Analysis of the draw for Yonex All England Badminton Championships 2014
If Rafael Nadal is to win a third Wimbledon crown this year, he must overturn a recent poor record on grass. The Spaniard has not saluted on grass since defeating Thomaz Bellucci in the first round of Wimbledon in Many have argued that he should not have played so soon after triumphing yet again at Roland Garros. The King of Clay heads to London lacking match practice, and if he is to win a 15th Grand Slam title he must solve his recent grass court woes.
He is set to be seeded second behind Novak Djokovic, as Wimbledon do not strictly follow the ATP rankings when they determine their seedings. The verdict : A big call, but he will end his grass court woes and win a third title at Wimbledon. After falling short yet again in his quest to complete his Grand Slam set, Novak Djokovic will hope to move on from French Open disappointment by triumphing for a second time at the All England Club. This year the Serb has won Masters events at Indian Wells, Miami and Rome, the latter two of which were won by defeating Rafael Nadal in the final.
Again Djokovic, who is set to become a father later this year, has chosen not to play a lead-up grass court event before Wimbledon, where despite his current world ranking of number two, he will be seeded first on the basis of his current good record at Wimbledon in comparison to Nadal. Champion in , he lost his title defence to Roger Federer twelve months later, and last year was on the wrong end of history as Andy Murray became the first British male winner at the All England Club in 77 years.
The Serb is defending 1, rankings points from last year and the only way he can gain fresh rankings points is by winning the title and hoping that Rafael Nadal loses before the semi-finals. Nadal is only ahead of Djokovic in the rankings by only points, but he can earn fresh rankings points this year, having lost in the first round twelve months ago. The verdict : Expect Djokovic to make another deep run at the All England Club this year, possibly as far as the final. After a disappointing fourth-round exit at the French Open to Ernests Gulbis, Federer has wasted little time in adjusting to his favourite part of the season, the grass court swing.
