Wimbledon - Williams & Djokovic Take the Lead


Serena Williams at WimbledonWith the 2015 Wimbledon underway starting today Monday the 29th of June 2015 we see that the tournament is already moving in the direction of many projections, but beware as there is a lot of tennis to be played ton grass courts yet.

Yes, the top seed S. William (WTA) who started the 1st set struggling a bit, and was behind 3-1 in the 1st, was determined to win and was tired of starting out a set behind.


The 5 time champ started playing her game as she won 11 of the total 13 games and beat the low ranked 113th Russian M. Gasparyan at 6-4 and 6-1 yesterday as she increased her Slam streak of 22 as she seeks her 4th consecutive major  title this season.

This opening match of the 2015 WTA Wimbledon was played on Court 1 and was seeking to be the 1st player since back in 1988 as S. Graf finished the Grand Slam Calendar year, the sweep of all 4 tournaments in the same year.

Yes, on Monday she started slow and in the 6th game she was cited for audible obscenity after she fell on the grass and cussed. Then Williams composed herself, against her opponent, Margarita Gasparyan who was in her 1st debut, at Wimbledon. Yes, Williams made errors, some 19 to be exact, but she managed to break serve on 4 occasions an lost only 1 time her serve.

In the men’s (ATP) things did not go quite straight for defending Champ Djokovic who took the lead in the match and led throughout 6-4, 6-4 and 6-4 beating German- P. Kohlschreiber, and said it was great to be back at the All England Club where last season in the final he beat R. Federer for the Title.  

Some online sportsbooks were hoping that the German, Kohlschreiber, who is the highest ranked outside the seeding at the No. 33 slot, had a chance or at least be a tough opponent for Djokovic, who comes to Wimbledon after losing the French Open to S. Wawrinka, but unfortunately for him, did not stand a chance in his match on the grass of Wimbledon.  

However, the Serbian Djokovic was no struggling in this match, and took command with his all over the court game, as he had 12 aces serving and broke serve on some 5 different occasions.  

This Wimbledon, the 129th Edition started with sunny conditions and temperatures at 70 degrees Fahrenheit, as the forecasters for the Weather, predicted a hot spell for the All London Club this week with temperatures reaching 90 degrees Fahrenheit by Wednesday.

For the men’s circuit, other winners on Monday have been No. 9 M. Cilic, No. 16 D. Goffin, No. 17 J. Isner and No. 26 N, Kyrgios to date.
