Compared with other Grand Slam tournaments like Australian Open, French Open and US Open, Wimbledon has something special about it, it is the oldest, it is of green grass, and as the Swiss tennis player Roger Federer said: the tradition.
Since he first played in Wimbledon in 1998 as a junior tennis player, it has been more than 20 years, during which Roger Federer grew into major and mature player, became world No.1.
But Wimbledon is special for the Swiss player, it witnessed his most Glorious victories: It was here, the young Roger Federer defeated the then World No.1 Peter Sampras in 2001, then became champion himself in 2003, then 2004, then again and again, until he made history by being the first ever to win 8 Wimbledon championship.
Now it is 2019, and Roger Federer has left the quarter-final behind him. Will he make the final, and who will he encounter: his old opponent the Spaniard Rafael Nadal, or the now World No.1 tennis player Novak Djokovic? or someone unexpected?
Will he create history again, on this grass court which has been very kind to him?
We wish him the best luck!
