History Roland Garros tennis tournament

The Roland Garros tennis tournament has again become history. Tennis season is in the phase of grass tournaments, culminating in the Grand Slam at Wimbledon.Last year, Venus Williams in women’s and Roger Federer in men is still the best. I’m already beniewd that will be the new champ.

History

Wimbledon was the first one ever held in the years 1877 and was only available to English players. Even more specifically just for male tennis player. The tournament did not have the name of Wimbledon but was called Lawn Tennis Championships. It was organized by the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. From 1884 men and women also twice played any. Gradually, Wimbledon has become a full-fledged international tennis tournament. In 1922 a new tennis courts built on Church Road which had seating for 14,000 spectators. As a result, it was observed a marked increase in popularity. Today, Wimbledon has become the largest and most prestigious grästurneringen in the year. It is certain that Wimbledon has the most prize money at the players: namely 11.28271 million pounds. Furthermore, the traditional British character correctly on the tournament. By, for example, all players must wear a white gown and massive consume strawberries with whipped cream. Wimbledon but it also has its own positioning system are often criticised. This system is not prepared on the basis of the official world, but on the basis of arbitrary assessment of performance. In 1905 was the first victory for a non-British. It was the American may Sutton, and two years later the same thing happened with men. When the Australian Norman Brookes was the best.

Worth knowing

  • The tournament takes place in June/July and lasts for two weeks. In singles making 128 players participated, both women and men. Is also a doubles tournament for women, men and mixed games. In addition, the juniors show up at Wimbledon.
  • The important matches are played on Centre Court and Court One. Court Two has been nicknamed ‘ The Graveyard received because it often hooggeranschikte players are struck by the paper less gods.
  • Under one of the 14 days, the school young people come and watch free.
  • Cup for the winner in the men, and the scale of the winner of the women, each year with a full ceremony presented by the Duchess of Kent and her husband, the Duke of Kent. In recent years the Duke usually only because of his wife’s health.
  • Players are required to wear white clothes, that’s why Andre Agassi refused to play a couple of years.
  • The United States Sunday, the tradition which is not played.
  • In 2007 most of the rain breaks were taken.
  • Also in 2007 was the first time the Hawk-Eye system used on Centre Court and Court One.
  • Previously it was habit to leave Centre Court to make a bow to the Royal Box. Now it is done only when the Royal audience is present.
  • Wimbledon is the last Grand Slam tournament, the prize money for men and women was the same. In 1973, the U.S. Open did this already in 2001 followed the Australian Open 2007 and Roland Garros and Wimbledon. There was a lot of discussion about this surgery, because the men play three sets won and the crease but to two, with the result that manne is often much longer on the job.

Among men over the past five years, where Wimbledon was won by Roger Federer. May this year maybe someone break his rule?
In the women’s, Williams sisters in recent years often party with between a victory for Maria Sharapova ntje by Amélie Mauresmo. So many contenders in the women of the year…
