Sienna Miller puts on style for Wimbledon appearance

By Dominic Harris

Actress Sienna Miller brought some Hollywood glamour to Wimbledon when she arrived at SW19 for ladies’ quarter-finals day.

The American Sniper star turned heads among the tennis fans as she made her way through the grounds of the All England Club.

Miller, clad in a red

midi-dress with a thigh-high split, black buckle-down brogues and carrying a black mac and handbag, fitted in perfectly with the well-heeled punters at the home of tennis.

The 34-year-old was due to take up a seat in the royal box on Centre Court alongside a host of other celebrities.

Texas singer Sharleen Spiteri was spotted arriving at the Wimbledon gates, as was former athlete Dame Kelly Holmes.

And Sir Michael Parkinson arrived with his wife Lady Mary to soak up all the action from day eight, the ninth of play after ‘People’s Sunday’ was scheduled because of rain delays.

Serena Williams returned to Centre Court against Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, a day after she threatened to “sue” officials following a heavy fall on a wet  surface.

Her older sister Venus has also reached the quarter-finals and at 36 is the oldest player in the women’s singles at Wimbledon for more than two decades, playing Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan.

Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova was in action against Russian Elena Vesnina in the quarter-finals, but may be forgiven for being a  little distracted. The 27-year-old is due to get married on Saturday — the day of the women’s singles final — and if she wins will postpone her wedding for a week.
