Wimbledon 2021

The hallowed turfs of Wimbledon are open for business after a year's hiatus due to Covid. Novak Djokovic is the defending champion from 2019, and he's half way through to a Grand Slam this year. Simona Halep is the defending champion in the women's section, but hey, anyone in the top 50 can win the title there....Some notable names have already pulled out of the Championships.

N-Bomb won a double at this year's Australian Open, while George95 and Howie72 won the titles at Roland Garros. Let's see who reigns on the green grass of London. Action starts Monday, June 28.

  • Ashleigh Barty became the first Australian woman in 41 years (after Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1981) to win the Wimbledon women's title. This was her second grand slam title. She's also the first top-seeded woman to win the title at Wimbledon since Serena Williams in 2016 and the first top-seeded woman to win any slam since Simona Halep at French Open in 2018!
  • It turned out to be a good tournament finally for the seeded women unlike the French Open, as 6 of them made it to the quarterfinals. Even more incredibly, we had all these 6 women in our line-ups! We only failed to pick the 2 unseeded quarterfinalists (Ajla Tomljanovic and Viktoria Golubic).
  • Here's another interesting piece of stat to indicate the state of flux or "equality" in the women's game right now. 16 different women have made it to the semifinals of the last 4 slams shocked
  • Dizart had 9 correct picks including 3 of the 4 semifinalists and is a very deserving winner of our comp over LeoDaVinci. George95 and srini701 tied for the bronze, by simply riding the Kerber-Muchova bandwagon and George95 takes it on a better tie-break score.
  • wwe84 takes the spoon on one solitary pick.

  • Novak Djokovic duly added a 6th Wimbledon title as widely expected, and has caught up with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on 20 slams each. He becomes the first person since Rod Laver in 1969 to win the first 3 slams in a calendar year. This was his first "French-Wimbledon" double and is now the 5th person after Laver, Borg, Nadal and Federer to achieve this feat.
  • Djokovic has now won 8 of the last 12 grand slams (Nadal-3 and Thiem-1 are the others) and with his two greatest rivals on the wane, and the next gen not quite ready to make that one final leap, and he himself looking better and better, it's scary as to how many slams he can finally end up with before he retires...maybe he will reach or cross Margaret Court's 24 slam titles before Serena Williams smile
  • Matteo Berrettini played pretty well in his first Wimbledon finals and will hopefully be a major contender in the years to come at all slams. He has the game to be a slam winner....There was a huge surprise when another youngster, Hubert Hurkacz bageled Roger Federer in the final set of their quarterfinals (first time Federer was losing a set at love at Wimbledon in his career). Hurkacz also beat world number 2 Daniil Medvedev in 5 sets in round 4, so he's another good prospect. Martin Fucsovics was the only unseeded player to reach the quarters, and once again, we picked the rest of the 7 quarter-finalists among our picks.
  • Our comp in the men's side was strangely similar to the women's comp. Dizart duly completed a grand double in style, once again picking 3 of the 4 semi-finalists and with 10 right picks in all. Well done! George95 and LeoDaVinci switched their podium places, srini701, Fifiona81, N-Bomb and wwe84 all finished exactly where they did in the women's comp too, leaving ozzz2002, gtho4 and Howie72 to play a simple round of musical chairs for their positions. We have had people doing the double before, but this sure was a strange finish from all of us!
