This summer, the legendary battle for the tennis crown will finally rise again: Wimbledon!
The tournament is the oldest and most important tennis competition in the world. The grass peak has been held in the London district since 1877. On 27 June it finally starts again, on 10 July 2022 the men’s final takes place. In 2020, the tournament was canceled due to the corona pandemic. Last year, in front of a limited number of spectators, world number one Novak Djokovic (34) and Australian Ashleigh Barty (25) – Djokovic won for the sixth time!
It looks like Wimbledon 2022 will once again take place in front of full stands in London. Who will be the king and queen of the tennis world this year? All information about the tournament can be found here.
The winner of 2021 is definitely out. Ash Barty (26) ended his career – despite his young age: “Wimbledon 2021 changed a lot. I always wanted to win it, so I won it. I gave everything for tennis, I can not give it more. ”
The winner of 2021 weakens. After Djokovic, who was not vaccinated against Covid-19, was denied entry before the Australian Open in January and had to spend several days in custody, the world number one leader by form. “It keeps me busy every day,” he recently admitted. Asked about the French Open in May and Wimbledon in June, the Serb even told the BBC that he would rather not have major tennis successes than be vaccinated against the corona virus: “Yes, that’s the price I’m willing to pay, I have to pay. ” Good for the Serbs: There are currently no entry restrictions in England.
Germany’s Olympic champion Alexander Zverev (24), who was disappointingly eliminated in the last 16 last year, has announced that he wants to win a Grand Slam title this year. Where would it be nicer than at the most important tournament in the world? 2018 Wimbledon winner Angelique Keber (34) would also like to attack again.
