Out of the four majors, perhaps the most illustrious tennis tournament is Wimbledon in England, which was the first ever Grand Slam championship.
Professional male tennis players play in the ATP tour while female tennis players participate in the WTA tour.
Some of the greatest ever tennis players from both genders include Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg, Rod Laver, Margaret Court, Martina Hingis, Martina Navratilova, and present superstars Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
