The Sports Archives – Wimbledon in Numbers!

The Wimbledon Championship or simply Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and it’s often considered as the most prestigious. It’s been held at the All England Club in Wimbledon in London since 1877. The tournament takes places over two weeks in late June and early July. The tournament culminates with the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s singles final. Wimbledon traditions include a very strict dress code for competitors and Royal patronage.

Guoman Hotels have prepared an illustrated infographic with some of the most interesting facts about Wimbledon.  The infographic includes information about most wins, longest matches, most aces and other moments from the tournament history. Some of the key facts illustrated in the infographic include Martina Navratilova winning Wimbledon a record nine times, the longest match in the history of the tournament (11 hours and 5 minutes!), most aces, fastest serve by Taylor Dent in 2010, and other facts related to very traditional strawberries and cream as well as Pimms.

Guoman Hotels is an exclusive collection of deluxe hotels in London. Whilst each of the hotels is different with its own unique identity and style, each provides the same high levels of comfort and service to its guests.
