The 2021 Wimbledon Championships ran from Monday, June 28 to Sunday, July 11.
Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam tournament still played on grass courts. All the players, even the clay courters, speak reverently of the tradition and “special” atmosphere of Wimbledon.
Played at the All England Club in the London suburb of Wimbledon, it is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, having begun in 1877.
Taking place over two weeks in late June and early July, Wimbledon culminates with the gentlemen’s singles final, scheduled for the second Sunday. In addition to being the oldest tennis tournament, Wimbledon is also seen as the most prestigious.
