Tipperary interest in Wimbledon boys doubles

The 17 year old son of former Tipperary and Dublin footballer Tommy Carr has qualified for the second round of the boys doubles in Wimbledon.

Simon Carr, from Mullingar, and his partner, the USA’s Alexandre Rotsaert, beat their Mexican opponents earlier today to progress to the next stage of the competition.

Simon had missed out on a place in the boys’ singles draw at the All-England Club.

That’s followed by the meeting of five-time champion Venus Williams and sixth seed, Jo Konta.
