Roger Federer has won a record eight Wimbledon titles

Wimbledon players 2019

Some of the most famous athletes in the world, not just in tennis but across all sports, will be competing once more to lift those iconic men's and women's singles trophies at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club at SW19 as Wimbledon begins on Monday July 1 and runs through to Sunday July 14.

Here are some of the top players who will be in action at The Championships and in contention for the titles in 2019:

Novak Djokovic - Serbia's Novak Djokovic ended a run of two years without a Grand Slam title when he won Wimbledon in superb style in 2018, defeating Rafael Nadal in an epic semifinal before going on to beat Kevin Anderson in the final. Returning to world no. 1, Djokovic went on to win the US and Australian Opens, but his quest for a fourth consecutive Grand Slam was ended by Dominic Thiem in the French Open semifinals. Djokovic will still be heavily favoured to win back-to-back Wimbledon titles for the second time in his career and bring his overall haul of titles at the All England Club to five when the 2019 edition begins on Monday 1 July.

Angelique Kerber - Left-handed German Angelique Kerber crowned a triumphant resurgence from the poor 2017 season which followed her spectacular 2016 when she seized her third Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in 2018, defeating Serena Williams in the final to follow in the footsteps of her idol and compatriot Steffi Graf. A three-time semifinalist or better at the All England Club, Indian Wells finalist Kerber will hope to come back strong from a clay-court season which was blighted by an ankle injury, warming up for her Wimbledon title defense at the Mallorca Open.

Rafael Nadal - Fresh from capturing a spectacular twelfth French Open title, narrowing the gap between him and 20-time champion Roger Federer on the all-time Grand Slam winners' list, 2008 and 2010 champion Rafael Nadal will look to make a big effort to capture that title. Nadal has struggled to go deep at Wimbledon this decade, but had his best result since 2010 in 2018 when he reached the semifinals, narrowly falling short to Djokovic. Can he go one better in 2019?

Serena Williams - Seven-time champion Serena Williams narrowly missed out on an eighth title when she finished runner-up to Angelique Kerber in the final in 2018. The 23-time Grand Slam champion hasn't won a title since returning from maternity leave in 2018 and a knee injury has blighted her 2019 season so far, but Williams says she's fit again - and her 92-11 record at Wimbledon is the stuff of legends. Will Wimbledon be the tournament at which Williams returns to Grand Slam glory?

Roger Federer - Winner of a record eight Wimbledon titles, Roger Federer is always among the favourites when it comes to The Championships. Defeated by Kevin Anderson from two sets up in the 2018 quarterfinals, Federer demonstrated that his passion for tennis remains undiminished when he returned to play the clay-court season in 2019, reaching the semifinals of the French Open. Playing his customary warm-up in Halle, will Federer be turning the clock back to the days of his glory once again at Wimbledon this year?

Naomi Osaka - She may say that grass is her least favourite surface, but world no. 1 Naomi Osaka will be one of the big draws at Wimbledon in 2019 as the Japanese-Haitian player appears for the first time at the All England Club since her stunning elevation to the top of the game after winning the US Open and Australian Open back-to-back. 

Dominic Thiem - Austria's Dominic Thiem continues to consolidate his position as one of the most legitimate threats to the 'Big Three' after capturing his first Masters 1000 Series title at Indian Wells in March, and reaching his second straight French Open final in June. Thiem is just 5-5 at Wimbledon - can he improve his record in 2019?

Ashleigh Barty - The 2019 season is turning out to be the year of the 'Barty party' as the 23-year-old Australian followed winning her biggest title at the Miami Open by capturing her maiden major at the French Open, ascending to world no. 2 in the rankings as a result. Barty's favourite surface is grass - with her big serve and backhand slice, can she make a big challenge for the Wimbledon title this year?

Alexander Zverev - Germany's Alexander Zverev may not be having his best season, but he still made a second Grand Slam quarterfinal at the French Open, and with coach Ivan Lendl back on court for the grass, could we see the leading light of the 'Next Gen' recording his best ever Wimbledon result in 2019?

Petra Kvitova - Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova has been having one of the best seasons of her career in 2019, having returned from career-threatening knife injuries to her playing hand to rise to world no. 2, reach the Australian Open final and win titles in Sydney and Stuttgart. Is the time ripe for the 2011 and 2014 champion, with her big serve and left-handed power, to recapture the crown at Wimbledon?

Karolina Pliskova, Venus Williams, Stan Wawrinka, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Nick Kyrgios and Simona Halep are among the other players whose return to The Championships will be keenly anticipated when Wimbledon 2019 begins on Monday 1 July. 

Serena Williams will bid for her eighth Wimbledon title in 2019

About Wimbledon

The oldest tennis tournament in the world, Wimbledon – also known simply as The Championships – has been held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) in south-west London since 1877. 

Of the four Grand Slams, Wimbledon is the only one still played on grass courts since the Australian Open shifted to hard courts in 1988.

The iconic event retains the traditional elements from tennis’s polite, amateur past; including a strict dress code for the competitors, who all wear white; Royal patronage; no play on the middle Sunday of the event; the absence of sponsor advertising around the courts; and the conspicuous consumption of strawberries and cream.

That doesn’t mean Wimbledon hasn’t evolved with the times, however. Prize money was first offered to competitors in 1968, the first year that professional players were allowed to compete in The Championships, and men and women have been paid equal prize money since 2007. With the unpredictable British summer often leading to rain, a retractable roof was installed over Centre Court and has been in operation since 2009, with No. 1 Court to be roofed. The All-England Club also features the Aorangi Terrace, a large outdoor area where fans watch matches on a giant screen, popularly known as ‘Henman Hill’ after British player Tim Henman. It is also known as ‘Murray Mound’ in recent years after Andy Murray became the first British man since Fred Perry in 1936 to win Wimbledon in 2013. Virginia Wade was the last British women to win Wimbledon in 1977. 

Wimbledon is broadcast by the BBC on every day of The Championships and attracts huge television audiences around the world. New legends are added to the myth of Wimbledon every year, such as the 183-game match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut on Court 18 in 2010, which Isner won 70-68 in the fifth set; and the iconic 2008 men’s final between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, widely regarded as the greatest match of all time.

Roger Federer holds the record for most men’s titles at Wimbledon in the Open Era with eight, one ahead of Pete Sampras, while Federer (2003-7) and Bjorn Borg (1976-80) are tied for the most consecutive singles titles. Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray both have two titles, while defending champion Novak Djokovic has three.

On the women’s side, Martina Navratilova holds the Open Era record with nine Wimbledon titles and also holds the record for most consecutive women’s titles, winning six between 1982 and 1987.
