Presentation of Wimbledon - Tennis
The most prestigious tournament in the world of tennis is set to begin on Monday July 1st - the biggest names in tennis will grace the lawns of Wimbledon for the first two weeks of July, until the final day of the tournament on Sunday the 14th. The eyes of the world will be fixed on London for the 133rd edition of this grass court tournament, where some of the fiercest rivals in tennis will compete for the honour of being crowned Wimbledon Champions. Last year’s winner Novak Djokovic will be aiming to defend his fourth Championships title against the likes of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal - with some thrilling encounters promised over the fortnight.
Expert Advice for your Wimbledon Predictions
Before you go about making your predictions on Wimbledon 2019, there are some key statistics and facts that you should be aware of. First being, in last year’s edition of the tournament, 80% of matches from the Round of 16 until the Final were won by the highest seeded player. While there is an occasional shock result in at the Championships, it is generally the favourite that emerges victorious in the latter stages of the competition.
One of the key aspects of Wimbledon is that each match is contested to the best of five sets rather than the best of three. The length of the matches vary depending on the phase of the competition - they are generally shorter in the earlier stages of the competition than in the final rounds. To illustrate this point, in the Round of 16 of the 2018 tournament, no match lasted for longer than four sets - with 50% of games ending on a 3-0 scoreline and the other 50% ending on 3-1. In contrast, between the quarter finals and the final, only one match ended in three sets - the final between Novak Djokovic and Kevin Anderson. In these final stages of the tournament, almost 60% of games lasted for a full five sets, ending on a 3-2 scoreline. The moral of the story: if you plan on predicting set betting markets for the 2019 edition of Wimbledon, expect shorter games at the beginning of the tournament, and longer, more drawn out games in the final stages.
How to correctly predict Wimbledon?
While the figures and stats of the tournament will be key for your bets, there are a number of other factors that you will need to account for to create a complete prediction on Wimbledon 2019. Have players been involved in intense and lengthy games that lasted for five sets? Or have they breezed past their opponents for 3-0 wins? The schedule of a player's matches can also impact their performance in the tournament - how long was their period of recuperation compared to their opponents in the final stages of the competition? All of these parameters can impact your Wimbledon tennis prediction, so make sure to give them some thought before placing your bet.
Additionally, it will also be crucial to consider the recent tournament performances of each player. You probably already know, but each player has a preference for certain tournaments and court surfaces. At Wimbledon, Roger Federer has earned the most singles titles in the history of the tournament (8), and regularly excels in London. Other top-ranked players also have a history of success at the tournament, including current champion Novak Djokovic - who has four Championship titles to his name.
