Learn about Wimbledon
Founded in 1877 by the All England Club and the British Lawn Tennis Association, Wimbledon is the oldest and most prestigious open tennis tournament in the world. I believe you will also notice that among the four Grand Slams mentioned at the beginning of this article, only Wimbledon is named not after the country but after the city and its venue, Wimbledon.
In 1868, the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club was founded, which at that time was still a private club. Ten years later, Major Walter Clopton Wingfield devised a sport called Lawn Tennis (the rules are basically similar to those of today's tennis) and added it to the club, which was renamed The All England Croquet & Lawn Tennis Club. The first Wimbledon was opened. Unlike today, however, there was only one competition, Gentlemen's Singles. Ladies' Singles, Gentlemen's Doubles, Ladies' Doubles and Mixed Doubles were added later.
Green and purple are the traditional colors of Wimbledon, and it is also the only tennis tournament where the color of the tennis players' clothing is required: all players must wear white sportswear as a sign of respect for the royal family. There is also a dress code for spectators: men are not allowed to wear shorts, and women are not allowed to wear hats (because they will block the view of the spectators behind them). In addition, women are referred to by their surname as "Miss" or "Mrs" throughout the event (e.g. when the head judge announces the score), while men are referred to by their surname.
The trophy for the Wimbledon men's singles champion, called the Challenger Cup, and the trophy for the women's singles champion, a plate, are called Rosewater Dish. Since the Open era, Sampras (U.S.) and Federer (Switzerland) have each won seven Wimbledon titles, the most number of male winners; for the women, the most winners are Navnadinova, nine times.
