June 23 2014 Beeyong Sison: Wimbledon, England

Tennis, rain, queues, strawberries n’ cream, and more tennis…let’s get it started! 

 

This year’s 128th edition of the Wimbledon Championships will run from 23 June to 6 July held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. Andy Murray of Great Britain is the defending champion in men's singles, and France’s Marion Bartoli, the women's singles champion, will not return to defend her title due to her retirement from tennis in 2013.

 

Last year, Murray defeated Novak Djokovic with a 6-4 7-5 6-4 victory to win the Wimbledon singles final. The No. 2-seed Scot became the first British man since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the title at Wimbledon. Bartoli, also a finalist in 2007, scored a 6-1, 6-4 victory over Sabine Lisicki in the Ladies Final.

In 2012, Murray was the finalist losing to Roger Federer, then after a few weeks he defeated Federer to win a London Olympics gold medal at the All England Club, then followed up with his first Grand Slam crown in September at the U.S. Open at Flushing Meadow in New York.

 

Organized and run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam event played on grass courts. The tournament is part of the 2014 ATP World Tour and the 2014 WTA Tour calendars consisting of men's and women's singles and doubles draws as well as a mixed doubles event.

Muray will have the honor of playing the traditional first match on Centre Court. Monday’s featured matches are as follows:

 

Gentlemen’s Singles - No. 1 Novak Djokovic vs. Andrey Golubev, No. 3 Andy Murray vs. David Goffin, No. 6 Tomas Berdych vs. Victor Hanescu, No. 11 Grigor Dimitrov vs. Ryan Harrison.

 

Ladies Singles - No. 2 Li Na vs. Paula Kania, No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Andreea Mitu, No. 6 Petra Kvitova vs. Andrea Hlavackova, No. 8 Victoria Azarenka vs. Mirjana Lucic-Baroni, No. 30 Venus Williams vs. Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor.

MEN: The seeds are the top 32 players on the ATP Entry System Position (ESP), BUT then rearranged on a surface-based system. Since 2002 a seeding committee has not been required for the Gentlemen’s Singles following an agreement made with the ATP. The seeding order is determined using an objective and transparent system to reflect more accurately an individual player’s grass court achievements. The formula is: 1)Take ESP points at 16 June 2014; 2) Add 100% points earned for all grass court tournaments in the past 12 months; 3) Add 75% points earned for the best grass court tournament in the 12 months before that.

 

LADIES: The seeding order follows the WTA ranking list, except where in the opinion of the committee, a change is necessary to produce a balanced draw. There are no changes this year.
