Wimbledon 2019: Survival Of The British

Wimbledon 2019: Survival Of The British

Johanna Konta Carries The Brits

Centre Court gives Johanna Konta the buzz she needs as the home crowd brings support for their fellow Briton. Konta continues to fly the England flag as she carries team GB through to the Wimbledon quarter finals, being the only Briton left in the Wimbledon singles.

The Brit took a comeback victory over former champion Petra Kvitová yesterday with a 6-2 6-4 in the last 2 rounds, seeing her head into the quarter finals where she will face Strýcová in Wimbledon’s Centre Court. Britain’s hoping for a Konta final as she continues to lead the game.

The British tennis player had recently returned from the French Open after reaching the semi-finals but sadly lost to Vondroušová. Who then later lost her final hopes as Australian, Ashleigh Barty, took the French Open 2019 trophy.

It seems as though Konta is bringing the same energy to Wimbledon as she did in the French Open and hopefully more, as she secured her quarter finals with the semi-finals in eyesight. If the Briton reaches the semi finals it would be her second at Wimbledon since 2017. With the Brits backing her and the support on centre court, Konta needs a semi-final victory.

#SerAndy OR #Murena

With the mixed doubled getting underway, Andy Murray represents the Brits with Serena Williams. The duo headed into the second round of the mixed doubles after beating Alexa Guarachi and Andreas Mies with two strong straight sets.

The second round of mixed doubles sees #SerAndy head to head against Serena’s fellow American Raquel Atawo and French Fabrice Martin. With Murray being the last of the Brits in the mixed doubles, there is sure to be a crowd behind #SerAndy at Wimbledon as they play on the centre court.

The mixed doubles victory will certainly enlighten Murray as his day didn’t start on a good patch after his exit in the men’s doubles with partner Pierre Hugues Herbert. Now Murray has his time to put his all into the mixed doubles, hoping for more than he got in the men’s doubles.

Both players make their comeback to tennis after Williams had given birth and will be playing the most games at Wimbledon in five months. Murray had also been out the game for around 23 months after he had undergone surgery earlier in the year. But what a mark both are making as they set a strong presence in the first round. Showing the duo being strong contenders to head into the mixed doubles final.

It’s Serena Williams and Andy Murray with the brilliant partnership in the mixed doubles. But what do you prefer #SerAndy or #Murena?
