Wimbledon tennis: 'What a moment' - Jack Draper gets standing ovation against Novak Djokovic on emotional day
Day one of the Wimbledon action on Centre Court provided a wonderful atmosphere and plenty of ovations from a hugely appreciative and happy crowd. Britain's Jack Draper received a very memorable standing ovation after he clinched the first set of his Wimbledon first-round clash against world number one Novak Djokovic following pre-match receptions for the NHS staff and scientists.
