Wimbledon Week 1: Opportunities Earned

8Jul

Maybe you've heard that Wimbledon 2018 has been full of shocking upsets, but just how shocking are they?

In the words of tennis' poet laureate, Venus Williams, their places in the draw are not accidental, but "an opportunity earned." We comb through the draw, look at Federer's decision to leave Nike for Uniqlo, and take a look at Marion Bartoli and Nick Kyrgios' tiff.
