Founded 141 years ago this summer Wimbledon was born. Prepare your wardrobe for another fantastic month of tennis here in the United Kingdom with the much anticipated Wimbledon tournament on our doorstep. Do not worry though; Northern Threads has some of the most famous brands that relate and were born from tennis including Polo Ralph Lauren; the official outfitters of Wimbledon since 2006 clothing everyone from the umpires to the linesmen and the ball boys and girls. Their classic polo shirts and plimsolls fit right in with tennis heritage.
Wimbledon may be quintessentially British but a lot of European stars have received glory on centre court; one of these famous individuals include Rene Lacoste which we later got the giant French fashion label Lacoste from. Their court master trainer remains an absolute classic on and off court and a piece of history we are proud to sell.
Not forgetting our own national hero’s who we mention last but certainly not least is the three times winner and a legend amongst British subculture Fred Perry. His polo shirts, tennis shorts and harrington jackets are forever a classic and the laurel wreath will forever remain an icon worldwide.
Will Nadal manage to push through the past couple years injury worries with his staggered performances upon return and cause an upset?
A good number of tennis punters are hoping that Roger would repeat his Australian open performance at Wimbledon. The Swiss ace also became the second ever player in the open era to lift a Grand Slam title without dropping a set at the Wimbledon 2017. That’s really not a bad achievement for a player who would turn 37 this year, and is rapidly approaching the final stages of his career.
He had lost the throne to Rafael Nadal Novak Djokovic on many occasions in the past decade, however he is back to his peak level now. But the big question is – can Roger Federer win a historic ninth Wimbledon title in 2018? We think so.
Predicitions for the Womans singles at Wimbledon can only be Serena Williams who will equal Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand slams and we personally think Serena will retire once she has conquered this mark and breached 25 Grand slams.
