Wimbledon 2008 – The Wimbledon Championship began in 1877 and is the oldest tennis championship in the world (four years older than the US Open). Wimbledon is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments and is considered the most important and prestige one. Over the last 20 years the courts of the All England Club have been graced by some of the sport’s greatest and most exciting players. In 1980 Bjorn Borg of Sweden became the first player to win the Gentlemen’s Singles five times in succession since the 1880s. In 1985, Boris Becker became the youngest player, the first unseeded player and the first German to win the Gentlemen’s Singles. In 1987 Martina Navratilova of the United States became the first player to win the Ladies’ Singles six times in succession and in 1990 attained the all-time record of nine victories in the event. Pete Sampras of the United States registered his seventh win in 2000. In 2001, Goran Ivanisevic became the first wildcard to win the Gentlemen’s Singles. In 2007 Roger Federer equaled Borg’s record of 5 consecutive victories. Will Roger brake Bjorn’s record and win 6 consecutive victories? Will Serena win her third or maybe it shall be Venus that will win her fifth?
