The WIMBLEDON that was

•    Wimbledon is Murray’s second Grand Slam title after he won the 2012 US Open.

•    It’s the 36th time a British has won the Wimbledon singles title, more than any other nation.

•    Murray is the most successful British man in terms of Grand Slam match wins with 113, ahead of Fred Perry on 106.

•    Bryan Bros: Only about 1 per cent of live births result in monozygotic twins. Only 25 per cent of monozygotic twins are “mirror” or opposite feature twins.

“When he wins he is British. When he loses he is Scottish.” That just about aptly sums up England’s love hate relationship with the man they once called “Choker” because of his monotonous regularity in failing to make the grade in big matches.

Having become the first man since Fred Perry, in 1936, to win Wimbledon, Andy Murray is the new heartthrob. “First in Britain, second in the world” that’s his position in the world of tennis today.  And of-course he is Olympic gold medalist. Incidentally, Murray isn’t the first Scot to win the men’s singles title. That credit goes to Harold Mahony. Mahony created history in 1896, wearing long white trousers unlike Murray who won wearing shorts.


Bryan brothers

The “mirror twins” a k a Bryan brothers, clinched the Golden Slam at the 2013 Wimbledon doubles. With this, they became the first pair to hold all four grand-slam tournament titles and the Olympic title simultaneously. With this, the Bryan Brothers have held the World No. 1 doubles ranking jointly for an incredible 319 weeks, the longest in the doubles history. They hold an 8 times record in finishing the ATP year-end as number 1 doubles team. Also they recorded their Open Era record 800th match win by defeating Philipp Marx and Florin Mergea in the quarterfinals.

Age, what age

Age matters – only to the mind. So proved the 42-year old Japanese, Date-Krumm, the oldest woman to reach the third round at Wimbledon since the Open era.  In the process she became the second-oldest woman to reach the third round of any Grand Slam. To get a perspective of Date-Krumm’s achievement recall that she last advanced to the third round at Wimbledon in 1996, when she lost in the semifinal to Steffi Graf. 17 years after Date-Krumm reached the semifinals at Wimbledon and 11 years after Williams won her maiden title there, the two finally played each other for the first time.
