As the cricketing marathon continues, another iconic sporting event will make its annual appearance in one of the most beautiful cities on the globe. A new season of Wimbledon kicks off on 27th June as Novak Djokovic looks to defend his crown he won in thrilling fashion last year.
Along with Joker, another question that all tennis fans would seek an answer to is will Rafael Nadal make his presence felt in Wimbledon 2022? The Spanish wizard, who won his Roland garros in stylish fashion is recovering from a foot injury, but would want to regain full fitness as a grand slam beckons for the champion. If my body allows it, I’ll be in Wimbledon: someone like me certainly doesn’t want to miss that tournament, Nadal was quoted saying
Djokovic, though, would want to win the Wimbledon particularly to shut his critics up. After the Australian open fiasco, which led him to being literally thrown out by the government, the iconic grass court tournament gives him that chance to make up for that lost opportunity.
Another great, Roger Federer, who is recovering from a knee injury has given a major update on his return, that he is slowly recovering from his injury that has kept him out for a year since, the last Wimbeldon being his last tournament. His ranking has slipped to 50, his lowest in 22 years.
Ashleigh Barty, who beat Karolina Pliskova in last years’ ladies’ singles finals, will miss this year’s tournament as she has called time on her career. Naomi Osaka, Simona Halep, who was last years’ semi finalist and Coco Gauff are some of the prominent names to participate this year and the prize money would be 40.3 million dollars.
The men’s and women’s single champs will receive 2 million pounds each, and you can also win big with the best odds on Lotusfair.com. As top rank players from across the globe fight it out for the numero uno spot in the tournament.
