Since then, the All England Club in Wimbledon, London has been hosting the Wimbledon championships for some of the greatest athletes from around the world.

Few of the greatest tennis players in history have exhibited their tennis mastery in the Wimbledon championships and have won the title over and over and over again.

The Swiss tennis icon, Roger Federer, has arguably been the best on the grass court to date. The Maestro with the 20 Grand Slam titles, won 8 of them at Wimbledon. In 2008, Federer had a record 65-match grass-court winning streak.

Pete Sampras

Petros Sampras, the Pistol Pete, marked his territory on the grass surface back in the 90s and won the Wimbledon title for several consecutive years. He won the Wimbledon title 7 times in total (1993-95, 1997-2000) and he displayed his prowess on the surface, especially with his overpowering serves and remarkable movement through the court.
