Just one week after the final of the AEGON Championship at the Queen’s Club, the Wimbledon tennis begins. One of the biggest differences between the two tournaments is that the AEGON Championship is for men only, whereas Wimbledon has welcomed women players as well. There is a ladies championship that runs parallel to the men’s event. In recent years it has increased in popularity and closed the gap between itself and the men’s tournament.
Anyone in the least bit interested in tennis will have his or her favourite player. They will be hoping their hero will win the tournament they are playing in, and will be thrilled when they do.
