London, Jul 10 (EFE).- Marija Cicak will be the first woman to umpire a Wimbledon men’s singles final.
The 43-year Croatian, a WTA golden badge holder, is officiating in her 15th Wimbledon championships, having been in charge of big matches such as the women’s singles and doubles finals at All England Club in 2014 and 2017 respectively.
Besides many WTA matches, she umpired in other events such as the Davis Cup, the Billie Jean King Cup, formerly the Federation Cup, and the Olympic final in Rio 2016.
Now she is set to add to this long list the Wimbledon men’s singles final pitting Serbia’s Novak Djokovic against Matteo Berrettini of Italy on Sunday. EFE
