The president of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), Martin Corrie, was part of the presentation party awarding men’s winner Roger Federer and women’s champion Garbine Muguruza with their trophies.

He is also a senior partner at Hicks and Co, which is based in Harpenden.

Martin was elected president of the LTA in January: “It was a privilege and it was exciting to be representing British tennis like that.”

The Duke of Kent and the chairman of the All England Lawn Tennis Club were also part of the presentation party.
