2017 ATP Grand Slam:The Championships (Wimbledon)
July 06, 2017 by Marc Jerbs

The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London, England will host the third Grand Slam tournament of the 2017 season, The Championships. This is the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament simply known as Wimbledon.

The Championships is the only major tournament played on grass after the Australian Open shifted to hardcourt as its playing surface in 1988. Defending men's singles champion and local hero Andy Murray will play to defend his title while women's singles champion Serena Williams has skipped the tournament due to her pregnancy.

On Thursday, the feature matches in the 2nd round of the men's and women's singles competition will feature second seed Novak Djokovic against Adam Pavlasek, third seed Roger Federer meets Dusan Lajovic, Magdalena Rybarikova faces third seed Karolina Pliskova and top seed Angelique Kerber against Kirsten Flipkens.

The tennis handicappers have installed Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Karolina Pliskova and Angelique Kerber as the favorites to beat the respective 2nd round opponents at Wimbledon.
