The third Grand Slam of the year is currently underway in Wimbledon, England.
It’s been a showcase of the A-list stars in the tennis world (ATP and WTA) as players vie for a shot at glory or to move even further up on the world rankings.
The tournament, which has lasted for a week now, has seen the shock exit of some big names.
In the ATP, names like Marin Cilic (3rd seed), Alexander Zverev (4th seed), Grigor Dimitrov (6th seed), Richard Gasquet, Fernando Verdasco, David Goffin, Dominic Thiem, have all been kicked out of the competition.
In the WTA, Simona Halep (1), Venus Williams (9), Maria Sharapova (24th seed), Sloane Stephens (4th seed) have all be ousted from the competition.
From the several names that started the tournament, only 32 players remain – 16 in the Gentlemen’s category and 16 in the Ladies’ category.
As the round of 16 games start on Monday – which is also known as Manic Monday, these are the players who have done well for themselves and look like they will go far in the tournament:
Despite starting the competition as the 25th seeded player, the American’s display in recent days has shown to the world that the queen is back.
In the past three games she has played in Wimbledon, Serena Williams has not dropped a single set, defeating all her opponents in straight sets.
Another female tennis player yet to drop a set since Wimbledon 2018 started off. Although she’s not ranked in the top 10, she made a habit of making light work of her opponents, beating some of them sometimes to love (she defeated Diatchenko 6-0, 6-4)
Unseeded Vekic has been responsible for the elimination of the likes of Sloane Stephens and two other players. What’s more? She’s also yet to drop a set since the tourney began. An amazing achievement for the 22-year old player who has never made it past the 2nd round at Wimbledon.
The man who won the 2017 edition of the Wimbledon title, without losing a set, is at it again. The Swiss player is currently on a run of not dropping a single set, after playing three games. He looks like he’s well on his way to another Grand Slam title, a second of the year.
The Spaniard is one of the many male players yet to drop a single set since the tournament began.
The Serbian continues his return from elbow injury with his amazing run of form in England. With his form, he has positioned himself well as one of the names to look out for in the men’s category.
Which of these players do you think will go all the way to the final of Wimbledon 2018? Leave us your comments and share your thoughts with us.
