2012 Wimbleton

Jul 09, 2012

Roger Federer set a few world records in tennis this weekend after defeating the hometown favorite Andy Murray in the Wimbleton Finals in 4 sets. Even though he has slowed down winning grand slams since Novak Djokovic entered the #1 ranking, it's safe to say that Roger is going to break most of the Tennis World records.

Roger has tied the record for the most wins at Wimbleton with 7 titles since 2003 and lucky number 7 came in the rain. Andy took the first set 6-4, but the rain stopped his momentum and Roger took over. It was clear that Roger's experience in the rain was vastly superior over Andy, as Roger was very controlled on the slick and slippery grass courts, while Andy had two big falls. 

Homecourt Advantage?

Even though Andy was considered the hometown favorite at Wimbleton, he is actually from Glaskow, Scotland. So I'm not really sure why everyone was saying he had the home advantage. I guess all the fueds between the English and Scottish people have died down since the 1800s, but there were probably more Roger fans than there were Andy fans at Wimbleton.

Sell Your Car, Get Your Ticket!

There was a rumor that tickets were being sold for $20,000 dollars a seat to see the Wimbleton final this year. That's probably a new World record for most expensive ticket ever sold at a sports' event!

Tennis Titans

Andy is only 25 years old, but he has seem to run into a road block full of tennis titans that he cannot get through. Roger, Nokak and Rafael Nadal are all between the ages of 25-30 and it doesn't look like Andy will ever be able to beat one of them in a Grand Slam Championship.

Have Your Say

Roger has now tied Pete Sampras' records for most Grand Slam titles and most weeks with the #1 ranking. As he is only 30 years old, he should easily add to his totals and become the greatest tennis player ever! What do you think? Let us know in the comments below...
