Wimbledon awaiting its winners

With Wimbledon approaching its conclusion, after almost two weeks of scintillating tennis, the men’s semi-final has drawn together Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal for the first time since the latter won an epic final in 2008. Now with a combined age of 70, 38 Grand Slam and 10 Wimbledon titles between them, and both playing as well as ever, it promises to be every bit as exciting as their previous encounter. By comparison, on the other side of the draw, Novak Djokovic against Roberto Bautista Agut seems a somewhat mundane affair. Meanwhile, following her enthralling mixed doubles run with Andy Murray, Serena Williams has bludgeoned her way through to the women’s final, where she will meet Simona Halep. However, British interest continues, as the brilliant Andy Lapthorne has reached the final in both singles and doubles in the men’s quad wheelchair events, whilst Gordon Reid with Alfie Hewett in the men’s and Jordanne Whiley in the women’s have all reached their respective wheelchair doubles semi-finals. It’s looking like a vintage Wimbledon weekend.
