2016 Wimbledon Preview
The All England Lawn Tennis Club in London will be hosting the top tennis players in the world at the 2016 Wimbledon Tennis Tournament for the 130th edition of the championships. Coming into the 2016 Wimbledon there is a fight between this year's French Open winner, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray, who is ranked No. 2, for the win. Even though Roger Federer missed the French Open to recover from an injury, he will be returning to his best surface at Wimbledon’s grass court to take another run at the competition. This is a scenario Wimbledon fans have seen before between Djokovic, Murray and Federer, but it is predicted that Djokovic will defend his title and come that much closer to a calendar-year Slam. For the women’s side, the final match-up is expected to be against No. 1 Serena Williams and 2016 French Open winner, Garbine Muguruza. Williams will be competing to defend her Ladies single championship at the 2015 Wimbledon, but after a defeat by Muguruza in the French Open, the Wimbledon trophy is up for grabs.
