Wimbledon: When Is The Draw & More
Since 2003, only four players — Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Andy Murray — have won the Wimbledon singles title. All eyes will be on the quartet again at The Championships in 2019, with Djokovic, Nadal and Federer leading the chase for the singles title and Murray continuing his comeback by playing doubles.
Djokovic made an emotional run to his fourth Wimbledon title last year at The All England Club, a triumph that lifted the Serbian back into the Top 10 and helped him propel to an year-end No. 1 finish in the ATP Rankings. “It took me many tournaments, but I couldn’t pick the better place, to be honest, in the tennis world to peak and to make a comeback,” he said.
Two-time champion Nadal will come to Wimbledon on a 12-match winning streak after celebrating his first two titles of the season at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia in Rome and at Roland Garros. Eight-time champion Federer will also enter the grass-court major with momentum after clinching his 10th title at last week’s NOVENTI OPEN in Halle.
Murray, who in 2013 became the first British male singles champion since Fred Perry in 1936, will focus his efforts on doubles as he teams up with Pierre-Hugues Herbert. In his first tournament back from hip surgery, Murray capped off a dream week with Feliciano Lopez at The Queen’s Club by winning the Fever-Tree Championships title.

Did You Know… Since the first Championships in 1877, Wimbledon has grown from its roots as a garden-party tournament to a Grand Slam tournament with a following of millions around the world. The only Slam contested on grass continues to honour many long-standing traditions, including a strict dress code for competitors, the eating of strawberries and cream and royal patronage.
