History of this prestigious tournament goes all the way back to 1877 when the first ever men's tournament took place in Wimbledon. That year, Spencer Gore turned up victorious after overcoming twenty two other competitors. Since then, Wimbledon has become one of the major annual events on tennis calendar and has been the predecessor of other major contests like Australian Open, French Open as well as U.S Open. Back in 1877, Wimbledon was held merely as a garden party and today it attracts thousands of tennis fanatics in attendance from different parts of the world. Apart from witnessing it live, it enjoys having worldwide viewership as it is broadcasted on television and radio stations internationally.
Every year, the tournament takes place two weeks after the Queen's Club Championships on a Monday that falls between 20th and 26th June. The Queen's Club Championship serves as a men's warm up tournament for Wimbledon and so does the Gerry Weber Open among few other important warm up tournaments that are held before Wimbledon. Beginning on Monday and concluding on Sunday, Wimbledon Championship lasts for fourteen days. During that period five main events, five junior events and five invitation events take place. No events are scheduled for the Middle Sunday as that serves as the rest day; however events have taken place on Middle Sunday on a couple of occasions due to rain. In 2009, the center court had the addition of retractable roof to prevent the loss of play time due to rain.
Wimbledon is also the only major tennis contest that is still played on grass courts. Other grand slam events feature synthetic or manmade surfaces. Wimbledon tournament is preceded by Australian Open and French Open, and is followed by U.S Open later on. Each year Wimbledon attracts biggest tennis names from the world battling for the trophy. The upcoming edition of all the Singles, Doubles, and Mixed Doubles events are not going to be any less exciting than the previous editions. So brace yourselves for an adrenaline filled tennis action this summer that you will remember for a long time.
