Serena Williams is set to compete and will be playing for her eighth Wimbledon crown with her last win being in 2016.

Australia’s own world No. 1, Ash Barty will be leading the charge and will be joined by Ajla Tomljanovic and Sam Stosur for the women’s side.

  1. I have to correct the wording here ,no doubt this is from Nines publicity department , Djokovic has not won 2 grand slams this year ,he has won 2 majors ,if he wins all 4 majors this year that’s the correct use of the term Grand Slam ,it has been this way forever and a day.

    1. That may be technically true but it’s pedantic. The four are referred to as the Grand Slams individually too and players records refer to how many grand slams they’ve won – that being individual tournaments. Nobody refers to them as Majors in tennis.
