Many people view Manic Monday – Day 7 at Wimbledon – as the greatest day in the entire tennis calendar.
Yes, seasoned tennis-lovers often pick it as the most special day of all – ahead of the finals at Wimbledon, Roland Garros, Flushing Meadows or Melbourne.
Better than any tennis day, anywhere on the planet.
What, we hear you say? How can that be? After all, on the face of it, Manic Monday is just the half-way stage in a tournament where the biggest drama is yet to come.
Depends on how you look at it. Depends what you’re looking for. Or, more importantly, depends WHO you’re looking for.
Because on Manic Monday, the odds are heavily stacked in your favour, meaning you’re highly likely to find him or her…the star of your dreams.
Yes, Manic Monday pretty much guarantees that whoever your favourite player is, from Roger Federer to Jo Konta, he or she will be playing that day.
Unless your most loved tennis superstar has suffered the shock of an early-round knockout.
You’ll be able to watch him or her on Centre Court or Court One at the All England Club on Manic Monday.
That’s because ALL fourth-round (or round-of-16) matches in the men’s and women’s singles are played on the SAME DAY.
That’s what makes Wimbledon so unique!
No wonder they call it Manic Monday! So many glittering stars to fit onto the show courts. How do they find the time? It’s crazy!
And it’s also one good reason why Wimbledon sees fit to take the previous day – the middle Sunday – off. They know what’s coming. And it just adds to the burning anticipation!
Buy tickets for Centre Court AND Court One for that day and you will surely see the greatest players in action. You can switch courts at will, take in the very best of the drama – and have memories of your favourites to cherish forever.
Buy tickets to Centre Court OR Court One and you know you’ll still be treated to something very special indeed in superb surroundings, entertained by some of our sport’s true legends.
It’s almost hard to imagine so much excellence in one place at one time, isn’t it?
So let’s take a quick look at what Manic Monday had to offer at Wimbledon 2019:
Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer showed their respective power and grace with convincing victories on Manic Monday. Yet Jo Konta caused most excitement with a dramatic 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 win over two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, defying the predictions of many experts.
Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic marched on in style but the big story was the end of the dream for 15-year-old Coco Gauff. When she looks back, she will be able to console herself with the thought that her 3-6, 3-6 reverse happened against the eventual Ladies’ champion, Simona Halep.
It doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world. The sporting riches on offer on Manic Monday are truly mind-boggling.
See why some call it the greatest day of all? Would you like to be part of this unique day at Wimbledon 2020?
