Whale Presents a little Wimbeldon Re-Cap From Last Year

Last year’s champions, from the men’s side, include Novak Djokovic in the singles and Mike Bryan and Jack Sock for the doubles. Over on the women’s side, the reigning singles champion is Angelique Kerber with Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova as the doubles champions. Perhaps one of the greatest men’s singles player, Rafael Nadal is coming off his 11th championship at the French Open and looking for his second win at Wimbledon, the last coming in 2010. Much anticipation has been surrounding whether or not Nadal will be 100 percent this coming July. After a month-long break, it has been confirmed that the 33-year-old Spaniard will be shooting for yet another major championship at Wimbledon. Nadal, Djokovic, and Federer make up some of the best picks to take home the men’s singles championship at Wimbledon, but there is still room for an unlikely underdog to make a run at the title. On the women’s side, Angelique Kerber will try to defend her title but will have tough competition with Serena Williams, Venus Williams, and Gabriñe Muguruza looking to steal it from the 31-year-old German.
