Wimbledon 2013

The two main English grass court tennis Tournaments start tomorrow with the Aegon Championships at Queen's Club and Wimbledon which starts on 24th June. Queen's can be seen on BBC2 each afternoon.
My  money is on Djokovic for Wimbledon again.  If Murray is fully fit he could do well.
We also have an up and coming player in Kyle Edmund who won the junior doubles in Paris yesterday.   He will make his ATP World Tour debut at Queen's tomorrow. He comes from Beverley, East Yorkshire, although he is South African born.  Good Luck to him Smiley

Re: Tennis at Queen's Club and Wimbledon

You are forgetting 2 other UK grass court events, both warm up events for Wimbledon and sponsored by Aegon

Re: Tennis at Queen's Club and Wimbledon

I did say the two main grass court tournaments as I think you may agree Eastbourne and Nottingham  are not in the same league.  I think Edmund started his career at Nottingham if I remember rightly.  I've never been to Nottingham or Eastbourne, have you?  My club runs a coach to Eastbourne every year but I've never been.

Sorry I forgot about Edgbaston.
I missed the French Final yesterday so also missed this bit of trouble on court:

Re: Tennis at Queen's Club and Wimbledon

it's mentioned in the article that Nadal shook hands with the bodyguard but it does not give the full story that Nadal made sure to thank him and shake hands by following him a few steps and calling him back.

Re: Tennis at Queen's Club and Wimbledon

I do take an interest in top flight tennis, especially I suppose as Andy Murray is usually involved in the later stages of most big tournaments, but I also take a keen interest in British Men’s participation in the lower echelon Challenger and Futures tournaments. Dan Evans had a good run to the Q/F of the Nottingham Challenger last week, earning himself a Queen’s wildcard, and there is another Nottingham Challenger this week that I’ll have an eye on

Re: Tennis at Queen's Club and Wimbledon

murray  i guess will play  wendesday..queens  club
to be  honest  , i  dont  give  him a  chance  to  reach the wimbledon final  this  year..
Apart  from a  reported  back  problem,,  he  really  hasnt  done well at  all...
apart  from a  Miami  win. losses  at  indian wells..  all the  spain matches and  not  in the french.
  , he  has been  very bad...
Nadal is  unbeatable  right now...

Yes hopefully.  I have the same seats every year and plan to attend.  Unfortunately I have a meeting in my diary which I am eager to move Wink

Re: Tennis at Queen's Club and Wimbledon

Not a good start at Queen's with the weather.  Murray is playing this afternoon.  Looks like they will be back on court shortly with Murray 6-3 and 2-1 up.

Re: Tennis at Queen's Club and Wimbledon

Very good win again yesterday for Dan Evans against Jarkko Nieminen of Finland.  Nieminen is ranked number 37 in the World. That’s two top 100 players he’s beaten this week although the win against Nieminen is far more impressive as he has some grass pedigree whereas his first round win was against an Argentinian who (apparently)  had never played a game on grass before; but you can only beat what is put in front of you

Yes, Evans did very well.  Let's hope he keeps it up. He will earn around £6k even if he is knocked out in the next round.  Possibly one of his best pay days.
