Wimbledon 2019 for women: Winner
Wimbledon 2019 Women’s Singles
Wimbledon is one of the greatest sporting events. It captures the minds of not only tennis fans but sports fans across the world. You only have to look at the queues outside the grounds over night to see how big an event this is for sports fans.
It also means a great deal to the players and we are looking forward to what should be a tremendous women’s singles event at Wimbledon this year. Wimbledon 2019 will take place between Monday 1st July and Sunday 14th July, with the women’ singles title being decided on Saturday 13th July on Centre Court.
The defending champion is Angelique Kerber, who won her third Grand Slam title by defeating Serena Williams in the final last year. It was a repeat of the 2016 final but this time the result was reversed.
In winning the title, Kerber became the first German to win the women’s singles since Steffi Graf in 1996 and would love to make it two in a row. However, it was her first Wimbledon title plus since Graf’s win in 96, only the Williams sisters have successfully defended the title, so history is against her.
Serena Williams is always going to be a huge threat on grass, regardless of what has happened during the WTA Tour season. She can move ahead of Graf in the all-time winners list with victory this year and close to within one title of the great Martina Navratilova.
Despite not playing regularly and being below her best, Williams has still challenged at major events since this tournament last year and will continue to do so. However, winning them is proving a problem and Williams may struggle to stamp her authority on Wimbledon 2019.
One name to look out for is Naomi Osaka. She burst onto the scene last year by winning the US Open and has since backed up that victory by claiming the 2019 Australian Open. The Japanese has little in the way of history at Wimbledon but the same applied to both the US Open and Australian Open before she won them.
Expect to see Osaka challenging in the latter stages at Wimbledon this year along with Petra Kvitova. The Czech knows what it takes to win this tournament having done so twice in her career and has made a successful return to tennis following a hand injury sustained during a robbery at her home.
Kvitova reached the final of the 2019 Australian Open and has tasted success on the WTA Tour this year, which shows she is back to her best. It would be great to see Kvitova in the Wimbledon final once again and she could go all the way in 2019.
Other potential winners of the Wimbledon 2019 women’s singles include 2017 winner, Garbine Muguruza, Karolina Pliskova, Simona Halep and Madison Keys. Potential outsiders to look out for are Belinda Bencic and Venus Williams.
