Wimbledon 2020 Predictions and the best bets. Bet with EU-based betting company UNIBET for the best betting odds from SW19 in London.
World number one Novak Djokovic is the reigning champion after saving 2 match points in last year’s final against Roger Federer. Djokovic took his 17th Grand Slam title in Melbourne in January and is going for his 18th slam and 6th Wimbledon title this year. Roger Federer is set to make a comeback in the grass swing and is looking for his 21st Grand Slam and 9th Wimbledon title. Spanish world number two Rafa Nadal is looking for his 20th slam and 3rd Wimbledon title. A winner outside the big 3 is as always very unlikely. One tough prediction is if the 2020 Wimbledon championships will be held or cancelled due to the global pandemic and Covid-19 Corona virus.

WIMBLEDON OR NOT 2020?
The All England Lawn Tennis & Crocket Club is continuing to monitor and respond to the coronavirus situation on an active basis, working closely with the government and the relevant health authorities.
Following the government’s recommendation to individuals to avoid any non-essential social gatherings and work from home where possible, the AELTC has taken the decision to close the Wimbledon Museum and Tours, Shop, and Community Sports Ground, while the All England Club and Wimbledon Park Golf Club outdoor facilities will remain open to Members on a partial basis only for the time being.
At this time, we continue to plan for The Championships and the grass court season, and we intend to maintain the Estate with a limited team onsite, with the rest of our business operations taking place through remote working.
Richard Lewis CBE, Chief Executive of the AELTC, commented: “At the heart of our decision-making is our commitment to the health and safety of our Members, staff, and the public, and we are grateful to the government and public health authorities for their advice and support. While we continue to plan for The Championships at this time, it remains a continuously evolving situation and we will act responsibly, in the best interests of wider society. We thank all of our Members, staff, players, partners, contractors and the public for their patience and trust as we continue to navigate this unprecedented global challenge.”
The day-to-day operations of The Championships are led and conducted by the AELTC.

The All England Croquet Club was founded in July 1868 but being without a ground, the Club Croquet Championships were held at Crystal Palace in 1869. Late that year the Worple Road ground was secured and formally opened in 1870.
When in 1877 the inaugural Lawn Tennis Championship was held, the title of the Club was amended to The All England Croquet and Lawn Tennis Club. Gradually, interest in croquet declined and by the end of 1882 participation had ceased and Croquet was removed from the Club’s title. During 1896 the croquet players were invited to return. In 1899 the Club Championship was reinstated and Croquet was restored to the Club’s title, However, the upsurge in interest did not last long and after the 1904 Championship the game faded again, although the Club retained the same title.
Croquet was not provided for when the Club moved to its present Church Road ground, and was first played on 7 September 1953 when a match was arranged with the Croquet Association to mark Coronation Year.
From 1957 to 2007, the croquet lawn (not full-size) was situated at the southern end of the Grounds, alongside the Church Road boundary fence. The Club Croquet Championship was reintroduced together with a Handicap singles event in 1960 and in recent years a golf croquet event was started. In the autumn of 2007 a new full-size lawn was created in the Southlands College ground, which was opened on 19 April 2008 by Professor Bernard Neal, President of the Croquet Association. Professor Neal was the Club champion 38 times between 1963 and 2005. David Godfree has acted as Hon. Secretary for the Croquet section since 1975.
The Grounds are owned by the All England Lawn Tennis Ground plc and consist of 18 grass courts (including Centre Court and No.1 Court), eight American Clay courts and five indoor courts, two Greenset Velvelux and three Greenset Trophy. In Aorangi Park, there are 20 grass courts for practice before and during The Championships and two green acrylic courts. The total area, including the Club’s car parks, covers over 42 acres.
Apart from the grass courts, the courts are used all year round by the Club members and LTA-sponsored players. The grass courts are in play from May to September (except Centre Court and other Show Courts which are used only for The Championships). The courts are lent to a number of clubs and organisations, mainly of a national character, for the staging of various events.
The area north of the Centre Court became known as Aorangi Park after the Club purchased the 11 acres from John Barker Ltd. of Kensington in 1967 and subsequently granted a lease to the New Zealand Sports and Social Club. Aorangi, meaning ‘Cloud in the Sky’, is the Maori name for Mount Cook.
