Wimbledon By The Numbers
Published July 09, 2012 07:44
LONDON, England - One hundred and twenty-seven matches, 294 sets, 2741 games and 17,741 points over 13 rain-interrupted days. And that was just the singles. While numbers never tell the whole story, when it comes to Wimbledon 2012, they certainly make for a good read…
484,862 - The total number of tennis fans who came through the All-England Club turnstiles this year.
102 - Unsurprisingly, Serena also topped the tournament's aces leaderboard - her total of 102 included 24 against Azarenka and was more than the combined tallies of the next four players on the list.
56 - Camila Giorgi jumped 56 spots up the rankings after her run through qualifying and into the fourth round.
38 - There were 38 different nationalities in the singles draw this year.
31 - Radwanska broke serve a whopping 31 times throughout the fortnight.
26 - The longest rally of this year's tournament was 26 shots. And it happened twice. First in Vera Zvonareva and Mona Barthel's first round epic, then again one round later in the match between Anabel Medina Garrigues and Jana Cepelova.
16 - Apparently, 30 is the new 20; singles champ Serena turned 30 last September and there were 15 other members of the three-zero club in the singles draw.
7 - There have now been seven different winners at the last seven majors.
3 - Since Venus won Wimbledon in 2000, there have been only three years in which a Williams sister has not had their name engraved on the Venus Rosewater Dish.
1 - Doubles runners-up Hlavackova and Hradecka had won just one match together on grass prior to arriving in SW19 this year.
