Wimbledon quiz


With just a matter of weeks away from the start of this year's Wimbledon, why not whet your appetite with a few challenging questions about the oldest tennis tournament in the world.

Being the only tennis major played on grass, Wimbledon is always a championship that is eagerly anticipated. Starting in 1877, Wimbledon is considered the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world.

Whether you're sitting at home watching on TV, on Murray mound eating strawberries and ice-cream or amongst the 15,000 lucky enough to be in the Centre Court, the tournament is one of the highlights on the sporting calendar.

Last year's male singles final saw Andy Murray almost become the first Brit to win the competition since Fred Perry in 1936. Will he go one better this time around?

The Williams sisters have dominated the ladies singles over the past decade. The sisters have shared 10 Wimbledon Grand-slams between them since 2000.

The pair shared glory last year winning the women's double with Serena winning the women's singles.

Roger Federer is aiming to break the record of most gentlemen's singles titles after his victory last year put him joint with William Renshaw and Pete Sampras with seven.
