Wimbledon 2019 Live Stream
With a rich history dating back to 1877, Wimbledon is steeped in aura and tradition.
From the revered crucible of Centre Court and the all-white clothing of the players, to the overnight camping and famous queue for daily tickets, and the elegance of polished notables in the royal box, the atmosphere is quintessentially British.
Despite its heritage, Wimbledon has always been at the forefront of innovation and this year organizers unveiled a new sliding roof on No.1 Court, a $89 million bid to counter the vagaries of the British weather. Centre Court received a roof in 2009.
Prize money, too, has kept up with the times. Winners of the singles titles will pocket $2.98 million each, while a first-round loser will earn $57,000. The total prize fund has increased 11% to $48 million.
Nearly 500,000 people will visit the grounds over the two weeks of the championships, consuming about 76,000 ice creams, 22,000 bottles of champagne, 303,000 glasses of Pimm’s and 166,000 portions of fresh English strawberries, according to the Wimbledon website.
But, of course, the sport is the center piece. So who will win?
The Big Three have won all but two of the last 16 Wimbledons and 53 of the last 64 majors so it’s just possible that the winner will be one of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic.
Wimbledon’s seedings have put Nadal third in the pecking order, meaning he will have to beat both Djokovic and Federer to win the title. He’s philosophical, but not exactly delighted at the prospect.
