After missing out in 2020, Wimbledon has lived upto its expectation this year and it is down to the final 2 matches of The Championships. The Women’s and the Men’s final will be played this weekend.
The Ladies’ Singles Final will be played on Saturday, July 10 while the Gentlemen’s Singles Final will be played on Sunday, July 11. Both the finals will start at 2 p.m. local time.
Wimbledon 2021 Ladies’ Singles Final
The women’s singles final will be played on July 10 between top seed Ashleigh Barty and eighth seed Karolina Pliskova. Both Barty and Pliskova will be competing in their first Wimbledon final. Before this tournament, neither of them had previously got past the fourth round at the All England Club.
Barty has been in amazing form all fortnight and hasn’t dropped a set en route the final. She has beaten the likes of Katerina Siniakova, French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova, countrywoman Ajla Tomljanovic and 2018 champion Angelique Kerber.
Pliskova too has found her lost form at Wimbledon. She was coming with first round loses at Berlin and Eastbourne and hence, nobody gave her a chance to go deep at Wimbledon. But the Czech has defeated the likes of Ludmilla Samsonova, Viktorija Golubic, and second seed Aryna Sabalenka to reach the final.
Wimbledon 2021 Gentlemen’s Singles Final
The men’s singles final will be played on July 11 between top seed Novak Djokovic and seventh seed Matteo Berrettini. Djokovic will be competing in his 30th grand slam final while it will be the first final for Berrettini.
Djokovic came into the tournament as the overwhelming favorite to win it and he has delivered every single time. He has dropped just one set all tournament, in the first round to Jack Draper and since then he has been absolutely amazing in his wins against Kevin Anderson, Denis Kudla, Cristian Garin, Marton and Fucsovics and a hard fought straight sets win over Denis Shapovalov.
Berrettini too has been in the form of his life. After winning Queen’s, he is currently riding on a 11-match winning streak and would want to extend it to 12 by winning his first grand slam title. He too has beaten some tricky opponents en route the final- Felix Auger Aliassime in the quarterfinals and Hubert Hurkacz in the semis.
