WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Fans are back at Wimbledon after a one-year hiatus and the gray, overcast weather felt right at home at an event notorious for its rain delays.

The usual flower-filled grounds greeted the many fans that poured through gates on the opening day of the tournament. Stands selling food, drinks and souvenirs were staffed and doing business right from the start and stewards were helping spectators find their way around. The weather also played its part with the start of play delayed for about two hours.

Graduate student Hannah Scott says “perfect spectator weather. You’re not going to burn in the sun.”
