2018 Wimbledon Championship

2 Jul 2018 - 15 Jul 2018

The Wimbledon Championships is one of the four Grand Slam tournaments which are held annually in tennis. The tournament takes place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club situated in Wimbledon, England.


The 2018 Wimbledon Championship is the 132nd edition of the tournament, the 51st edition in the Open Era and the third Grand Slam of 2018.


Like always, the Wimbledon will be played on grass courts. It is the only Grand Slam to be held on grass courts and is a part of the ATP World Tour as well as the WTA tour.


About


The Wimbledon Championships is hosted by the All England Lawn Tennis Club and the International Tennis Federation. The tournament gets underway on 2nd July 2018 with the drawing ceremony. The final will be played on 15th July 2018.


The total prize money for the 2018 Wimbledon is £34 million. The Gentlemen’s and Ladies’ Single Champions will each receive £2.25 million as prize money.


Defending Champions


Going into the 2018 Wimbledon, Roger Federer will defend his men’s singles crown which he won a year back. It was his record eighth win at Wimbledon and also extended his Grand Slam win record to 19. The Swiss maestro won the final beating Marin Cilic of Czech Republic 6-3, 6-1 and 6-4. Federer will go into the 2018 tournament having risen recently to the top of the ATP rankings on course of his win in the Stuttgart tournament.


The ladies’ singles title at the 2017 Wimbledon was won by Spanish player Garbine Muguruza. Muguruza won the tournament for the first time as she beat Serena Williams 7-5, 6-0. The defending champion will go into the tournament having lost in the French Open semi-final to eventual champion Simona Halep. She is ranked third in the WTA rankings.


Favourites


Federer will be playing as the overwhelming favourite in the men’s singles division to win a second consecutive title and a record ninth title at the All England Lawn Tennis Club. Second ranked Rafael Nadal will also be among the favourites after he won the French Open yet again quite convincingly.


Brit Andy Murray will make a return to the circuit after spending months away from the game. Winning the title, he won two years back will be a great way to return for Murray.

Among the ladies’ section, the likes of Simona Halep, Caroline Wozniacki and Garbine Muguruza will look to fight for the titles amongst themselves. However, the veterans in Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams and Serena Williams will also look to mount a serious challenge and turn back the pages of their career. Sharapova will be back at the Wimbledons after two years.
