With Wimbledon starting on Monday, it’s always useful to check the win-loss records of different players at the event. Who finds their feet on grass? Who has two left feet? That kind of thing.
The tables below list each player in order of their draw in the tournament, accompanied by their win-loss records in the main draw (i.e. not in any qualifying matches, if played). The data below is drawn from 2012 onwards, mostly to retain some relevance. Rafael Nadal, for example, is has a career win-loss record of 39-8 at Wimbledon, but only 4-3 in the last 3 years. Despite being a 2-time champ, I consider 4-3 to be more relevant in determining his prospects.
Check out your favourite players and notice how some players have a strong predilection for playing at Wimbledon as opposed to other slams (Janowicz, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Mannarino) while the reverse holds true for the likes of Pablo Andujar, Matt Ebden and Paolo Lorenzi, the only 3 to lose all of their matches in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
Best of luck to the 3 making their slam debuts – Hyeon Chung, Liam Broady, and Alexander Zverev.
