Every year, the great and the good flock to Wimbledon to enjoy the champagne, strawberries and cream, and perhaps some tennis as well.

And this year was no exception with the Royal Box at the All England Lawn Tennis Club boasting a star-studded selection of guests as well as senior members of the royal family.

Jewish actress Rachel Weisz, whose parents emigrated to London before the outbreak of World War Two, was joined by her husband Daniel Craig at Centre Court where they mingled with royals and other actors including Imogen Poots.

The final day of play, which culminated in a thrilling five-set final match between Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic, saw senior royals attend in the box, including Prince William, Princess Kate and their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The first week of the tournament saw the Chief Rabbi Sir Ephraim Mirvis enjoying a different kind of service than usual as he accompanied his wife Lady Valerie Mirvis to Centre Court.

They were also joined by Jewish-American actress Idina Menzel, fresh off a London Pride performance.

In the tournament itself, Jewish players did not fare especially well.

Italian-Jewish player Camila Giorgi, who faced Venus Williams in the Birmingham Classic earlier this year was dumped out of the tournament in the first round.

Delaware-born American Jewish player Madison Brengle who entered the tournament unseeded, left the competition in the second round, after a defeat to Russian player Ekaterina Alexandrova.

Argentinian Diego Schwartzman, whose grandparents survived the Holocaust was also eliminated in the second round, falling to Italy's Jannik Sinner.
