Wimbledon memories: records and numbers from the beginning to Roger Federer. For the third time in history, the tournament was canceled, but at the All England Club, we have lived unforgettable tennis moments and great records.

In the beginning it was the two World Wars that marred the tournament, this year the global pandemic forced the Church Road board to cancel the event. Thanks to an insurance taken out in 2003 against pandemics, however, Wimbledon will not suffer economic damage.

Talking about numbers and records, Roger Federer is the record-man of titles of the Wimbledon men’s singles. In fact, the Swiss Maestro won the Championships 8 times, surpassing, in 2017, the previous record he shared with William Renshaw and Pete Sampras.

William Renshaw holds the record of titles won consecutively in the men’s singles: 6, from 1881 to 1886. Todd Woodbridge holds the record of titles won in men’s doubles; 9, of which 6 along with Mark Woodforde and three along with Jonas Björkman.

Woodbridge and Woodforde, with brothers Reginald Doherty and Lawrance Doherty, hold the record of consecutive titles won in men’s doubles, 5. Owen Davidson, Ken Fletcher and Vic Seixas have the record of titles won in the mixed doubles, 4.

Williams Renshaw is the most successful men’s player at Wimbledon, with a total of 14 titles won: 7 in men’s singles, 7 in men’s doubles. Martina Navratilova holds two important records; with 9 titles she is the most successful tennis player in women’s singles, and she is also the player who has won more titles consecutively in women’s singles: 6, from 1982 to 1987.

John Isner and Nicolas Mahut played the longest match ever at Wimbledon (11 hours 5 minutes), while in 2008 Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer played the longest final ever at Church Road, with 4 hours 48 minutes. In 2001 Goran Ivanisevic won the tournament starting as a wild card, and today he is the player with the lowest ranking to win, with his 125th positions in the ATP ranking.

Boris Becker is the youngest winner of men’s singles (17 years and 227 days, in 1985) while Arthur Gore is the oldest winner (41 years and 182 days, in 1909). Lottie Dod is the youngest winner of the women’s singles (15 years and 285 days, in 1887) while Charlotte Cooper Sterry is the oldest winner in women’s singles (37 years and 282 days, in 1908).

The USA is the most successful nation in both men’s singles (33 titles) and women’s singles (50 titles), with a total of 83 titles won at Wimbledon. This year we should be content to relive the best moments, the best matches, the statistics, the curiosities and much other news about the Championships: but our mind goes already to 2021, with the hope of returning to live the emotions that only Wimbledon can to guarantee.
