Hard times

Short history

In 1877, the first Lawn Tennis Championships were organised, open only to English men. At the end of the 19th century, the tournament had grown into an international & popular championship.

In 1922, the new stadium at Church Road was built, where Wimbledon is still held nowadays. Wimbledon is the oldest and most prestigious of the 4 Grand Slam tournaments and has always been played on grasscourts, the only Grand Slam with the same underground throughout all the years.

Since 1974, 16 different players have won Wimbledon at least once, which is the shortest roll of honour of all 4 Grand Slam tournaments.
