Visited SW19 in 2007 to watch the Gentlemen’s final on Centre Court. This was the last year the Centre Court didn’t have a roof. In fact the upper court surround (bordering) which typically lines the top part of the Centre Court had also been removed making the court feel very open on what was a very hot, sunny day.
The Gentlemen’s final was won by Roger Federer for the fifth consecutive time, a feat only before achieved in the Open Era by Björn Borg. It was the third longest men’s singles final of all time at 3 hours and 45 minutes.
Venus Williams claimed the Ladies’ title by defeating Frenchwoman Marion Bartoli, a surprise finalist who had defeated world number one at the time Justine Henin.
For the first time in twenty years, the Championships saw a home player win a senior title as Jamie Murray won the mixed doubles with Serbian partner Jelena Janković.
