ALEXIS Canter cannot wait to make more memories at Wimbledon when he begins his junior boys’ campaign at the All England Club.

The Long Wittenham teenager has received a wildcard for the singles and will play his first round match either tomorrow or Monday.

Canter, 61 in the ITF Junior rankings, is bidding to reach the second round for the first time at SW19 after last year’s defeat to Yosuke Watanuki.

The 18-year-old is excited to be returning to Wimbledon.

“I can’t wait to get back on those courts again,” he said.

“I loved every minute of it last year and I hope I can experience more matches there this year.

“I just love playing there, it is the best tournament in the world on the best courts in the world.”

Canter has been preparing for his second junior grand slam at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton where a number of players on the men’s tour practised before the start of the senior main draw earlier this week.

Oxfordshire’s No 1 hit with Frenchman Jeremy Chardy, ranked 34 on the ATP World Tour, and is eyeing a good run in what will be his last appearance at Wimbledon as a junior.

Canter added: “I believe I can do well, but the way I can do that is taking it one point at a time.

“Hopefully if I do that I will get the results I believe I can get.”

Canter is also hopeful of receiving a wildcard for the doubles, partnering compatriot Luke Hammond.
