2013 MIAMI TENNIS TOURNAMENT

On Monday 20th June starts the 125th edition of the famous and most prestigious major tournament Wimbledon. The courts of All England Club in south west London are ready for two weeks of non-stop tennis of the highest level. The women’s singles tournament begins with 32 pairs of tennis players facing each other in day one of the first round, and there are some very interesting names that are going to enter the courts.

The last year’s runner-up Vera Zvonareva from Russia is going to be part of the opening match on No. 1 Court. She is facing the young Alison Riske from USA. This is the second participation of the American in the tournament since her debut last year in the tournament. She was knocked out of the tournament in the first round and this time around her chances to continue in the second round of The Championship don’t look too good especially when at the other end of the net is the second best from last year.

Another very interesting player begins her tournament today and that is the five-times Wimbledon champion Venus Williams. The older of the Williams sister was recovering from a serious injury until not so long ago and the British Open is her first big challenge since returning to courts. She is facing Akgul Amanmuradova from Uzbekistan, so Venus probably won’t have any troubles reaching the second round of the tournament but we will see her fitness level.

Another interesting match that is going to be played on Centre Court in Day 1 of the first round, is the match between former French Open winner Franceska Sciavone and once semi-finalist at All England Club courts Jelena Dokic. Although on paper this match looks very interesting it all depend from the form which Dokic currently has.

Her best days are way behind her and she might not be the challenger that is going to stop Sciavone on grass courts.

Last year semi-finalist Tsvetana Pironkova and Petra Kvitova also have matches today. The Bulgarian Pironkova is facing Giorgi from Italy while the Czech Kvitova is up against Alexa Glatch from USA.

The first day of the Wimbledon Tennis Championship is offering great spectacles in the women’s singles tournament. And who knows there are might be some early upsets on the courts of All England Club in south west London.

Tennis has long been a popular sport around the world for players to travel and put their skills against the other players in the world. There are a number of tournaments in the tennis world that provide players the opportunity to travel to different countries to show off their skills. While there are a number of tournaments that give this opportunity, there are some tournaments that are doubtlessly more important to win than other tournaments in the year. In tennis there are 4 tournaments specifically that are well known as the biggest tournaments of the year.

 

The tournaments that everyone talks about in the tennis world include the US Open, Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon.

The tournament that most players want to win at some point in their career is Wimbledon.

 

Wimbledon is played on a hard court and the players have to be ready for a very fast game. This makes for a very exciting game to watch for the fans as they get to see the biggest hitters make their opponents run all over the court. This is the type of tournament that a hard hitting player can make a run in and take out some of the best players in the world.

 

While it is true that there are opportunities for some players to dominate the competition, there are certainly a few players that seem to win this tournament repeatedly. In 1974, the tournament was played in London, England in the United Kingdom. This was the 88th tournament of its kind.

 

The champions of the tournament certainly had to go through a lot on their way to winning.

The tournament is split up into several different divisions. The most popular and exciting of all of the divisions is the Men’s singles division.
