Among the Andy Murray pre-Wimbledon news conference highlights: He was tight-lipped when asked about Brexit: "I'm not discussing that today. I have followed it very closely. Yeah, stayed up pretty late on whatever night it was, last night into the morning." But the Scot did reveal he has few qualms about playing in Rio because of the Zika virus: "I spoke to my doctor a bit and some of the guys on my team spoke to the doctor of British tennis, who has been working there for, I don't know, 35, 40 years. He seems to think that it's pretty safe and that we should be OK."

Britain's Johanna Konta on Brexit: "Again, I was in Eastbourne playing. The thing is, with the tour, you're very much in your own little bubble. I haven't really watched much news. "Obviously I'm aware of what happened during the referendum. But, yeah, in terms of my own opinions, I think they're very much best discussed at the dinner table."
