Tennis Players Are Facing Anxiety At Wimbledon
Tennis Players Are Facing Anxiety At Wimbledon. The rankings of the professional tennis player are about setting an objective and fairing over a couple of times. Match wins are decided as per the points that tend to remain for the player’s record for a year or so. Some even say that tennis player records are somewhat like a currency.
Paula Badosa, No.3 in Wimbledon women’s rankings, said,” It is the most stressful and hectic thing about the job. We all keep thinking about the rankings all the time. No matter what the league is, we keep thinking, what if we win the game, or lose it. Will the spot remain with me or not?”.
The Grand Slam tournament at Wimbledon is also having similar levels of anxiety. No one is going to earn a spot in the ranking table. The reason is related to the war between Russia and Belarus over the war in Ukraine. Both the WTA women’s tour and ATP men’s tour decided to avoid responding to the ban on the All England Club.
Ons Jabeur Is Also Excited As Well As Anxious
Even winners like Ons Jabeur are also feeling multiple sets of emotions and anxiety issues. She is feeling excited about what has been achieved in the past. Now, she has reached the semifinals of her first Grand Slam. Other than that, she has even become the first Arab woman to reach such a milestone. Not only just money, but she has also moved closer to the trophy.
Jabeur mentioned that it is regrettable that there won’t be any points even after doing so well in the entire series. Jabeur is ranked 2nd and is going to face close friend Tatjana Maria in the Thursday semifinals. She also finds Tatjana in the same loop that won’t add up any points after a good run.
Maria is 103rd ranked and made a comeback after giving birth to her two babies. She has fared so well in the entire Wimbledon series and will be playing semi-finals. The players who did well a year ago are also not getting even a single chance to defend themselves. Novak Djokovic earned 2000 points for the 2021 championship and can simply drop off his hard-earned record in the next week. The old points of the athletes are going to disappear for almost every player and returning later can put on more pressure.
