The only grass tournament in the grand slam calendar, Wimbledon remains unique in atmosphere and tradition. The new centre court roof, opened in 2009, was rarely called into action as the Sun shone for the majority of the tournament.
Roger Federer and Andy Roddick contested a gladiatorial final in 2009, Federer finally defeating a heroic Roddick in five sets. Serena Williams defeated Venus in straight sets to take her 11th Grand Slam title and third Wimbledon triumph.
