Experts Picks and Predictions for the 2019 Wimbledon Men’s Singles Tennis Tournament
Where: All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, London, United Kingdom
When: July 1-14, 2019
TV Broadcast: ESPN, NBC Sports, TSN, Tennis Channel
|Tennis Head||Novak Djokovic|
Tennis Head acknowledges the seemingly eventual dominance of the current Big Three in tennis in Noval Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal. Only one will come out on top of the tournament, though, and for their money, Tennis Head appears to have the most confidence in Djokovic, who is, after all, the defending Wimbledon men’s singles champion and is priced +125 to top the field in London. Tennis Head doubts Federer’s (+325) chances, citing the legend’s 37 years of age. Tennis Head also brings up Nadal’s (+500) lack of success over the past several years at Wimbledon, as the main reason for the site to look past the Spaniard. For them, it’s going to be Djokovic’s tournament to lose. As the youngest of the trio and with the most success over the past few years in London, Djokovic is the top choice for Tennis Head to win the 2019 Wimbledon.
|Maxx Lipman||Roger Federer|
While Tennis Head believes Federer’s age is a telling factor as to why they don’t think the Swiss great will falter at Wimbledon, Lipman of Tennis Takes offers a different perspective. For Lipman, he’s more amazed at what Federer is able to do at his age than worried by it at all. To back up his support for Federer, Lipman points to the success Federer has had over the past couple of years. Federer has three Grand Slam titles since 2017, which includes a victory at the 2017 Wimbledon. Federer has eight Wimbledon titles and is vying to become the first to have nine. Dating back to 2014, Federer has made it at least to the quarterfinals of Wimbledon tournaments. To show just how ready he is for the 2019 Wimbledon, Federer reigned supreme in Halle this June, beating David Goffin in the finals via straight sets.
|Matt Jones||Novak Djokovic|
Matt Jones had an excellent piece about the favorites to win the 2019 Wimbledon, discussing Djokovic, Federer, and Nadal. Jones is looking at Nadal to carry the momentum the Spaniard built during his winning run at the 2019 French Open — his 12th. Jones mentioned Federer’s failed bid at the French Open this year, but expresses his awareness of the Swiss’ greatness on grass courts. Federer’s track record at Wimbledon — he has a total of eight titles in London — outweighs any single reservation Jones has of the tennis superstar’s chances to win the upcoming Grand Slam tournament. At the end of the day, though, Jones believes that it’s Djokovic who will be the No. 1 contender at the Wimbledon. Djokovic has won three of the last Grand Slam events, including the 2018 Wimbledon.
