Title: Wimbledon 2019
Post by: Olde Hornet on June 28, 2019, 06:43:33 AM
She looks like a younger Venus, unfortunately she get Venus in the first round - youngest versus oldest.  :(

Gauff makes history as youngest qualifier in Open era

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-06-27/gauff_makes_history_as_youngest_qualifier_in_open_era.html

What did 15-year-old Cori Gauff do the night before her final Wimbledon Qualifying round? She took a science test remotely at 11pm for her school back in Florida. She is rather confident she’ll get a ‘B’ on it.

It wasn’t the only test she passed within the last 24 hours. On Thursday afternoon, Gauff made history by becoming the youngest player in the Open era to reach the main draw at Wimbledon via Qualifying.

She did it in style too, taking out 21-year-old Belgian Greet Minnen 6-1, 6-1 in 55 minutes to lock down a spot in the ladies' singles.

Gauff was busy online-shopping for dresses for a gala when she got the call eight days ago that she had received a wild card for Roehampton.

Keep any eye out for this young brother from Canada

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-06-30/2019-06-30_new_faces_in_gentlemens_singles.html

Felix Auger-Aliassime (Canada)

As the youngest player to crack the top 25 since former Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt in 1999, Felix Auger-Aliassime is on a tear. A year ago, the Canadian was ranked outside the top 150 but a breakout 2019 has the 18-year-old poised to make a splash at SW19. Auger-Aliassime made his third tour final in Stuttgart leading in and went on to become the youngest semi-finalist at Queen’s in two decades, posting wins over the likes of Stefanos Tsitsipas, Nick Kyrgios and Grigor Dimitrov. Seeded No.19, he opens against compatriot Vasek Pospisil, a player he defeated at Indian Wells last year.

Teenager Gauff beats Williams in generation game

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-07-01/2019-07-01_williams_loses_generation_game_to_teenager.html

According to the advance billing, Venus Williams was set to face a 15-year-old schoolgirl in the first round at Wimbledon 2019, but on No.1 Court the anticipated gawky youngster was nowhere to be seen. Instead Cori Gauff was every inch an assured young woman from the moment she coolly strolled out on court ahead of the five-times Wimbledon champion, delivering a display of breathtaking poise against 39-year-old Williams to create an utterly sensational upset. The world No.313 nervelessly triumphed 6-4, 6-4 in 79 astounding minutes, breaking into tears in her moment of victory.

“This is the first time I ever cried after winning a match,” Gauff told the BBC as she left the court. “I never thought this would happen. I don’t know how to explain it. I’m literally living my dream. Not many people get to say that.

“I definitely had to tell myself to stay calm during the match. I never played on a court that’s so big. I had to remind myself that the lines are the same size as any other court. When we shook hand she told me congratulations and to keep going and good luck. I said ‘thank you for everything you’ve done’ – I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for her.”

Halep ends 15-year-old Gauff's magical Wimbledon run (https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/tennis/halep-ends-15-year-old-gauffs-magical-wimbledon-run/ar-AAE1yG6?ocid=spartanntp)

By CHRIS LEHOURITES

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Coco Gauff's unexpected but remarkable run at Wimbledon is over.
The 15-year-old American, who became the youngest player to qualify for Wimbledon's main draw in the professional era, lost to former No. 1 Simona Halep 6-3, 6-3 in the fourth round on Monday.

"I learned a lot," said Gauff, who is younger than many of the players in the junior competition at Wimbledon. "I learned how to play in front of a big crowd. I learned what it was like to be under pressure. I learned a lot and I'm really thankful for this experience."

Top seed Barty bows out

Australian world No.1 finds American Riske too hot to handle   :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-07-08/top_seed_barty_bows_out.html

Down the 'T' they all went: a first, a second, a third and then a fourth ace from Ashleigh Barty in her opening service game. But, with lawn tennis, as with almost everything else in life, it's not how you start but how you finish that matters. That game of aces brought the world No.1 little lasting pleasure - in fact, probably none at all - on the day she lost in the fourth round to an unseeded American, Alison Riske.

In reaching her first Grand Slam quarter-final, Riske ended Barty's 15-match, cross-Channel winning streak, which had brought her titles at Roland-Garros and the Edgbaston Priory Club. Riske also cut down the streak within the streak, of nine consecutive matches won in straight sets.

Naomi is Japanese-Haitian. She already has two grand-slam titles. And so called "Slo-Anne" already has a major. So what is the percentage of all female tennis players as far as winning a major title in their pro careers. To me, these players you love to hate on (due to their skin being a lil too dark for your tastes) have already had successful careers, more successful than 90 percent of all players who have played the game at that level. Grand slam titles, tour titles, endorsements etc. etc.

See, you tend to be shallow about your inherent intra-racism within the diaspora. You my guy, are a sad young "brotha". I really wish you would just kick rocks; oh ye champion of non-Africans. :tiptoe: :tiptoe:

Djokovic eases aside Bautista Agut to reach sixth final

https://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/news/articles/2019-07-12/djokovic_eases_aside_bautista_agut_to_reach_sixth_final.html

Novak Djokovic has brought Roberto Bautista Agut’s extended Wimbledon stag celebration to a halt, defeating the No.23 seed 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 to reach the final here for the sixth time. The engaged-to-be married Spaniard was scheduled to be marking the end of his bachelorhood days on Ibiza with half a dozen mates. Instead the merry band thronged Bautista Agut’s player box with the intention of making Centre Court the most decorous party venue in history. With two wins over Djokovic already in 2019, Bautista Agut had a fine old time as he tested the defending champion, but after two hours and 49 minutes, this particular bash was done.

Did it live up to its billing? Oh, yes. Was it as good as their 2008 Wimbledon final? No, but then again, that one was described as the greatest match ever played.

But did Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal do what they have been doing for the past 15 years and keep a worldwide audience enthralled from first ball till last? Oh, yes; a hundred times yes.

The two legends, GOATs, all-conquering champions – call them what you will – played the way that only they can, and only can against each other, for three hours and two minutes until Federer made his way into the final 7-6 (3), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Simona Halep played one of the matches of her life to beat Serena Williams 6-2, 6-2 to win the Ladies' Singles Championship on Centre Court in under an hour.

The Romanian fizzed around the court, keeping the ball in play and forcing errors from her more experienced opponent's racket. In two exhilirating sets, Halep made just three unforced errors. By contrast, Williams made 25.

Given their seedings - Halep is No.7, Williams No.11 - it could hardly be described as a shock result, but few expected the 23-time Grand Slam champion to be harried into so many mistakes in the opening set.

"Everyone was suffering," Novak Djokovic said after one of the great psychological thrillers on Centre Court. And yet, in matching Bjorn Borg's achievement of winning five Wimbledons, Djokovic revealed himself as the cyborg of the lawns.

How else to explain how he dealt with almost five hours of unspeakable tension? In his day, Borg was known for being an emotional flatliner, for remaining impossibly calm and poised in even the most trying of circumstances, such as playing against the ever-provocative John McEnroe. But you wonder whether Borg would have coped with this, a Wimbledon final that was decided with a tie-break at 12-12, not long after Djokovic had fended off Roger Federer's two Championships points.

Halep played the match of her life and Roger choked.

Congratulations to all winners and almost winners on a great 2019 The Championships, Wimbledon!   :bow: :clap: :bow:

The Racist came out in full force after Serena lost. BTW, I can't stand Chris Evert.

I thought I was the only one.  She got something large stuck up her lil rump regarding Venus and Serena. She is to tennis what racist arsed Johnny Miller is to golf. I stopped watching NBC and their Golf telecasts when his lumpy headed arse was on the air.

For tennis fans, the Federer-Djokovic final was an epic struggle between legends. For readers of David Epstein's new book, "Range," it was a test case in a simmering war between specialists and generalists.
