Wimbledon 2018 Winner Prediction
Now the most important question, Who Will Win Wimbledon 2018. Roger Federer the defending champion who also became the no. 1 ATP player in the world winning the Stuttgart open is the ultimate master of the grass and is once again favorite to win the Wimbledon 2018.
Rafael Nadal is also in a tremendous form, recently winning the French open 11th time is the ultimate king of the clay court. Yet he is still amongst the favorite to win Wimbledon 2018.
Although, he is missing the Queens Club Championship as recommended by the medical experts, Federer admitted that his arch-rival is in a great shape.
When asked about Wimbledon, Federer said, “I think he is one of the big favourites to win there.”
“Regardless if he plays Queen’s or not I think the key for him is going to be the early rounds in Wimbledon.
“There is always a few difficult first-round draws as usual. But it is a big draw, a lot of players, anything can happen.
“Like for any top guy, I think the first two rounds at Wimbledon are very important because the grass and the courts play so different to anywhere else in the world. That’s the key there.
“Look I’m sure he’s coming with confidence, he’s had an incredible clay court stretch and if he’s practising already that means he’s healthy.
“When Rafa is healthy, anything is possible for him. So, I think he’s looking very good for Wimbledon.”
Other top players include Novak Djokovic who is struggling to regain his lost form and Andy Murray who has been absent for a year from all the action and is uncertain of playing in Wimbledon narrows the Wimbledon 2018 predictions.
