Wimbledon celebrates its great champions, but forget Andy Murray!

With a very symbolic picture, accompanied by a beautiful caption, Wimbledon, the prestigious Grand Slam tournament played on the London lawns, wanted to celebrate past and present champions. In the image it is possible to recognize Jannik Sinner and Carlos Alcaraz in the foreground, who gave life to a great battle last year and then repeated it at the US Open.

Behind them the inevitable Big Three, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, who also made history in this important competition. Further down other legends of the past: Stefan Edberg and Boris Becker, Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Venus and Serena Williams.

"At Wimbledon, we witnessed epic rivalry after epic rivalry, lifting the sport to new heights. Who will lead the next generation?" said the post. But where is the British star two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray?

There is controversy on social media

On social media, many fans accused Wimbledon for the published photo.

Everyone noted how incredibly the tournament has forgotten about the British champion Andy Murray, who won two editions fighting against the Big Three. The Scottish tennis player's family have branded this new promotional artwork as terrible on all levels.

His brother Jamie commented: "Where's Andy Murray? I mean he was one of the big four for 10 years, maybe more. He was number 1 in the world and then broke his hip, and he's been there ever since. it was hard for him. But he won singles twice in an incredible era of tennis and made another final." There have also been allegations of gender bullism, with some female players being depicted but all in the background.

The rivalries represented were those of the Williams sisters (Venus and Serena), Chris Evert with Martina Navratilova and, according to the Telegraph, Iga Swiatek with defending champion Elena Rybakina. The work is signed by Grant Gruenhaupt, an illustrator specializing in sports scenes.

The author responded to criticism with this message: "Don't worry, there are more paintings to come."
