The 2017 Wimbledon Championships are just a few more days away. The most awaited tennis tournament of the year and also the oldest. Wimbledon completes 140 years since it was first played in 1877. The 3rd Major of the year is the 131st Edition of the Championships.
With lot at stake for the players and the prestige of the tournament we take a look at the records which might be broken at this years Championships.
Most Gentlemen’s Singles Titles
Although Roger Federer has the record for most all time Gentlemen’s Singles titles at Wimbledon, he is tied with William Renshaw and Pete Sampras at 7. Winning at this years Championships would make him clear of the two and make him the first man ever to win 8 Wimbledon Singles titles.
The 7 time winner won his first Major in over 4 years at this years Australian Open and it would be no surprise if he wins his 8th at Wimbledon.
