2019 Wimbledon Tennis Predictions – Dominic Thiem
Experts have been predicting for years that we could be sent to see the next wave of young talent coming through to challenge the big three. However, that is yet to materialise, and the winner of the big Grand Slam will likely be one of Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic or Rafa Nadal.
Players like Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev are yet to kick on in the way that was expected on them ahead of the 2019 season. If there were to be one of them that could begin their era at Wimbledon, then it would likely be the latter of the players due to his preference for grass.
The German is the second-youngest player to be ranked inside the top ten players in the world and is coming off the back of a progressive performance in the French Open. He performed well to beat fellow seeded players Dusan Lajovic and Fabio Fognini before being knocked out by the top-seeded Djokovic.
Thiem actually fared better in France where he made it to the final before being beaten by Nadal. However, that was not considered a great surprise since Thiem does prefer the clay surface.
2019 Wimbledon Tennis Predictions – The Big Three
The king of clay himself, Nadal has endured a terrible record at Wimbledon over the past couple of years, and his final in last year’s competition was the furthest that he has got at the Grand Slam since his final defeat in 2011 against Federer.
He has tasted success on the grass with wins in 2008 and 2010, but that makes it nine years since his last success, and it’s unlikely that he will change that this year. The man that he beat in the semi-finals at Roland Garros will be the preference for the British crowd.
Federer is much-loved among the Wimbledon faithful for his performances at the competition, and he has at least reached the final in 11 of his last 16 appearances at the All England Club.
He will once again be among the leading contenders to make it a ninth Wimbledon title. However, the primary challenger will likely come in the form of last year’s winner Djokovic. The Serb has enjoyed a marvellous season this year, and the semi-final defeat at Roland Garros was a rare low point following his win in Australia to start the year.
His form at Wimbledon is unavoidable; he has won three titles in the past five years, including last year’s dominant performance against Kevin Anderson. It would be hard to look past Djokovic.
There will be hopes that Andy Murray could return to singles competition in time for the tournament, but that still remains up for debate. The Brit will compete in the doubles competition at the Queen’s Club before the Grand Slam seeding takes place, so British hopes will be hanging on how he feels after that.
Either way, it looks difficult that Murray will be able to stand among the best after being off the court since January.
2019 Wimbledon Tennis Predictions
Our 2019 Wimbledon Tennis Predictions sees a Serbian taking home the title.
While Wimbledon is well-known for shock results, it looks impossible to predict Djokovic not reaching the final.
Even under the fiercest of pressure, he is able to keep his nerve, and that’s why he will be the last man standing.
