Andy and Jamie Murray have become the latest players to criticise the state of the courts at Wimbledon this year.

France’s 12th seed Kristina Mladenovic complained about a “damaged” court in her second-round defeat on Thursday.

Following his four-set win against Fabio Fognini on Centre Court, Andy Murray said the court conditions were “not as good as previous years”, while Jamie added they “weren’t good.”

Italian Fognini went further, saying they are “really, really bad”.

At one point in Friday’s third-round match, a return from Fognini bounced on the baseline underneath Andy Murray’s racket.

“There’s quite a few spots on the court, just behind the baseline and just in front of the baseline, where there are quite big lumps of grass, almost like little divots there, which I don’t remember really being the case before,” defending champion Murray said.

“I don’t think the court is in as good a condition as previous years.

“I don’t know if it’s anything to do with the weather that they’ve had over the last few weeks and months. It’s been pretty hot, pretty extreme conditions. Not much rain.”

The 30-year-old is back on Centre Court against Frenchman Benoit Paire on Monday.
