Get your strawberries and cream out because we’re coming up to the Wimbledon 2019 tennis season.
Andy Murray, although keyed into retire could be making an appearance for some doubles to celebrate his Wimbledon career, despite suffering from a debilitating hip injury.
Djokovic and Kerber are the current defending champs and we are keen to see if they will keep their Wimbledon crown this year. Of course, Roger Federer will probably make a come back in 2019 but will have to beat Djokovic and Nadal to pull through.
The excitement does not however end there, you can always find a way to find out how to bet on the tennis to further spice up your viewing enjoyment.
One thing is for sure, this year will be another tremendous Wimbledon season, and we can’t wait till it begins in earnest. There is a mood of real burgeoning anticipation this year, and the betting possibilities are immense. Now is the time to analyse the player statistics and to make those forward bets before the odds change.
Other upcoming players that could threaten the Djokovic crown are:
At World No. 4 and aged 25, Thiem is in his sporting prime, and has a long way to go till he finds his best form. His latest title in Barcelona came at the expense of home favourite Nadal and he denied Federer a sixth title at Indian Wells in March proving he is certainly capable of upsetting the best on their favourite surfaces.
Current World No. 3 is this 22 year old German. Winning nine ATP titles in the last two seasons. Notable for beating both Federer and Djokovic in the ATP finals in London last year.
Medvedev is one player to watch for, as he has the same makeup as Djokovic. He could definitely pull out some tricks from his tennis bag this season to prove his ground.
The Wimbledon prize pot will also see an increase of 11.8 percent and total £38 million ($49 million) for this year’s championships.
The men’s and women’s singles champions will receive £2.35 million ($3.06 million) each — £100,000 more than the previous year.

Don’t forget to avoid the touts, and unless you’re a celebrity with VIP access, you will have to contend with The Queue – an ominous line of people that goes around the block and then some. Don’t forget to bring your tent.
