Who will win Wimbledon 2015?
The Championships, Wimbledon or simply Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and is widely considered the most prestigious. It has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London since 1877. It is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, the others being the Australian Open, the French Open and the US Open. Since the Australian Open shifted to hard court in 1988, Wimbledon is the only major still played on grass.
Wimbledon 2015 just started in London. Many tennis lovers try to predict who the winners of this prestigious Grand Slam tennis tournament will be. Some people bet online at betfair.com and other websites hoping to get their luck. First, let’s look at the men’s side. Wimbledon 2015 feels much more wide open than it has been in the past. Novak Djokovic comes in as the defending champion, Roger Federer has his own ambitions, Andy Murray and Stanislas Wawrinka are also capable of winning the contest.
Many specialists believe that Novak Djokovic is the favorite to win in London. They have good reason for that. Djokovic has proven that he’s a contender on every surface as the top player in the world. But the living legend Roger Federer, who has won seven times in London, is looking to turn back the clocks and win this Wimbledon. Unlike his fellow citizen Stanislas Wawrinka, Federer has historically excelled on grass and comes in with some momentum.
“It’s probably been the best preparation I’ve ever had for Wimbledon,” said Federer during an interview to ATP’s official site. “Because we have a week more on the grass. Winning Halle has given me the extra confidence I guess it’s going to take me to win this title here.”
On the women’s side, Serena Williams is the only one main favorite. It doesn’t mean that Petra Kvitova, Maria Sharapova, Vika Azarenka, or possibly someone else cannot win the tournament. However, most tennis specialists think that Serena’s chances are much better. The biggest challenge for Williams may be Petra Kvitova. Kvitova has the second-best odds. Nevertheless, we need to remember that her career record of 1-5 against Serena Williams doesn’t bode well for her chances of actually beating Williams to win the Wimbledon.
In her interview to Associated Press posted on Yahoo, Serena said that “Personally, it doesn’t make it feel any different, which I think is a good thing because I don’t feel any pressure to win all four. I have been saying that, but I really don’t feel that pressure. Maybe if I would happen to win here, then maybe I might start feeling it after that.”
So, let’s enjoy watching great tennis at this year’s Wimbledon.
