The magic of Wimbledon 2019 captured with the best shots & photos from an incredible first week
The all important second week of Wimbledon kicks off today with ‘Manic Monday’ but the first week of tennis at Wimbledon 2019 was truly incredible. Here’s the pick of the best action from the first 6 days of tennis at SW19.
Wimbledon 2019 has lived up to all our expectations and there’s still a full week to go. To get you in the mood for the second week of action here’s our pick of the best photos and shots so far.
Felix Auger-Aliassime: The young star of the game shone brightly until being knocked out in the 3rd round
Britain’s Harriet Dart kept the home crowds happy until losing to No.1 seed Ash Barty of Australia
Novak Djokovic looked in superior form as he cruised through to the second week of Wimbledon 2019. He now faces Ugo Humber of France
The big story so far is 15 year old American sensation Cori ‘Coco’ Gauff, She knocked out Venus Williams in the first round then won her next two matches.
Gauff now faces former world No.1 Simona Halep. Halep will have to be fully focussed to see of the young prodigy
This year Nick Kyrgios had a renewed commitment to try his hardest and he nearly knocked out Rafa Nadal. It took 4 sets, 2 tiebreaks and some high intensity tennis from Nadal to overcome the talented Australian
The greatest mixed doubles partnership ever? Quite possibly as Andy Murray teamed up with Serena Williams. They won their first match easily and are favourites for the title
Rafa Nadal hasn’t won Wimbledon for 9 years but is looking extremely focussed this year. Can the slow courts help him to victory?

Diving volleys, impossible gets and slice winners to save match point…
