Six compete for first Beard of Wimbledon title

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the first ever poll for Beard of Wimbledon is now open. It will close at midnight on Saturday with the winner announced on Sunday

The campaigners have not previously run a poll because tennis, with a few exceptions, has been a very clean-shaven sport. However observation of Wimbledon games has indicated this is changing, with many more beards now on display.

The BLF has had a special team of beard monitors watching the games at Wimbledon.

The poll is not about whether a hirsute player wins or loses a match, only Cilic on the poll is still in the Championships. Rather it is about the positive impact the player and his beard makes while on Court.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, beards are everywhere at Wimbledon this year, even some of the Umpires have them, although the poll is focused on players.
