Wimbledon is one of the most prestigious competitions in all of sports, the tournament was being played throughout this week, and it has come to its exciting conclusion. Wimbledon is one of the four Grand Slam tournaments of professional tennis, and the oldest of the group. During this tournament hundreds of men and women compete for the chance to bring home the title, but this year’s tournament ended with some familiar faces on the championship side. Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic managed to raise the trophies in their respective singles divisions after defeating formidable opponents in the finals and throughout the tournament. Wimbledon was full of excitement, as fan favorites played strong games and several new faces burst their way into the world of tennis by taking sets from the game’s best. There were several amazing moments in this tournament, from the unforgettable matchup of the Williams sisters, to the tenacious play of hometown favorite, Andy Murray, in his losing effort, but there were two moments that caught my eye and have ranked as the best of the tourney. The first of my favorite moments was when Serena Williams won the final set of the championship match, she was so shocked at how quickly it ended that it seemed like the victory didn’t actually register until about five minutes later. The other moment of the tournament that really stuck with me was the men’s championship match, while Djokovic won this match, it seemed like Federer was making every single point a battle. This tournament was extremely entertaining from start to finish. Tennis may not be the most popular sport in America, but with the stellar play that went on at Wimbledon, I’m sure the upcoming U.S. Open will surely bring in a large crowd of new fans.
