5 Wimbledon Greats by PlayHugeLottos.com (part 1)
Wimbledon is arguably the greatest of all the Grand Slam tennis tournaments, not just for the thrilling tennis but for the tradition that accompanies it.
The Wimbledon crowd, buoyed up by strawberries and cream and a cheeky Pimms, has taken in many a fantastic tennis scene. Let’s take a look at the top 5 Wimbledon greats according to us:
John McEnroe Screams at the Umpire
Remember John McEnroe? How could he ever be forgotten! Back in 1981 the young American's impudence both shocked and thrilled the tennis world, earning him the nickname ‘Super Brat’.
A 22-year-old McEnroe let rip at umpire Edward James after his refusal to rule a serve in against Tom Gullikson. A frustrated McEnroe screamed what would become his immortal catchphrase: “You cannot be serious!??!!”
The No 2 seed was given a warning, lost two penalty points, broke a racquet and then went on to win not just that match but the men's title.
We can imagine many of our players uttering that same line when checking the record breaking jackpots on our site ($595 million on the Powerball back in May this year comes immediately to mind).
Becker is a champion at 17
Boris Becker wowed the watching world when he won Wimbledon aged just 17. At once he became the youngest ever male player, the first German player AND the first unseeded player to win Wimbledon!
We will let Becker describe the feelings of becoming champion for the first time:
“When I look back at that final now, I tell people it was the moment I was reborn. I was born once in 1967, and again on July 7, 1985, when I won Wimbledon at the age of 17. It was the year everything changed for me!”
Stay tuned for next week’s Mailer Madness news item when we bring you the final three Wimbledon greats on our list!
