Give your backing to Johanna Konta in her historic Wimbledon semi-final by following #TennisMusic, The Official British Tennis Playlist.
Konta, who is the first British woman to reach the last-four in SW19 since 1978, faces five-time champion Venus Williams on Centre Court on Thursday.
The British No.1 defeated second seed Simona Halep in a tense three-set battle in the previous round – a result which will see her move into the world’s top-5 when the new rankings are published next week.
And you can join Konta, who is looking to become the first British woman to win the championship since Virginia Wade in 1977, in getting pumped for her first Grand Slam semi-final by listening to the tracks she loves to prepare to.
Music plays a massive part in the British game. This playlist soundtracks the indoor events at LTA & Davis Cup Events, plus the players walk on music and warm up tracks!
#TennisMusic is now also represented on the official British Tennis website where you’ll find interviews with players and bands, plus feature music and event news – including Konta going head to head with Olly Murs, whose serves up a tennis treat with Louisa Johnson in the Official video to ‘Unpredictable’ – in a tennis challenge.
The last 30 years have seen tennis move into new markets, attracting wider audiences and encouraging young talent to participate in the sport.
the LTA believes more than 110,000 children already play Mini Tennis at 1,500 venues across the country. There are countless other initiatives being used by the LTA to get people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds involved, with a significant emphasis on changing perceptions of tennis.
