Just one week after the final of the AEGON Championship at the Queen’s Club, the Wimbledon tennis begins. One of the biggest differences between the two tournaments is that the AEGON Championship is for men only, whereas Wimbledon has welcomed women players as well. There is a ladies championship that runs parallel to the men’s event. In recent years it has increased in popularity and closed the gap between itself and the men’s tournament.
Anyone in the least bit interested in tennis will have his or her favourite player. They will be hoping their hero will win the tournament they are playing in, and will be thrilled when they do. There are some competitions that raise more interest than others, the AEGON Championships being one of them.
The dates are set. The tickets are on sale. It’s the one time of year where even people with only a passing interest in tennis will book time off work to ensure they don’t miss a match. Its popularity in its home nation has grown even more with the success of Andy Murray, who now provides native fans with a real contender.
The only grass court tennis grand slam, Wimbledon, takes place between 2nd-15th July 2018 at the All England Club. The players and spectators savour the sporting action, the iconic faces, memories and history and with luck, excellent weather.
Whilst we may have bid farewell to the tennis season in the UK and the top flight players have set to work in the US and Canadian ATP and WTA tournaments, that’s no reason to forget tennis for the foreseeable future. You should be considering your options for 2018.
2017 was a peculiar year for the Aegon Tennis Championships as several of the big name players like Milos Raonic, Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray were knocked out of the tournament on the Tuesday. The finalists, Marin Cilic and Feliciano Lopez, both having seen a Queen’s Club final before, were left to fight through a tough match which Lopez eventually won. Jamie Murray won the men’s doubles with Bruno Soares.
