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.
