Rolf Harris unveiled his new painting in front of the players themselves, including Martina Navratilova and Bjorn Borg in London yesterday.
The artist selected five male and five female players who have won a Wimbledon singles title, with the champions ranging from current mens champion Roger Federer, to Suzanne Lenglen, who won her first title back in 1919.
Harris said: “They are all so good at the moment, and the new ones are coming along all the time. Murray with a bit of luck could get in there, he has improved so much in the last year”, he said.
Out of the ten former champions included, Venus Williams gave him the most enjoyment to paint: “It was the first one I painted, and I just love the muscles and the strength of it all. The smash shot that she just played (in the painting), she’s just hit the ball, closed her eyes, and she knows it is going away for a winner”, he said.
The complete list is as follows; Bjorn Borg, Roger Federer, Steffi Graf, Billie-Jean King, Rod Laver, Suzanne Lenglen, John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Pete Sampras and Venus Williams. Rolf Harris paints and presents numerous TV programmes
