The Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and is considered the most prestigious. The tournament is held at All England Club in Wimbledon, London since 1877.
Wimbledon is one of four Grand Slam tournaments with Australian Open, French Open, and US Open. Since the Australian Open to the hard court in 1988, Wimbledon is the only major tournament held on the pitch.
The tournament takes place over two weeks at the end of June and early July, with the focus of attention being the women’s singles and men’s singles finals, which are held on the second Saturday and Sunday of the month respectively. The content year for mature players, along with young content and guest content is held regularly every year. Wimbledon is noted for its tradition of costumes and not putting billboards around the yard.
“I always want to set the goal as high as possible and this year is no exception,” Djokovic told Marca about the Grand Slam lawn tournament kicked off on July 1. “I’m holding the top of the world rankings and being the Wimbledon champions, so the final will be a reasonable goal.”
The owner of four Wimbledon titles is training with fellow countryman Viktor Troicki in Belgrade, Serbia. “Nole” will then train one more week on the grass in London to perfect the tactics before the third Grand Slam in the year. “It’s very important to prepare,” added the number one player in the world. “The grass is where we play the least. This yard requires a different approach, a different approach and I need time to get used to it.”
Djokovic identifies Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal as his main rivals at Wimbledon this year. However, the Serbian player also emphasized that the upcoming Grand Slam tournament always converged the mutants.
“Based on experience and rank, we are the three biggest candidates for the championship,” said the 32-year-old. “But many faces can create surprises. They compete for sure and have been successful in Grand Slam like Wawrinka, Raonic, Isner, Anderson or younger names like Tsisipas, Zverev and Thiem.” “This year’s tournament will be very exciting and a motivation for me to continue playing at the highest level for a long time,” Djokovic added.
Djokovic was crowned at Wimbledon 2018 after defeating Rafael Nadal in the semifinals and Kevin Anderson in the final. If successfully defending the championship, the world number one player will receive a record bonus of $ 3.06 million.
