Wimbledon Stadium

Every year, in Wimbledon (an urban quarter in London) will be a trial of strength between the best tennis players of the world, called The Wimbledon Championships which are the most famous, popular and in addition the oldest one. Moreover it is part of the Grand Slam which is a tennis tournament consisting of four single championships (furthermore: Australien/French/US Open). The special and interessting thing about that is the fact that it is the only Grand Slam tournament which is played on grass. But this is not the only thing, which seems to be traditional because Wimbledon traditions include the eating of strawberries and cream, drinking Pimms spritzers, royal patronage and a strict white dress code for competitors. In 1985 our german tennis player Boris Becker became the youngest ever male champion of Wimbledon with the age of believe it or not 17 and is also the first german player who gain this apparently impossible mission. If you want to know more about him and Wimbledon, you can check this video out.
