One of the biggest tennis events of the year, the 2018 Wimbledon Championships finals, is here.

That’s right — Wimbledon, one of the big four tournaments in the tennis calendar, is almost over. The tournament has already provided a number of notable scalps, with 2017 Wimbledon men’s champion Roger Federer eliminated at the quarterfinal stage on Wednesday, leaving the door wide open for his arch rival Rafa Nadal to challenge him as the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) in tennis.

Serena Williams marches on in the women’s bracket and, after dumping Julia Görges out of the tournament’s semifinal on Thursday, the American athlete will meet Angelique Kerber in the women’s final on Saturday.

The men’s and women’s finals brings together the finest tennis players the sport has to offer, and these matches will be contested at the prestigious All England Club in London — the same venue it has been held at since 1877.

Why should I watch?

The rivalry between clay king Rafa Nadal and grass master Roger Federer is amongst the most gripping in all of sport, greater perhaps than the competition between NBA greats Steph Curry and LeBron James and soccer stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

But Federer, who won the 2018 Australian Open and was the pre-tournament favourite to win a 9th Wimbledon title, has already been dumped out of the tournament — so the competition has suddenly opened up.

Nadal is one of four athletes remaining in the competition who may well prosper from Federer’s absence, but first he must navigate a way to the final. Standing in his way is semifinal opponent Novak Djokovic, leaving the winner with a final match against Federer’s conqueror Kevin Anderson, or John Isner.
