Wimbledon 2013, it starts in June and as always is a great tournament for British Tennis fans in particular to look forward too, this year the home grown talent is sure to have the bookies sweating, okay everyone will be betting on Andy Murray but don’t forget the girls, we have an exciting crop of young talent coming through, the main contenders are:
Heather Watson, the current UK No1 and ranked 49 in the world, she surprised the tennis world when she won her first WTA singles title at the Japanese Open, she became the first British female to win a WTA singles title in 24 years.
Laura Robson, current UK No2 ranked 53rd in the world, Laura had a fantastic 2012, winning a Silver Medal in the mixed doubles with Andy Murray at the London Olympics, fans will be looking for great things from the girl whose confidence now seems sky.
Two female outsiders who are on the up are Anna Keothavong, a Lacotian born British Tennis player ranked 143 in the world and a real outside bet. The other British female in contention is Johanna Konta, born in Australia who she represented before becoming a British Citizen. Her career has suffered from injuries but we believe she can push on and become a challenger for the top spots.
