Some fun Wimbledon facts for you to impress your colleagues with over the water cooler!

·         To keep the courts clear of those pesky London pigeons, a hawk named Rufus swoops around to scare them off, Rufus lives in Corby, Northamptonshire (just a few miles away from MRM HQ!), Rufus even has his own accounts on Twitter and Facebook, and his own Wimbledon security photo pass!

·         The record for the most aces goes to John Isner, with 214 during Wimbledon 2018, he also has the record for the most in a single match with 113 during his 11 hour match with Nicolas Mahut.  He still has a bit of catching up to do to match with Ivo Karolvic who has an outstanding 13,402 across his career.

·         During the tournament, over 54,000 match balls are used, and are replaced every 7-9 games to make sure they’re in perfect shape.  Those not being used are stored in a refrigerator until needed and kept at exactly 68 degrees Fahrenheit, which apparently controls the bounce!  Wimbledon used to use white balls, until they were replaced in 1986 with yellow to make them more visible for television.

·         The record for the fastest men’s serve at Wimbledon belongs to US player Taylor Dent, whose ball clocked in at a top speed of 147mph, American Venus Williams is the women’s record holder, smashing a serve in at 127mph.

·         Some tennis players are known for being particularly noisy with all the physical effort of hitting the ball, Russia’s Maria Sharapova has the record for the loudest grunt reaching 105 decibels, which is about the same as standing next to an accelerating motorcycle!
