"May the net always be friendly.
May your serve always be true.
May your strokes always be quicker
than the shots hit back to you.
May your backhand be a weapon.
May your forehand always spin.
May all the shots you aim at lines
always be called 'in.'"
~ A Blessing for a Tennis Player, Daniel Mark
Anyone for tennis? The Championships, Wimbledon, the oldest tennis tournament in the world and regarded by many as the most prestigious, has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London, since 1877 on outdoor grass courts. Wimbledon traditions include a strict dress code for competitors, Royal patronage, and the serving of strawberries and cream! Of the three main courts in the tournament, Centre Court, First Court, and Second Court, Second Court is known as the "Graveyard of Champions"! Many highly seeded players have been eliminated there during early rounds including Ilie Năstase, John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Martina Hingis, Venus Williams, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova. This year Wimbledon runs from June 28th to July 11th. Game. Set. Match! 🎾🎾🎾
The Championships, commonly known as Wimbledon, is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and one of the most prestigious. It has been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon, London since 1877.
One of of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments, including the Australian Open, the French Open and the US Open, Wimbledon is the only major tournament still played on grass.
Modern tennis has been around since the mid 1800s, when two friends Harry Gem and Augurio Perera developed the game on Perera’s lawn in England. However, its origins can be traced back to twelfth century France, where it was played by hitting the ball with the hands instead of a racket. King Louis X was a devotee of this game, then called jeu de paume (“game of the palm”).
