournament last year.

On the men's side, Roger Federer is the defending champion. He'll be trying for his ninth Wimbledon win. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson previews with the BBC's tennis correspondent Russell Fuller (@russellcfuller).

This BBC interview can be heard in the Here & Now podcast or with the WBUR app.
