The Championships Wimbledon, tennis
A very British tournament.
Of the four Grand Slam tournaments of the tennis circuit, Wimbledon is generally considered to be the most prestigious, and winning Wimbledon is many a player's greatest dream.
The matches are played on traditional grass courts, a surface which means the players must have special training and which can prove a challenge particularly for players who have just finished the clay season.
Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are some of the great figures in tennis who have won the coveted title several times in the men's section, while Martina Navratilova, Elizabeth Ryan, Billie Jean King and the Williams sisters are just some of the superstars to have won the women's tournament.
This quintessentially English tournament promises a fantastic atmosphere. Strawberries and cream all round!
