Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal continue to breathe down Djokovic’s neck, while Kerber faces a tough battle in the fluid, ever-changing women’s game.
Third seed Rafael Nadal is also in contention and arrives fresh from winning a 12th French Open title, while rising stars Stefanos Tsitsipas and Felix Auger-Aliassime will be aiming to make an impact at SW19.
The women’s draw looks to be wide open and is packed full of talent. Australia’s Ashleigh Barty is the top seed after winning her first Grand Slam singles title at Roland-Garros in June.
For Wimbledon fans, it’s never too early to start planning ahead of the legendary tennis tournament — whether you’re determined to beat the crowds this year and secure a ticket, or if you’re hoping to catch a nail-biting final in front of the telly with a pot of strawberries and cream on your lap.
Centre Court, the main court during The Championships and perhaps the world’s most famous tennis court, is only in regular use during the two weeks of the year that the tournament takes place.
The tournament will start on Monday. The women’s final takes place on Saturday, July 13, with the men’s final on Sunday, July 14. The full schedule is available from the tournament’s official website.
Djokovic missed the chance to hold all four Grand Slams at the same time by losing to Dominic Thiem in the semi-finals of the 2019 French Open, but he still looks the man to beat at Wimbledon.
Thiem’s victory over Djokovic ended a 26-match winning streak at Grand Slams for the Serb, and he faces a tricky opening match against Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber.
Wimbledon 2019 will continue to be broadcast by the BBC throughout the duration of the tournament. Live matches will air on BBC1, BBC2 and the BBC Red Button in addition to Today at Wimbledon which will provide nightly match analysis and catch-ups over the fortnight.
