Court, a Pentecostal pastor, has strong views on homosexuality. However, unlike her rivals, the two-time Australian Open champion has been forced to withdraw due to a custody battle over her one-year-old son. Martina Navratilova, who, like Court, is a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, is one of the more prominent figures who have called for a change.

Williams is obviously the biggest name there, and is not yet ready for Grand Slam competition following the birth of her child.

The Japanese star has been out of action since withdrawing from the Cincinnati Masters after tearing a tendon in his right wrist. "No, there's no chance". But the young guns are everywhere with Andrey Rublev, Nick Kyrgios, Jack Sock, Lucas Pouille, Kyle Edmund and Yoshihito Nishioka.
