It’s time for the Wimbledon Championships 2021 and all the top players of the world assemble in London. Although there are many absentees this year, the tournament will be lit up with the presence of Nick Kyrgios. The Australian player will be seen after a long period as he was last seen during the Australian Open earlier. 

The Wimbledon Championships has been the event in which Nick Kyrgios was first revealed to the world. Not many can forget his match against two-time champion Rafael Nadal during the 2014 season. The youngster created headlines that season, knocking off the Spaniard in four sets.

Usually, prior to the third Grand Slam event in the calendar year, the Australian player competed at the Queen’s Championships but this year he didn’t do so. He was facing a problem with his shoulder and was unable to execute a service according to his liking. Nonetheless, it is a positive sign for the event to have the presence of a player of Kyrgios’ magnitude.

Superstars to grace the Championships this year

The Wimbledon Championships 2021 begins on the 28th of June and will end on the 11th of July. Besides Nick, superstars like Roger Federer and Serena Williams will grace this event. World No. 1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic will be the man to beat since he has been in tremendous form lately. 

Players are looking forward to competing at the All England Club especially since it was the only Grand Slam event that was canceled last year due to the pandemic. It will be interesting to see how the Australian player and the others perform during the fortnight.
