Wimbledon 2019: Week Two Round-Up

Wimbledon 2019: Week Two Round-Up

The 133rd Wimbledon Championships has come to an end and last week we saw some incredible wins and some devastating losses. It was a week full of high-quality entertainment, that kept us on the edge of our seats. Here are some of our highlights from the second week of Wimbledon.

On Monday, we saw a tennis lover literally dress up as centre court – talk about a true fan!

After a tough season playing with a knee injury, Elina Svitolina found it hard to beat the opponents she faced at Wimbledon. But last week the Ukrainian saw a massive victory when she won her match against Petra Martic.

Mansour Bahrami showed his comical side during his time on the doubles court – making false shots, throwing his arms in the air and putting a smile on everyone’s face.

Dylan Alcott took to the All England Club’s No.14 court to contest the quad wheelchair singles semi-final against Japan’s Koji Sugeno. Alcott served for victory and Sugeno simply couldn’t convert.

Gabriela Dabrowski and Yifan Xu overcame Krejcikova and Siniakova on No.1 Court and it was a truly incredible battle. Both women played exceptionally well and a highlight for us was Xu showing off her left-hand flair.

Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal went head to head for a place in the final. It was the moment everyone had been waiting for and a ripple of excitement could be felt across the world. In the end, Federer made it through to his 31st Grand Slam final and his 12th at the All England Club. 

Serena Williams knew she needed to be ready to face Alison Riske as last time she faced a fellow American player, she lost. Williams continued to play better with each match but after reaching the final, she was beaten by Simona Halep.

Simona Halep stunned Serena Williams and virtually everyone on the planet as she won the Women’s Singles in just 55 minutes. Her performance was near enough flawless as she knocked back Serena Williams’ defences and iconic power.

Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer in longest Wimbledon singles final ever – 4 hours 57 minutes to be precise! This was the highly anticipated match between two tennis greats and it was truly epic and so tense that we couldn’t watch at times!

We hope you enjoyed Wimbledon 2019. We cannot wait for next year.
