The 2019 Wimbledon Championships is a Grand Slam tennis tournament that is scheduled to take place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom. The main tournament is due to begin on Monday 1 July 2019 and finish on Sunday 14 July 2019.[1] It will be the first version of the tournament to feature a tie break at 12 all in the final set.[2]

The 2019 Championships are set to be the final tournament taken part in by former World No. 1 Andy Murray, who announced his intention to retire from tennis following a lengthy battle with hip problems. Making the announcement at a press conference prior to the 2019 Australian Open, Murray stated that it would be the likely "end point" of a professional career spanning 14 years.[3]
