Maybe you were won over by Andy Murray. Maybe you preferred Serena's storybook Slam. Brian Webber has a little something for everyone as he looks back at the top 10 moments from the fortnight at the All England Club.
No roof required
Centre Court at the All England Club featured a new element this year: a retractable roof. But the $130 million dollar addition wasn't needed for most of the tournament as London was hit by an unexpected heat wave. The customary seasonal rain finally came in Week Two. The roof made its debut in a fourth-round match between Amelie Mauresmo and Dinara Safina. As the roof's two sections slid into place, fans responded with a standing ovation.
Llodra takes a spill
One of the most bizarre moments of Wimbledon occurred in the second-round match between Michael Llodra and Tommy Haas. Llodra sprinted to try to cover a drop shot, slammed into the umpire's chair, and then crashed into a ball girl. The ball girl wasn't hurt, but Llodra suffered an abdominal injury. The Frenchman only played three more games before having to retire from the match. After the match's abrupt ending, Haas decided to entertain the crowd by rallying with another ball girl.
Nestor and Zimonjic win men's doubles
Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjic beat the Bryan Brothers to successfully defend their Wimbledon title. The Bryans were hoping to become the first doubles team to win Wimbledon in the Open Era without dropping a set. Nestor and Zimonjic have been a tandem on the court for less than two years, but they've piling up the victories. They captured their 13th career title at Wimbledon and their sixth championship in 2009.
Hewitt turns back the clock
Lleyton Hewitt was rejuvenated at Wimbledon, displaying some of the form that propelled his championship run at the All England Club in 2002. Hewitt has battled injuries in recent years and has seen his ranking plummet. But in the second round, the former world No. 1 put on a clinic, defeating fifth-seeded Juan Martin Del Potro -- who grew up idolizing the Aussie. Hewitt tested Andy Roddick in the quarterfinals too, taking the American to a pair of tiebreakers in a closely contested five-set loss.
Williams sisters win doubles ... again
The women's doubles final had a familiar feel. Just like last year, Serena and Venus Williams took the court hours after facing each other in the singles final. And just as they did in 2008, the Williamses prevailed, defeating Samantha Stosur and Rennae Stubbs. The sisters won their ninth Grand Slam doubles title together and their fourth as a team at Wimbledon. The Williams sisters have never been beaten in a Grand Slam doubles final.
Oudin arrives on the scene
Melanie Oudin provided an unexpected treat for American tennis fans. The 17-year-old Georgia native came to London ranked No. 124 in the world. Oudin battled her way into the main draw as a qualifier after saving a pair of match points in her first qualifying match, then stunned former world No. 1 Jelena Jankovic in the third round for the signature win of her young career. Though she lost to Agnieszka Radwanska in the fourth round, Oudin served notice she may be ready to compete with the best players on the WTA Tour.
Murray mania sweeps London
While he was unable to win a Wimbledon title, Andy Murray delighted his passionate fans with the best showing of his career at The Championships. The Scot validated his standing as one of the best counter-punchers in tennis, relying largely on his return skills to reach the semifinals. Murray wasn't able to come up with the shots that he needed to defeat Andy Roddick, but he took another step towards realizing his dream of winning at SW19. Tennis fans in the UK have been waiting since 1936 for one of their own to win at Wimbledon. Based on the way Murray has played, they may not have to wait much longer.
Serena wins Slam No. 11
Serena Williams may not be the top-ranked player in women's tennis, but there is little doubt that she is the best player in her sport. Serena outplayed her sister Venus in the singles final to win her third Wimbledon title. It was Serena's first championship in London since 2003 and the 11th Grand Slam title of her remarkable career. Williams has captured three of the last four Slams and will be the player to beat once again as she seeks to defend her U.S. Open title in New York.
Roddick's makes remarkable run to the final
Andy Roddick may have lost in the final to Roger Federer, but it's likely that the American won legions of new fans in defeat. Roddick maintained the momentum generated by his semifinal victory over Murray in his unforgettable championship match with Federer. The No. 6 seed pushed the Swiss star to the brink before finally falling 16-14 in a fifth set for the ages. Roddick handled the emotional loss with a level of sportsmanship that was as impressive as his play in the men's final.
Federer breaks the Slam record
Roger Federer now stands alone with 15 Grand Slam men's singles titles. Federer's win over Roddick contained many of the elements of his greatness: amazing precision, creative shot-making, and relentless tenacity. As he prepares for his 28th birthday in August, Federer still has additional time to enhance his legacy on the court. But it will be difficult to surpass the drama the six-time Wimbledon champion has produced the last two years at the All England Club.
