The 2019 Wimbledon Championships was a Grand Slam tennis tournament that took place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London, United Kingdom. The main tournament began on Monday 1 July 2019 and finished on Sunday 14 July 2019.[1]

The defending Gentlemen's singles champion Novak Djokovic retained his title, while the defending Ladies' singles champion Angelique Kerber lost in the second round to Lauren Davis. Simona Halep won the Ladies' Singles title. This was the first Grand Slam tournament where both singles titles were won by players born in the Balkans.[2]

This was the first edition of the tournament to feature a standard tie break in the final set when the score in the set was 12 games all. The winner was the first player or pair to reach seven points whilst leading by two or more points or, in the case of a 6-6 point score, to establish a subsequent lead of two points. Henri Kontinen and John Peers won the first such tie break played in Wimbledon history, defeating Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury in a third round men's doubles match.[3] In men's singles, the only such match was the final in which Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer, in what was also the longest final in tournament history.[4]

In the Women's Singles, there are 16 qualifiers from 128 entrants, an increase from 12 qualifiers from 96 entrants. Doubles qualifying has been eliminated as a result. The change brings the qualification for the Women's Singles into line with that for the Men's Singles, which remains unchanged.[5]

Tournament[edit]

The 2019 Wimbledon Championships was the 133rd edition of the tournament and was held at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London.

The tournament was run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and was included in the 2019 ATP Tour and the 2019 WTA Tour calendars under the Grand Slam category. The tournament consisted of men's (singles and doubles), women's (singles and doubles), mixed doubles, boys (under 18 – singles and doubles) and girls (under 18 – singles and doubles), which was also a part of the Grade A category of tournaments for under 18, and singles & doubles events for men's and women's wheelchair tennis players as part of the UNIQLO Tour under the Grand Slam category, also hosting singles and doubles events for wheelchair quad tennis for the first time.[6]

The tournament was played only on grass courts; main draw matches were played at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Wimbledon. Qualifying matches were played, from Monday 24 June to Thursday 27 June 2019, at the Bank of England Sports Ground, Roehampton. The Tennis Sub-Committee met to decide wild card entries on 17 June.
