The Top Male Competitors
The Association of Tennis Professionals comprises numerous male athletes that throughout history have made notable accomplishments. Below we have analyzed the three most significant players in the ATP. We are focusing on the 2019 International Season that just ended and how their standings will affect the 2020 Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Championship. Our top three players include Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
- Novak Djokovic – The first ATP competitor we are focusing on is Novak Djokovic. He’s coming off a formidable season, where two additional Grand Slams were acquired. This extended to Novak winning the master’s 1000s twice and obtaining the 2019 Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Championship victory. He defeated Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to acquire these various titles. Novak became the number one ranked professional in the ATP, holding that rank for 275 weeks. His talents throughout 2019 extend to winning the FedEx ATP Head2Head series. This puts Novak Djokovic at an 88% chance to win the 2020 Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Championship.
- Roger Federer – This ATP athlete is the oldest out of the three, standing at 38 years of age. However, this doesn’t mean he isn’t capable of competing at the highest level. Roger placed 2nd in the Association of Tennis Professionals for 2019. This came after he acquired four titles in the ATP international circuit. However, the last year of the decade proved to be challenging for Federer. He lost to Novak Djokovic at the 2019 Wimbledon’s, this being his first loss in a prolonged period. However, he’s still considered the second highest-rated to win the Wimbledon 2020 Gentlemen’s Championship, with most analysts determining he will compete against Novak Djokovic.
- Rafael Nadal – Participating in the ATP Finals for 2020, it’s unknown how Rafael Nadal will compete against Feder and Djokovic. This competitor has been named the number one player five times in the past. Even though he won fifty-eight of the sixty-five matches experienced this year, Rafael was outpaced by Novak Djokovic for the first-place position. The 2019 season became worse when this Spaniard failed to reach the final events of Acapulco and Wimbledon. Subsequently, he’s been dropped to the third-best prediction.
Reviewing over the evidence during the 2019 ATP International Season, the most likely to win the Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Single’s Championship will be Novak Djokovic. The requirement for Rafael Nadal to outpace Djokovic will require 65 consecutive wins throughout the 2020 season, which would put him in first place contention. However, considering that Nadal has experienced a noticeable decline in 2019, we anticipate that Novak Djokovic will compete against Roger Federer for a second consecutive year at Wimbledon.
