At age 32, Novak Djokovic is the second oldest, seeded Wimbledon men’s singles players started since the Open in 1968, when the Grand Slam tournament allowed professional players to compete with amateurs. He trails only Roger Federer, the record set last year at age 36. 2019 Federer is the number two seed. Immediately behind him is Rafael Nadal, at the age of 33. The aging of elite tennis Grand Slam is not a brand new trend; Wimbledon has changed from 2013, more than 30 to seven the number-one seed had when a 31-year-old Serena Williams favorite was the singular event female to win. But this path is unique in the modern history of tennis. Between 1973 and 2013 there was not a single number one seed at Wimbledon over the age of 30. And the trend does not look much on the side to dissipate men. However, the draw of the women looks quite different. When the 23-year-old Australian Ashleigh Barty, the youngest seeded number one Caroline Wozniacki in 2011 as Seeding is, however, it is one thing. What matters is that the men’s singles trophy and the Venus Rosewater dish (assigned to the women’s singles champion), when the games will raise full.

His 2016 have won the champion of women in the modern history of the oldest Wimbledon. The next three oldest winner on the side of the women were Martina Navratilova (33 in 1990), Virginia Wade (32 in 1977) and Billie Jean King (1975 31), who had passed among the women set to get at least a decade younger as they. On the men’s side, only three players among the 30 never left Wimbledon champion Federer (35 in 2017), Djokovic (31 in 2018) and Rod Laver (30 in 1969). And one seed Laver registered as number. This year is a potential turning point in men and women’s sides. For men, into the record a profit from one of the top three seeded sample would be one of possibly the oldest Wimbledon singles oldest and set. On the women’s side, number two seed Naomi Osaka, 21, in the first round on the first but Barty on July 23 he was angry, the issue has taken. Let’s call it a wash for young people. Karolína plíšková and Kiki Bertens, the third and fourth seed or both 27 and both easily made from the first round. But so it has the 11 seed, Serena Williams, who at 37, would be the oldest Wimbledon champion for three years when she was going through with it.
