WIMBLEDON 2018Wimbledon - News and Results

Wimbledon Finals are won by Kerber and Djokovic

Wimbledon has been and gone: yet another summer sporting event comes to an end. And this time it passed without any rain at all.

The women’s final was a match between 11th seed Angelina Kerber of Germany and 23 time major champion Serena Williams. Williams tried to become the first mother to win Wimbledon.

She came into the tournament ranked very low as she hadn’t played much since having a baby, yet the Wimbledon seeding committee courted controversy by putting her 25th on their list. She certainly did justice to the faith the organisers put in her by going all the way to the final.

In it she met the 30-year old German, who had played very consistently in all of her matches throughout the tournament. She dropped her normally defensive style in favour of a more attaching one in order to try to unsettle the 36-year old American. It worked beautifully and she won her first Wimbledon title, 2-0 (6-3, 6-3).

The men’s final turned out to be a rather bland affair. Both semi-finals had been epic matches, lasting 6 and a half hours. The Djokovic Nadal match had to be abandoned at midnight on the Friday at 2-1, and they had to resume prior to the women’s final. It was an epic encounter that Djokovic narrowly won 3-2.

Anderson also played a very long match, beating Isner 3-2.

The final was all one-way in favour of Djokovic however, as he overpowered South African Kevin Anderson, who seemed to be overwhelmed a bit by the event. He made a lot of errors at the start of the match, and never got into a rhythm, only making a bit of a game of it in the third set.

The Serb took his first Grand Slam title in two years 3-0 (6-2, 6-2, 7-6). He is back.

Tuesday 10th July - Latest News

Wimbledon enters the key knockout stages.

We have reached the quarter finals of the competition, which this year has been blighted by very hot conditions of the type you normally get at the Australia Open. Full on sunshine on a daily basis have made some of the longer games rather a lot harder than usual.

The women’s competition has lost all of its top 10 seeds already, something that has never happened before. This may benefit multiple winner Serena Williams who was controversially seeded, albeit low down the order, after a long absence for competitive tennis after having a baby. This makes the competition completely open, and should in theory at least leave the way open for Angelina Kerber, a previous grand slam winner. Or can Serena perhaps find her previous form?

Kerber is still the favourite with the bookies at 11/5, with Serena Williams at 5/2.

In the men’s competition it is very clear that number 1 seed Roger Federer is the man to beat. Despite the heat he seems to have hardly dropped a bead of sweat, winning all of his matches 3-0. He has some tougher opposition however still remaining in the shape of Novak Djokovic, who finally seems to be finding some form again after a couple of years in the doldrums. He knocked out Kyle Edmund on the way, and he has shown some of his previous form.

The other big player still in the draw is Rafa Nadal. He may not be the best known for his grass play, but his displays of skill and power so far have left an impression. He will have to overcome the battling serve master Juan del Potro to advance to the semis. He will need all his returning skills to get through.

Federer has best odds of 5/6 with the bookmakers, Djokovic is the second favourite at 9/2, with Nadal third at 11/2.

The opening day saw a number of shocks with Sloane Stephens, Elina Svitolina and Grigor Dimitrov among the big names going out. The trend continued yesterday with former champions Petra Kvitova and Maria Sharapova among the seeds to be knocked out. Sharapova, the 22nd seed, had match point in the second set but ended up losing 6-7 (3-7) 7-6 (7-3) 6-4 to world number 132 and fellow Russian Vitalia Diatchenko. It was Sharapova's first defeat in the opening round at Wimbledon. Kvitova was one of the favourites for the women's singles title but struggled physically in her defeat by world number 50 Aliaksandra Sasnovich.
