With the French Open in the rear-view mirror, we decided to use a Wall Street approach to assess the tennis landscape heading into Wimbledon.
If tennis players were stocks, potential investors would analyze their recent results and their performance trends to determine their market value.
The most important factor in determining a player's market value is his or her current status. However, the probability that a player's value will decline or rise in the short term (the rest of 2013) or over the long term (the next three years) is also significant to investors. With four of the 10 players listed in this article being 31 years old, future possibilities become significant issues.
Simply put, the two questions being addressed are: Who are the most highly valued players at the moment, and is their value expected to change in the near future?
We offer our analysis of 10 of the top players, with advice on whether investors should buy or sell stock in that player in the short term and long term.
