It's 40 years since a Briton won the Wimbledon ladies' singles title but hopes are high that Johanna Konta can end that run.
Since Virginia Wade's Silver Jubilee year triumph of 1977, few Brits have gone into Wimbledon as short in the betting as Konta.
However, despite being among the favourites to claim the title, Konta will know she probably will hold better claims at the US Open later this summer with grass not necessarily her best surface.
Warm-up results had not met the high expectations surrounding a player who has become a regular member of the world's top 10 over the past 12 months.
She made the final of a weak event in Nottingham only to be upset by Donna Vekic and then was heavily beaten by Coco Vandeweghe in Birmingham.
However, things picked up in Eastbourne where French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko and world number one Angelique Kerber were both defeated.
At the same time, Konta also picked up a worrying spine injury, one which forced her withdrawal from the event at the semi-final stage - and cast doubt over her Wimbledon hopes.
All things considered, you just sense that the time to back her may well be for the following Grand Slam in New York.
