Wimbledon 2017 – Things to Know
If you’ve already got your Wimbledon tickets, then it’s time to sit back and wait for the biggest grass-court event to kick off. Wimbledon 2017 starts July 3 and will end on July 16. Two weeks of hard-hitting action, stunning forehands, grimacing splits and tight serves – the most prestigious event in the sport will bring the best out of its players. Here’s what you need to know about the 2017 event.
- Serena Williams, the 2016 winner, will miss the chance to defend her title as she’s sitting out most of the tennis season this year due to pregnancy. Jelena Ostapenko is the favorite to lift the golden trophy, especially after her stunning win at the 2017 French Open.
- Andy Murray will defend his first Wimbledon title. And making things extremely hard for him will be Nadal, who heads to the tournament wearing his 10th French Open crown.
- Roger Federer is the seven-time Wimbledon champion and will he be looking to make it his eighth? Hell yeah! A shocking defeat for the ‘Comeback King’ at the Mercedes Cup might have raised his opponents’ confidence, but he’s the Federer Express – he always bounces back.
- The likes of Nick Kyrgios, Milos Raonic, Grigor Dimitrov, Stanislas Wawrinka, Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev will all represent the outside threats. And it will also be interesting to see if Novak Djokovic finally finds the motivation he seems to be lacking the last couple of seasons.
- Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova are legitimate contenders in the women’s rounds. With Serena away this year, can Venus Williams finally come out of her sister’s legendary shadow?
Yes, 2017 Wimbledon has all the ingredients to be an epic one!
