Pre-tournament predictions: who will win Wimbledon?

At the start of the year tennis writers from the Daily Express put together their predictions for the 2022 season. For Wimbledon, tennis trends writer Yasmin Syed said Novak Djokovic and Ajla Tomljanovic would be crowned men’s and women’s singles champions respectively, while senior sports reporter Stuart Ballard tipped Djokovic and Emma Raducanu. Sports writer Neil McLeman said Andy Murray could “make a run” at Wimbledon.

TennisProGuru has been running a readers’ poll for the winners of Wimbledon. In the men’s, Djokovic had 45% of the vote ahead of the tournament. Rafel Nadal (32%) and Matteo Berrettini (7%) were also tipped. In the women’s Iga Swiatek had 54% of the votes, ahead of Simona Halep (6%) and Coco Gauff (5%).

Former player Todd Woodbridge believes fellow Australian Nick Kyrgios could be a serious threat this year. “He is a legitimate force” and has the chance to “go deep” at Wimbledon, he said on Nine’s Sports Sunday. “It’ll depend on his draw. That’s significant.”
