Wimbledon 2021: Andy Murray and Venus Williams given wildcards

Former Wimbledon champions Andy Murray and Venus Williams have been given wildcards to play at this year's Championships at the All England Club.

Britain's Murray, 34, won the 2013 and 2016 men's singles titles, while 40-year-old Williams has won the women's singles on five occasions.

Katie Boulter is one of five British women joining Williams in the draw.

Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz, plus home trio Liam Broady, Jay Clarke and Jack Draper, received men's wildcards.

Alcaraz, 18, is the youngest player ranked inside the men's world top 200 and earlier this month became the youngest man to reach the third round of the French Open in 29 years.
