Tennis lawn players Novak Djokovic of Serbia and Roger Federer of Switzerland compete to win the Wimbledon finals for 2019. The stakes are high as the two rally for the men’s championship cup.

In the past, Djokovic emerged as champion during the final matches in 2014 and 2015. Fans of both sides have yet to see anything change.

The two players are victors in their own right. Novak Djokovic, now 32, has won several awards in his career. In 2010, he won the semi-finals of Wimbledon and finals for the US Open. A year later, Djokovic became the Wimbledon champion, triumphing against 43 matches. In the years 2014, 2015 and 2018, he also became the Wimbledon champion. Roger Federer, on the other hand, holds the greatest number of winning championships in the Grand Slam’s men’s singles and the Wimbledon championships (eight titles in all).

The determination to win is partly motivated by the large take-home prize money to be received by the champion, which amounts to US$2.95 million. This figure is higher than the US$2.83 million in 2018. For the runner-up, the prize to be awarded is at US$1.48 million.

The semi-finalist also will receive a prize about half the amount from the runner-up at US$738,850. The quarter-finalist will be awarded US$369,420. Meanwhile, other competitors will receive the following awards, namely US$221,150 for the round of 16; US$139,480 for the round of 32; US$90,470 for the round of 64; and US$56,540 for the series of 128.
