Who’ll be on top of the world?

ALL eyes will be on centre court this weekend (July 13&14) as the women’s and men’s finals at Wimbledon both take place.

And the afternoon trade in pubs and bars across the country will no doubt be interested to see if Angelique Kerber and Novak Djokovic can retain their singles titles.

In football, the increasingly briefer summer cessation in televised club action will be welcomed by connoisseurs of the beautiful game, if not players of it, as the big hitters get back into their stride ahead of the new season.

The preseason International Champions Cup offers up some blockbuster ties, not least Champions League finalists Tottenham’s Sunday lunch date with a Cristiano Ronaldo-led Juventus side (July 21).

Closer to home, the Scottish season starts in earnest as the league cup group stage kicks off.

Action begins on Friday night (July 12) at Tynecastle as Hearts square off against a Dundee United team headed by Gorgie legend Robbie Neilson.

In slightly more picturesque surroundings, The Open Championship takes place this year at Royal Portrush on Ireland’s North Antrim Causeway coast (July 18 to 21).

Buoyed by his Masters triumph in April, Tiger Woods is playing with a smile on his face again and is a dark horse to lift the Claret Jug.

Finally, the British Grand Prix is on at Silverstone (July 14).
