Wimbledon Predictions & Tips


Wimbledon


The Championships, commonly known as Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world having been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London, since 1877. Wimbledon is played on outdoor grass courts and is widely regarded as the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world.

Wimbledon is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments which begins in early July each year. The tournament is scheduled for 14 days with the men's and ladies' singles consisting of 128 players each.

Tradition is extremely important at Wimbledon, with a strict dress code for players who are required to wear all-white clothing. Unlike other tennis tournaments around the world, there is an absence of sponsor advertising around the courts. Eating strawberries and cream is a lasting legacy, with fans consuming 34,000kg of strawberries and 10,000 litres of cream in 2017. 

Wimbledon was contested by top-ranked amateur players until 1968 when professional players were allowed to compete.British players dominated the tournament in the early years but went 77 years without winning the men's title between Fred Perry in 1936 and Andy Murray in 2013. No British woman has won Wimbledon since Virginia Wade in 1977.

Roger Federer is the defending men’s champion after defeating Marin Cilic in straight sets in the 2017 final. Federer has won the men’s Wimbledon title on a record eight occasions, one more than Pete Sampras who was dominant in the 1990s and three more than Bjorn Borg who won five titles in the 1970s.

Martina Navratilova holds the women’s record with nine Wimbledon titles. Helen Moody won eight titles and Dorothea Chambers won seven in the amateur era, Steffi Graf and Serena Williams with seven titles each in the Open era. Garbine Muguruza is the defending women’s champion after defeating Venus Williams in straight sets in the 2017 final.
