It will be Sue Barker’s last Wimbledon championships
Sadly, this year will be presenter Sue Barker’s last time hosting the BBC’s Wimbledon coverage. The 1976 French Open champion first joined the BBC’s Wimbledon coverage in 1993 and has been at the helm ever since.
However, 66-year-old Barker has decided this year will be her last, deciding to retire.
“Basically I just feel the time is right. It has been my dream job and I have loved every minute of it working so many great colleagues who I am going to miss so much,” she told Sportsmail.
“I’m very happy to be leaving with no regrets and on my own terms while I am still on top of the job, it just feels like the right time to go and leave it to others.
“I definitely will be going back to Wimbledon every year, I am a member there and above all I love the tennis. At the moment I am so busy it is difficult to watch all the matches I want.
“I actually love the matches on the outside courts, and from next year I am going to have the time to properly take those in.”
