The 2011 Wimbledon Championships took place at the All England Lawn Tennis Club and the International Tennis Federation.

In the professional tournaments there were two new singles champions for the first time since 2002: Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitová. By reaching the final Djokovic also claimed the world number one in the ATP rankings from Rafael Nadal, while Kvitová became the first Grand Slam event winner born in the 1990s. In the doubles the Bryan brothers claimed the men's title for a second time, and equalled the overall Grand Slam tournament record of 11 set by the Woodies, Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge. In the women's doubles Katarina Srebotnik won her first ladies major title after making four previous major finals. Srebotnik won alongside Květa Peschke. This was Peschke's first major title. In the mixed doubles Jürgen Melzer won his second major title, and first in the mixed doubles as he partnered Iveta Benešová to her first major title. In total, players from the Czech Republic (Kvitová, Peschke, and Benešová) were champions in three of the five main tour events in the tournament.

In the junior tournaments both the boys and girls singles titles were won by Australians. Mate Pavić won their maiden junior Grand Slam tournament titles. The girls doubles title was claimed by Canadian Eugenie Bouchard and American Grace Min.

In the wheelchair events Esther Vergeer and Sharon Walraven retained their doubles title. This was Vergeer's third successive win at the championships and meant that she was still unbeaten at Wimbledon. In the men's event Maikel Scheffers and Ronald Vink completed a team career Grand Slam, as they won the only title they had previously failed to win as a team.

The legends events titles were won by the teams of: Lindsay Davenport and Martina Hingis, the Dutch pair of Jacco Eltingh and Paul Haarhuis and the Australian pair of Pat Cash and Mark Woodforde.

Tournament

2011 Wimbledon champions

The 125th edition of the tournament saw two new courts opened. A new showcourt, Court No. 3, and a new Court No. 4 opened on the first day of the championships. Court No. 3 was opened by The Duke of Kent, President of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, who unveiled a plaque marking the occasion.[1] A total of 19 courts were used for competition play and a further 22 for practice. The capacity of the grounds was thus increased by 1,000 to 38,500.[2][3]

On a commercial front, Sony have became a sponsor of the championships for the first time, while Jacob's Creek and Lavazza replaced Blossom Hill and Nescafe as official wine and coffee of the tournament.[4] Qualifying for all events took place at the Bank of England Sports Ground, Roehampton.[3] The grass was of the Perennial Ryegrass type and cut to 8mm.[5]

125th anniversary

The 2011 championships were the 125th to be held since 1877, excluding the years 1915–1918 and 1940–1945, when the event was not held due to the two world wars. To mark the occasion a number of special events and activities occurred. Blue Peter broadcast a special programme looking at the championships, past, present and future, which was screened on the second Monday of the tournament. Four 30-minute documentaries charting the history of the championships were commissioned. A new exhibition known as the queue was held in the All England Club's Museum celebrating the people who queue each year for tickets to the championship.[6] In addition, a range of licensed merchandise featuring the "125" logo was released; the ball boy and ball girl uniforms had this logo. The shoes provided by Fila had the words "125 years" and the logo printed on them. The balls provided by Slazenger also had "125 years" stamped onto them, and a special can design was used. Lanson champagne, which is served on the grounds, had "125 years" stamped on the bottle. Finally, to celebrate the anniversary there was a community art project in which participants were asked to "interpret" an unstrung wooden tennis racket "in a medium of their choosing".[7]

HSBC held a series of polls on the Wimbledon website to find the 10 greatest things about the championships. The polls consisted of anything from greatest character to best final.[8] In addition the bank also teamed up with the Sports Technology Institute at Loughborough University; to predict how tennis would develop over the next 25 years up to 2036; the 150th Wimbledon and 100 years since Fred Perry, the last British male winner of the championships, won.[9]

Attendance

In the United States, the championship matches aired on NBC for the 43rd and final year. The network issued a statement saying it had been outbid for the rights to future broadcasts.[53] Cable sports channel ESPN, which already shared Wimbledon coverage with NBC, will become the exclusive American broadcaster of the tournament for a 12-year period beginning in 2012. Under the agreement, all matches will air live, as opposed to tape delaying some matches as NBC has been criticised for doing.[54]

The tournament was broadcast in 185 countries. The host broadcaster was the BBC and since the championships has linked up with Sony, the tournament was broadcast in 3D for the first time.[51] To mark the 125th anniversary, the night before the tournament began, on 19 June, the BBC broadcast a documentary, 125 years of Wimbledon: You Cannot Be Serious, looking back at memorable moments.[52]
