Wimbledon 2018 - Get Ready, it's just around the corner!
The Wimbledon grand slam is just around the corner. This means that the best tennis players around the world are gearing up to compete at the most prestigious tennis tournament. Who will win? Well, let’s take a look.
Probably the favourite going into the tournament, particularly with his performances at the other grand slams this year. If you want to have a safe bet on Wimbledon, then Federer is where your money should be.
Interestingly, Federer went into the latest matches that he has won without really engaging in competitive tennis for a good few months.
This means that his form is only going to improve. There are a couple of people that could compete with him at Wimbledon, but we doubt they will win.
He is number 2 in the world, but we don’t see him making that much headway in this tournament. The last time he played on a grass court was a good while back now. Playing on grass is a whole different beast, and we don’t think that his game is suited to the Wimbledon court.
Where will Nadal end up? Well, we reckon he is going to go out within a match or two. He won’t get anywhere here.
He stands a reasonable chance of making gains in Wimbledon. He recently managed to hit the quarter finals in a different tournament. His form does seem to be improving. If he can make it past the quarters of Wimbledon, then we reckon that he is in with a shout of making it all the way to the end.
It is likely that the quarters will be his stumbling block, though. There are a lot of fast players at Wimbledon this year, and any one of them could take out Djokovic.
He just is not on form. He has been performing a little bit better at the recent tournament in Queens, but Wimbledon is going to be a whole different beast to that. He may make it through a match or two, but don’t expect many big things from the Scot. Thankfully, the UK is not waiting an age for a Wimbledon title nowadays, so we can forgive Murray here! If he does win, we reckon it is going to be next year.
He is currently dealing with an injury, and it is still unknown as to whether he would be competing at Wimbledon. He went out during the first round of the French Open, so if he does play, do not really expect big things from him here. It may happen a couple of years down the line, but we do not think the 2018 Wimbledon is going to be for him.
If you had asked us at the tail end of last year, then we probably would have told you that Dimitrov stood a good chance at Wimbledon. However, his form has tailed off. He is now abysmal (by professional tennis standards, could probably give us a run for our money…). We doubt he is going to go far at Wimbledon this year. He is probably not going to find his form in time. Shame, because the grass court is where it is at for him.
Juan Martin Del Potro
He is in the top ten tennis players in the world. This is why we are baffled that he is not playing in any warm-up tournament, particularly since he is not a good player on the grass.
This is a shame, because if he had played a couple of tournaments in preparation, then we reckon that he could have walked away with the title, but nah. Not this year. He is going out early. Thankfully, we heard the strawberries and cream will be especially good this year, so he can chill out with that from the side-lines.
Probably one of the most boring players in the tournament. Does not do any theatrics, but it is this that we think could help him get to the final stages of the tournament. We could easily see Marin hitting the semits, if not the final.
Great on grass, and almost beat Roger Federer in the past. He has been suffering some injuries, but on most betting sites, Milos has one of the better chances of seeing the title in his hands at the end of the tournament. This would be a great outside bet!
