This year Wimbledon had some surprises, and a historic moment.
To start things off, Roger Federer won a very tough 5 set match against Rafael Nadal 7-6 (7), 4-6, 7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-2. This victory gave Federer 5 Wimbledon championships in a row! Wow, I didn’t really think anyone would ever tie Bjorn Borg’s record of winning 5 straight Wimbledons. Pretty amazing.
On the woman’s side, Venus Williams was the lowest ranked woman to win a Wimbledon championship. Venus defeated Marion Bartoli of France 6-4, 6-1. This was also Williams’ fourth championship victory at Wimbledon.
Both Venus and Roger are young enough to win quite a few more titles at Wimbeldon. It will be interesting to see if they do.
