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.
For many years it was the men’s tennis that was the main attraction at Wimbledon but now with so many brilliant women players, ladies tennis has come into its own. Some of the more famous ladies hold amazing records, such as winning the ladies title 6 times in a row. Martina Navratilova achieved this from 1982 to 1987, although in total she was the victor 9 times.
Other not to be forgotten names include Billie Jean King, Evonne Goolagong, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Virginia Wade and of course the Williams sisters, Venus and Serena. Players travel from all over the world to take part in what is considered to be one of the most important tennis tournaments. Currently Americans having won it more times than any other country. It is the only grand slam event still played on grass.
