It’s time for the short grass court season, however, simultaneously it is time for one of the most prestigious events in sporting history, the Wimbledon Championships 2021. This is the first-ever Grand Slam event played and it goes back to the 19th century. The All England Club was established in the year 1877.

Players such as Dominic Thiem, Andrey Rublev, Daniil Medvedev, and Stefanos Tsitsipas can cause upsets and go deep into the event. Amongst all these players, not many have impressed with their performances at the Grand Slam event played on grass. However, since the last edition of the Championships, these players have improved their games to a great extent.

It is a matter of time for them to cross the final hurdle after Medvedev and Tsitsipas were finalists at the previous two Majors.
