Paris has gone crazy and the tennis courts will soon be awash with celebrities. There are flags and banners everywhere. Every hotel is booked out. The queues at the stadium are huge, and the worldwide television audience is tipped to be in the billions. If these players aren't careful they're going to be among the most famous people on earth. 

Jean Cocteau wants the lights cut. William Burroughs tests positive to 12 banned substances and is sent home. Franz Kafka is disorientated by the presence of his father in the stands. Pavlova dashed from side to side like a dervish. Dali appeared on a silver tray with an apple in his mouth and Nijinsky stood at the net, glaring at a cloud. Albert Einstein, A. A. Milne, Amelia Earhart, Gertrude Stein, Virginia Woolf and Enid Blyton are here. Picasso, Freud and Tony Chekhov, Garbo and Nellie Melba; they will all fight it out, round by round, until the amazing final on Centre Court.
