Wimbledon 2014

TThe third major tournament of the tennis calendar gets under way at the All England Lawn Tennis Club and the 128th edition of Wimbledon starts on Monday June 23.In the men’s draw it’s no surprise that all the top four names are tipped for success. All the media attention will be on the defending champion Andy Murray who last year became the first British man in 77 years to lift the crown. But things have not all been rosy for the Scot who parted ways with coach Ivan Lendl, before the surprise appointment of Frenchwoman Amelie Mauresmo.

 

Murray lost his opening game of the grass court season and a semi-final appearance at the French Open means he has not won a tournament in 2014.World Number two Novak Djokovic will be looking to make up for another disappointment at Roland Garros, the only Grand Slam he has never won, and just like the others, the Serb is more confident of beating clay nemesis Rafael Nadal on grass.

 

Seven-time champion Roger Federer always seems to bounce back just when everybody has written him. The father of two sets of twins can never be discounted at Wimbledon and victory at the warm up event in Halle has punters placing late bets on the Swiss Master. World Number One Rafael Nadal has hardly been comfortable on the lush greens and the rest of the players know that this is the best surface to take him on.

 

The King of Clay lost his first match of the grass court season and was knocked out in the first round at Wimbledon last year and it’s no surprise then that he is fourth favourite this time around. At 20/1 Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov seems to be worth a punt especially after his success at the AEGON Championships while the experienced and wily Tomas Berdych also looks good value at 33/1.For the first time since 1997, the women’s draw will be without the defending champion after the sudden retirement of Marion Bartoli .

 

American Serena Williams is once again the overwhelming favourite as she goes in search of a sixth Wimbledon title. But if Serena fails to fire like in Paris a fortnight ago ,then the tournament will be there for the taking for a number of women who have raised their game in recent months and none other than the in-form Romanian Simona Halep who finds herself sitting in third place in the rankings after being as low as 47 at the end of 2012.The 22 year old won six titles in 2012 equalling a Steffi Graf record and a championship match appearance at the French open has certainly made her competitors sit up and take notice.

 

Anna Ivanovic won her first title on grass last week and 50/1 looks good value for one of the tour’s form players, while the experienced Russian Maria Sharapova is expected to put in another solid showing. Outright Wimbledon tennis betting is available on www.betxchange.co.za with match betting available closer to the start. Live in-play betting which has become a popular feature in one of the fastest growing sports at www.betxchange.co.za will be offered on televised matches throughout the two weeks while exotics and spread betting are readily obtainable.

 

Wimbledon Woman
1.Serena Williams

Serena Williams fired her way through all who faced her at the French Open, to confidently notched up her 16th career Grand Slam title. She is without a doubt the best Women’s tennis player at the moment and will surely be the serious contender for Wimbledon. Williams is odds-on to defend her 2012 title and her winning streak is at 31, the longest single-season run on the WTA in 13 years.

It’s almost impossible to make a case against her as see looks to increase her Wimbledon Championships winning tally to 6 and hence joining the likes of Martina Navratilova, Helen Wills ,Moody Dorothea, Lambert Chambers, Steffi Graf ,Blanche Bingley Billie Jean King ,Suzanne Lenglen,Charlotte Cooper Sterry and Lottie Dod – Ladies who have lifted the prized "Venus Rosewater Dish" more than five times.

2.Victoria Azerenka

Azarenka has looked sublime this year winning the Australian Open back in January, defeating Li Na in the finals. It was her second Grand Slam title win, with the first happening at the Australian Open last year. In February, picked up a WTA Qatar Total Open victory by defeating Serena Williams in the finals and also bounced back in May at the WTA Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome to make it to the finals, this time unable to top Williams for the title.

Azarenka has been knocking at the Wimbledon door for the past two years and has seen the semi-finals on both occasions and will certainly feature as a major contender this year.

3.Maria Sharapova

Sharapova, whose reign at Roland Garros ended following another lopsided defeat at the hands of Serena Williams, has moved onto claiming grand slam glory at the place of her first ever major title after defeating, guess who? Serena Williams.

Sharapova is gunning for her second victory at Wimbledon after winning 2004, She’s reached the final match two years ago, but hasn’t played according to what we know she can belt out at Wimbledon since 2006, though who can ever forget her extraordinary 2004 splash onto the scene victory , when the then 17-year-old Sharapova defeated Serena Williams.

 

 

Wimbledon Man
  • 1. Novack Djokovic

    Novack Djokovic has already reigned supreme in a Grand Slam tournament this year. Continuing his dominance on the hard courts down under, he kick started the year with a record breaking 4th successive Australian Open victory, and with two 2013 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles already to his name (Dubai & Monte Carlo) the hard court master heads to London to conquer the lawn tennis courts of Wimbledon. In this joining fellow major contenders Federer and Nadal in the elite club of players to have reigned supreme in all four majors at least once.

    2. Andy Murry

    British tennis enthusiasts will once again be keeping their fingers crossed that Andy Murry can go one better this time around and become the first British man to win Wimbledon since 1936. He ended Great Brittan’s 74 year wait for a male finalist at last year’s championships when he defeated Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in an extremely nail-biting semi-final duel.

    At the final against a virtuoso Federer, Murry snatched the first set but unfortunately could not claim the victory all of Britain were praying for. His show of emotion during the most tearful second place speeches in the history of the sport will resonate when he continues his quest for that all elusive Wimbledon Grand Slam.

    3. Roger Federer

    At the beginning of the 2013 ATP World Series season world-wide tennis enthusiasts put forward the fact that we may be in the Djokovic/ Murry era. Having said that world number 3 Roger Federer has certainly been turning heads this season as well. Although he hasn’t matched the form displayed when he was at the pick of his powers he has picked up 4 titles this season and with an unprecedented, history making Wimbledon title win on the cards for Federer those theories may very well be entirely discredited should Federer retain his title this year.

    Based on only results anyone would probably back Federer on lawn. The Swiss currently shares the Wimbledon repeat winners record with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw. He heads of to the All England Club his dominated over recent years to not only defend his 2012 title but to become the only man on the face of this earth to win this highly prestigious grand slam eight times.
