Wimbledon 2024 Jared  

Wimbledon Day 1

It is July and the Championships are upon us. Get your strawberries and cream ready and lets enjoy some grass court tennis for the next 2 weeks. Who will come out on top at this years Wimbledon Championships?

It has already been mayhem as Azarenka, Sabalenka, Murray, Koepfer, Carreno Busta, Moutet, Alexandrova, Cocciaretto all pulled out before their 1st round matches.
The rule below has been applied if you had one of the above.
“If you have picked a player and he/she ends up giving a walkover in the 1st round Only then the player next in the rankings will be automatically subbed in for you.”

Sunday night was epic as the entries just continued to come in all the way up until the last minute. We eventually ended up just over 80 entries with 82. I have to say a huge thank you to all who have entered and I will do my best to give you the best experience over the next 2 weeks of jam pack action.

Prizes up for grabs this time round:

  • 1st Place – R1200
  • 2nd Place – R600
  • 3rd Place – R400
  • 4th Place – R300
  • 5th Place – R200
  • 6th Place – R100
  • Last Place – The legendary wooden spoon

Here are the most picked players (includes subs) for this year’s Wimbledon Championships:

  1. Sinner – 49 picks
  2. Alcaraz – 44 picks
  3. De Minaur – 29 picks
  4. Tsitsipas – 25 picks
  5. Paul – 24 picks

  1. Rybakina – 49 picks
  2. Swiatek – 48 picks
  3. Gauff – 34 picks
  4. Jabeur – 27 picks
  5. Keys – 21 picks

Overall there were 52 different Male Picks (I think thats the most we have ever had) and there were 49 different Ladies Picks.

No onto the action. The 1st day is done and dusted and already some teams are wishing they entered differently. The big names which have fallen at the first hurdle are Andreeva who was picked by 18 teams, Muchova who was picked by 8 teams and Pliskova who was picked by 11 teams.

Onto the 1st leaderboard of Wimbledon 2024 and our leader is ‘Fine Whines’ who scored an impressive 38 points on the opening day. ‘Be-Yawn Bored’ sits just a point behind in 2nd. ‘Miss Hits’ sit 3 points behind the leader and rounds out our top 3 for day 1. Then we have a 3 way tie for 4th between ‘Left is Best’, ‘Pam the Slam’ and ‘Sinner’s Injuries’. 2 of them continuing from where they left off at the French Open.

Our current wooden spoon holder is ‘Sinister Left’ who only had 1 player play on day 1, Muchova, and she lost in straight sets and so they have yet to get off the mark in this one.
