Wimbledon 2011Wimbledon commences each June, and represents the third in four annual Grand Slam tennis tournaments, along with the Australian Open, French Open and US Open.

The 2023 Wimbledon Championships ran from Monday, July 3 to Sunday, July 16.

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.

Marketa Vondrousova won the 2023 Wimbledon women’s singles title, defeating Ons Jabeur 6-4, 6-4 in the final. Carlos Alcaraz did likewise in the men’s singles in a thrilling five-setter against Novak Djokovic, 1-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 to end the champion’s run of four consecutive Wimbledon titles.
