The Big Three: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic are all more than ready for the prestigious Wimbledon Championship. Each player is hoping to add another grand slam title to his history. These three great players have dominated the Tennis game over the last few years. Over the last 30 grand slam titles, dating back to the 2005 Australian Open, there have only been two winners besides “the big three.” However, this year’s Wimbledon Championship may offer some star players their last chance to make a run at the title.
Andy Roddick has not won a grand slam since his 2003 U.S. Open title. However, he’s been playing very well as of late, coming off with a win at the AEGON International championship on Saturday (which is a practice tournament for Wimbledon.)
Furthermore, Andy Murray, seeded 4th, is trying to win his first grand slam after losing a previous three. Recently, he hired Ivan Lendl as his new coach (once ranked number one in the world in 1983 and winner of eight grand slam championships). Andy will be the fan favorite going into the tournament and will represent Great Britain by playing singles in the Summer Olympics. On the other hand, Novak Djokovic will be the player to beat since he won the championship a year ago. He also might be fueled by his grudge that came after losing the 2012 French Open Championship in the finals a mere month ago to Rafael Nadal.
