Does anyone know if the tournament is planning their usual opening ceremony with the introduction of all the players on centre court? I have tix for tonight's session and it's always one of my favorite parts of the tourney!

It's definitely special because you get to see all the players together as a group, and as a bonus, most of them look amazing in their normal street clothes. I remember one year each player threw autographed balls into the crowd, and there have been some great speeches from Monica and Martina Navratilova.

The men's tournament didn't do it last year, and they had in previous years, so let's hope they don't scrap it as well with the ladies!
