Katie Boulter’s Wimbledon dream might have ended differently if she had been given one of the tournament’s show courts, her friends believe.

The British number 3, who was yesterday knocked out of the competition in the third round, was dealt an unexpected snub when she was relegated from the Centre Court to Court 2 for her showdown against France’s Harmony Tan.

Meanwhile, Coco Gauff played on Centre Court at 1.30pm against fellow American Amanda Anisimova – a slot Miss Boulter’s team say should have been reserved for her.

One friend said: ‘Things certainly might have been different if she had played a bit later than 11am and on one of the show courts. Usually, Wimbledon are good at reading the room but not on this occasion.

‘It seems very strange that a British hopeful who really caught the attention of the nation was put in such a graveyard slot.’
