Wimbledon-ready: Katie Boulter’s themed nails

It is famous for its strict all-white dress code, but Katie Boulter will display a stylish splash of colour at this year’s Wimbledon championships.

The British women’s No 1 showed off a new set of manicured fingernails – painted in the green, white and purple colours of the All England Club – while practising on court on Saturday, with strawberries also painted in. 

Boulter did something last year and will hope it will prove to be a lucky omen this time around ahead of the first round. 

Players have previously worn bold manicures and hairstyles at the tournament to express their style. 

In 2022, Andy Murray painted a tennis ball on one of his nails and Venus Williams revealed a bright pink hairstyle a year later.

Strawberries and cream even further linked to Wimbledon this year with new partner Emirates serving them in the skies while passengers can watch matches. 

Economy and premium economy passengers will enjoy cream cheese mousse, strawberry compote, hazelnut streusel, and strawberry cheesecake, while first and business class passengers are in for a treat with strawberries and cream on offer.

Boulter is Britain’s leading hope in the women’s draw having beaten Emma Raducanu earlier this month to win her first WTA Tour title in Nottingham. 

The 27-year-old will take on Germany’s world No 61 Tatjana Maria in the first round on Tuesday and she is embracing playing on home soil. 

‘I’m sure it’s going to get more and more hectic as it goes along, it always does,’ she said.

‘But it’s awesome. It’s really nice to be a part of such an incredible, historic tournament that I’ve watched since I was a kid. To then become someone that can be leading that pack, it helps me, I think it pushes me on.

‘Knowing there’s going to be a lot of people out there cheering for me, it puts me a bit at comfort knowing that I’m going to have that to rely on if need be.’
