The tournament kicked off with some memorable upsets — Cori “Coco” Gauff beat her idol, Venus Williams while Naomi Osaka, the No. 2 ranked female tennis player in the world, lost in straight sets against Yulia Putintseva in the first round. On Friday, Rafael Nadal lost to Federer in an intense semifinals match. But big name players are still in the running. On the men’s side, Djokovic and Federer have held on tight to their No. 1 and No. 2 seeds, and will face off for the men’s singles trophy on July 14.
On the women’s side, Halep defeated Serena Williams to win her first Wimbledon title in the women’s singles finals on July 13. Although Serena Williams had been battling a persistent knee injury earlier this year, she pushed through to victory throughout the tournament, but fell short of winning her career 24th Grand Slam singles title to tie Margaret Court’s record.
The remaining players will face off on the courts at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London. Among those who could watch the final matches are members of the royal family. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is patron of Wimbledon and watched England’s Harriet Dart battle U.S. player Christina McHale. Meghan, Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance on July 4 to watch her friend Williams defeat Slovenia’s Kaja Juvan in a second-round match.
The 142-year-old tournament is one of four Grand Slam tournaments, along with the U.S. Open, the French Open, and the Australian Open. Final matches will be played on the famed Centre Court.
