Where does Wimbledon 2019 take place?


The third of the four Grand Slam events – the only one held on grass – is held at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, based in Church Road, Wimbledon, south west London, SW19. They have been held there since 1877. Perhaps the world’s most famous tennis court, Centre Court, with its capacity of 14,979 seats, is only in regular use during the two weeks of the year that The Championships take place. Total attendance in 2018 was 473,169 across 13 days. There are 39,000 spectators in the grounds at any one time.

Who is the current Wimbledon Men’s Champion?


Wimbledon 2018 was one of the most memorable at the All England Club for many years, with the two Men’s semi-finals being the longest in tournament history. The first semi-final saw Kevin Anderson defeat John Isner 26-24 in the final set in a match that lasted over six hours. The second semi-final saw Novak Djokovic defeat Rafael Nadal 10-8 in the final set after an overnight delay. Djokovic, who entered the tournament ranked No.21, following six months out due to an elbow injury, had not won a Grand Slam title since the French Open in 2016, defeated Anderson 6-2 6-2 7-6 to claim his fourth Wimbledon title.

Who is the current Wimbledon Ladies’ Champion?


Angelique Kerber, who had been defeated in the final in 2016, landed her first Wimbledon title in 2018 and only dropped one set on her way to a third Grand Slam. The Australian and US Open champion in 2016 and former world No1 didn’t have an easy path to the final. She dropped the first set to 2017 Girl’s Singles champion Claire Liu in the second round, before beating Belinda Bencic for the first time in four attempts to reach the last eight. Daria Kasatkina was her quarter-final victim and after a straight sets semi-final win over Jelena Ostapenko , the No11 seed overcame No25 seed Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 in the final.

Who are the reigning Wimbledon Doubles Champions?


Mike Bryan and Jack Sock defeated Raveen Klaasen and Michael Venus 6-3 6-7, 6-3, 5-7, 7-5 in an epic 2018 final. It was Bryan’s 17th Grand Slam Men’s Doubles title and his first with a partner other than his brother, Bob. Defending champions Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo were defeated in the second round by Jonathan Erlich and Marcin Matkowski.

Who will win Wimbledon 2019?


The ante-post GentingBet tennis odds suggest that Novak Djokovic is the man to beat, as he bids for a fifth Wimbledon title. At the age of 37, Roger Federer, who had 20 Grand Slam victories to his name entering the 2019 season, is bidding for a ninth Wimbledon title and is bidding to regain the title he last won in 2017. Rafael Nadal is king of the clay courts, but he has won Wimbledon twice – the last time in 2010 – and the Spaniard, who will be 33 when the tournament starts, would like nothing better than to reach a sixth Wimbledon final. Outside of Sir Andy Murray who has been battling injury and has won two Wimbledon titles (2013 and 2016), no other player outside of the big three – Federer, Djokovic and Nadal – has won the Men’s title since 2002. Serena Williams has won the Ladies’ title on seven occasions, the last of those coming in 2016. Angelique Kerber is sure to make a bold defence of her title, and while reigning US Open, Australian Open and World No1 Naomi Osaka has not gone beyond the third round at Wimbledon before, she is likely to be a major force, along with powerful left-hander Petra Kvitova, who won this tournament in 2011 and 2014.

Best Bets for Wimbledon 2019?


GentingBet Wimbledon Tennis odds are among the most competitive in the world. Wimbledon is the biggest betting event in the calendar, but there are also a huge range of tournaments to bet on, including the US Open, French Open and Australian Open, plus ATP and WTA events throughout the year. In-play (or in-running) betting is on offer at GentingBet, with a variety of markets to bet on while you watch the live action unfold. You can never bet against a rain-free Wimbledon, however. Since 1922, there have been just seven years where no rain interruptions have been recorded (1931, 1976, 1977, 1993, 1995, 2009, 2010).

How can I watch and stream Wimbledon live?


Wimbledon 2019 will be broadcast live by the BBC throughout the duration of the tournament. The BBC will air live matches on BBC1, BBC2 and on the BBC Red Button, in addition to Today at Wimbledon, which will provide nightly match analysis. Wimbledon 2019 will also be broadcast on ESPN and ESPN2 for viewers in the USA.

How does Wimbledon 2019 seeding work?


Seeding has been based on computer rankings since 1975. Since 1927 only two unseeded players have won the Men’s Singles – Boris Becker (1985) and Goran Ivanisevic (2001). No unseeded player has won the Ladies’ Singles. Eleven unseeded players have reached the final of the Men’s Singles and four unseeded players have reached the final of the Ladies’ Singles. There are 32 seeds in Men’s and Ladies’ singles tournaments. The seeds are the top 32 players on the ATP ranking list, and they are then rearranged on a surface-based system. The formula is: Take the ATP Ranking points at 24 June 2019, add 100% of the points earned for all grass court tournaments in the immediate past 12 months period prior to 24 June 2019 and add 75% of the points earned for the best grass court tournament in the 12 months prior to that.

Who has won the most Wimbledon titles?


In the Open Era, since the inclusion of professional tennis players in 1968, Roger Federer (2003–2007, 2009, 2012, 2017) holds the record for the most Men’s Singles titles with eight. He has reached the final on a record 11 occasions. Bjorn Borg (1976–1980) and Federer (2003–2007) share the record for most consecutive victories with five. Martina Navratilova holds the all-time record for the most Ladies’ titles at Wimbledon with nine (1978-79, 1982-87, 1990).
