The oldest tennis tourney is about to start just in a day. All the worlds critics , fans, trainers and players are filled with passion and eagerness to see, applause, win and cheer for all the nice and breath taking moments that soon will conquer the world.
I do not know about you, but when sports are played on grass it is a different feeling and emotion. There is some kind of miracle and a piece of magic when the ball hits the white lines on the grass i.e like in tennis, baseball,football, american football etc.
This tourney will answer many questions. Is Djokovic too good enough and will he have any competition till the final? Can Grigor Dimitrov make it to the semi-final, why not to the final? Is Federer too old and tired to make something to remember in London? When Nadal will show his great power and the skills we were used to see from him ? Will Sharapova be able to attack the second place in WTP standing? Will Petra Kvitova have the title again, as she did in 2014?
Let me tell you what my expectations are . I think that Djokovic will take the men’s title , as he is playing tennis from another planet. The choice he made , with exquisite trainer and former player Boris Beker, gave him all the discipline, sharp and strong hits , that guarantees number one place in the ranking for a long period. Grigor Dimitrov can do someting here, as he was Champion in the youth format of the tourney few years ago. Roger Federer will be the leader, sneaking in the shadows and trying to take the maximum here. Andy Murray has the advantage of the home crowd, which is not to be underestimated.
As per women, I have a doubt between Sharapova and Kvitova. Williams is not that good on grass. Much of the surprises in this tourney , I expect in the women pool.
About the doubles, I think Bryan brother will make their best effort to have the title this year. Their main competition will be the winning double from previous years : Vasek Pospisil and Jack Sock.
It will be a wonderful tourney, no one has a doubt about it. We will watch , bet and shout for our favorite tennis players. What I can wish you is never lose your focus and try to watch the tournament from the very singe game.
Take the best from this marvelous Sunday.
