Roger Federer has admitted that he never thought he’d be a record eight-time Wimbledon champion and would even have laughed if he was told he’d win two majors in 2017.
Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, and widely considered the most prestigious tennis championship. Held in London at the All England Club in Wimbledon since 1877, it is one of four grand slam tennis tournaments along with the Australian, French and US Open events. Wimbledon is the only tennis major still played on grass, the game's original surface. 2017 will mark the 131st edition of the event and will take place from 3 July to 16 July 2017. Andy Murray and Serena Williams are the reigning champions
