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.

Novak Djokovic and Angelique Kerber return in an attempt to defend their titles, but as always, they face fierce competition in their respective fields.

Djokovic’s current resurgence back to World No. 1 can be traced back to Wimbledon in 2018 when he edged out Rafael Nadal in a brutal five-set thriller in the semi-finals before going on to beat Kevin Anderson for his first Grand Slam title in over two years. That triumph ultimately opened the floodgates and Djokovic has since gone on to secure the U.S. Open and Australian Open titles and return to World No. 1, recapturing his best tennis and bringing back memories of his dominant 2011 and 2015 seasons.

Back to being the undisputed king of men’s tennis, how long can Djokovic remain on his throne? The challengers are coming in waves, led by long-time rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, both of whom are now looking over their shoulder at Djokovic when it comes to the Grand Slam title race, with the Serbian now the favourite in many people’s eyes to overtake both of them when all is said and done.

Nadal and Federer have both enjoyed resurgent seasons over the last couple of years, but their rise back to the top did coincide with Djokovic and to a lesser extent Andy Murray both being forced onto the sidelines with injuries of their own. Federer is of course the king of Wimbledon, winning a record eight titles on the SW19 lawns, but set to turn 38 years of age later in 2019, does the legendary Swiss have one more Wimbledon triumph left in the tank? Nadal, a two-time champion in his own right, hasn’t been able to reach the final since 2011 - can the Spaniard surprise everyone, turn back the clock and storm all the way to the title on his least favourite surface?

Other challengers for the title include the big-serving Kevin Anderson and Marin Cilic, both of whom finished runner-up at Wimbledon in the last two years. Equipped with booming serves and thunderous groundstrokes, Cilic and Anderson have all the tools to win Wimbledon, but do they have what it takes between the ears and when it comes to potentially facing the likes of Djokovic or Federer in a final?

We also can’t forget about a certain Andy Murray - the two-time Wimbledon champion who snapped Great Britain’s long-standing drought at The Championships in stunning style in 2013 and repeated the triumph in 2016. The former World No. 1 outlined plans to retire at Wimbledon during an emotional Australian Open press conference in January, but has since undergone a hip resurfacing surgery in an attempt to return pain-free - could we see the Scot competing on the lawns of Wimbledon once more in 2019?

Over on the women’s side, Serena Williams undoubtedly leads the charge when it comes to Kerber’s biggest threats to her title defence. The German beat Serena 6-3 6-3 in the 2018 final to win her third Grand Slam title, but the American is on a mission to break Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam titles and with time surely running out, she will be more determined than ever to emerge triumphant at Wimbledon for the eighth time.

Serena’s sister Venus remains a big presence at The Championships after winning the title five times and finishing runner-up just two years ago to Garbine Muguruza, but all eyes will be on Naomi Osaka, the World No. 1 and reigning Australian Open and U.S. Open champion and whether her aggressive and booming game translates to grass-court success. Petra Kvitova, the Wimbledon champion in 2011 and 2014, finished runner-up to Osaka at the Australian Open and is playing some career-best tennis as she continues her quest for a third major title - could she possibly draw on past memories from SW19 and go all the way once again?

Add in the likes of Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova, Elina Svitolina, Sloane Stephens, Caroline Wozniacki, Aryna Sabalenka and 2004 champion Maria Sharapova, and the stage is set for another thrilling fortnight of tennis at the All England Club!

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. Among active players, Serena Williams holds the record for most titles with six, just edging out sister Venus' five, while Maria Sharapova (2004) and Petra Kvitova (2011 and 2014) have also captured the prize at the All England Club.
