Star Sports Select celebrates Wimbledon's return with new promo

Wimbledon 2021 will commence from 28 June

KOLKATA: Star Sports Select, the official broadcaster of the premier Grand Slam event has launched a promo #GreatnessResumes that brings to the fore how the toughest setbacks lead to the greatest comeback. Wimbledon 2021 will be live and exclusive on Star Sports Select from 28 June- 11 July, 3:30 PM onwards.

Wimbledon was cancelled last year, for the first time since the Second World War, due to the pandemic. However, this year’s men’s and women’s singles final will be played with full capacity crowds in attendance on Centre Court, while the tournament will begin with 50 per cent capacity across the grounds, the AELTC announced.

Star and Disney India sports head Sanjog Gupta said, “Wimbledon is the most revered of all Grand Slams with rich history and strong appeal amongst fans. Through #GreatnessResumes, we look to further the excitement for the return of this iconic championship after two years. Fans are eagerly anticipating the return of Federer, Serena, and Djokovic along with the new generation of top players, to the grass at AELTC. And with history at stake, the occasion has assumed greater proportions, which fans can experience on SS Select."

Federer, who left the clay courts at Paris midway, will hope to make a strong return, and extend his winning record at Wimbledon. World No. three Rafael Nadal pulled out of The Championships and the following Tokyo Olympics to prolong his career. The Spaniard, who lost to eventual champion Novak Djokovic at the French Open, said that that the two-week gap between Roland Garros and Wimbledon "didn't make it easier on my body to recuperate after the always demanding clay-court season".

Nadal’s absence now puts the World No. one Serbian in a prime position to notch up another title-winning run at London. Djokovic will draw level with Federer and Rafael Nadal on 20 Grand Slam singles titles if he retains his Wimbledon crown.

Meanwhile, in the women’s field, veteran Serena Williams along with World No. one Ashleigh Barty will be the cynosure of all eyes. World No. three Simona Halep, and two-time champion in London, Petra Kvitova will also be of key interest to fans as they could pose tough competition to their opponents. In a big delight for Indian tennis fans, superstar Sania Mirza, who has not played on tour since the WTA 1000 Dubai Open in March, returns to action in the doubles event.
