The Wimbledon Championships - Statistics & Facts

The Championships in Wimbledon are simply referred to as Wimbledon all over the world. Wimbledon is the oldest existing tennis tournament. Since 1877, it has been taking place at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London. It is one of the four Grand Slam tournaments, also known as The Majors, representing the most prestigious tennis events worldwide. Just like all other major sports leagues, The Majors had to deal with safety restrictions brought on by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which led to some rescheduling and, because of how bad the situation was in England in 2020, to the first cancellation of Wimbledon since World War II. The following year, the tournament was back on and celebrated its 135th anniversary as well as the 100th anniversary for the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) Centre Court.

Wimbledon 2022

In 2022, the Championships were held over the course of 14 days from June 27 to July 10 and expected to welcome an attendance of roughly 500 thousand visitors over the two weeks. Ticket prices ranged from the cheapest ground passes between eight and 27 British pounds and court tickets from 46 to 240 British pounds. The prize money for this year's winners in men's and women's singles was two million British pounds and 1.05 million for the runners-up. Leading into the tournament, Rafael Nadal won both the Australian Open and the French Open. The latter was the Spaniard's 22nd Grand Slam tournament win and added to his record of most men's major singles wins. Despite battling through to the semi finals, Nadal ultimately had to pull out of Wimbledon 2022 and the men's singles title was won by Novak Djokovic. The women's singles was won by Elena Rybakina, marking the player's first Grand Slam title.

Legends of Wimbledon

Martina Navratilova holds the record for most matches played at Wimbledon, which goes hand in hand with most singles matches played and most singles match wins (including men).
