Wimbledon 2015 – Tale Of The Fortnight

Living up to the high expectation that always follows a tournament of such prestige, the Wimbledon fortnight was a roller-coaster of excitement, despair, adrenaline and achievements. Things have been a little quiet over here at The Tennis Obsessed since the ride kicked off, and that’s because I’ve been constantly busy elsewhere! Here, you can catch up on my takes and features from the two weeks of tennis at SW19…

In “Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Searching For A Shooting Star”, I took a look at Jo’s career to date, his highs and lows of the present, and how important Wimbledon potentially was for his future.

At the beginning of the tournament, one potential match grabbed the attention of the tennis world – and that match was, of course, the Serena versus Venus fourth round. After their first round matches, I previewed whether the possibility could become a reality.

“Rafa And Serena – No Pain, No Gain” was probably my favourite piece of the fortnight. Here, I looked at the first week circumstances each endured, what made them similar, and what set them apart. The article is still completely relevant, and eyes what their experiences mean for the rest of the season, and beyond…

Did you miss the drama during Tsonga’s third round duel with big-serving Ivo Karlovic? Look no further. Here is everything you need to know about one of the biggest controversies of this year’s championships. Had this one incident had a different outcome, the fate of the whole tournament could have changed…

Still wondering about what happened between Serena Williams and Sascha Bajin? I don’t have the answers, but I did take a look back at the history of one of tennis’ most adorable duos, and reflected on the effect it had on Serena’s three-set battle with Bajin’s new charge: Victoria Azarenka.

I had Three Big Questions for Roger Federer as he headed into his semifinal versus home-hope Murray. The legend slayed them all.

Garbine Muguruza has been on the rise for some time, and played a stunning match to take down former-finalist Agnieszka Radwanska in the penultimate round of Wimbledon. But despite her individuality, the victory had her displaying eerie similarities to another WTA star

The ‘Serena Slam’ became Serena’s for a second time, as the 20-time Grand Slam champion turned 21. Decorated, talented and near-invincible, here are my 6 Takeaways From Serena’s Wimbledon.

And last, but not least, the rematch of last year’s final topped the viewings for this year’s tournament. After the world numbers one and two – Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer – squared off, I compiled a list of 9 Takeaways From The Wimbledon Final!
