This year is the 135th event of The Championships Wimbledon. The Grand Slam, which combines classic heritage with modern concepts, will present another classic event for the British summer in two weeks. From June 27th to July 10th, the world's top players and rising stars will gather in southwest London to compete fiercely. Rolex will also return to The Championships Wimbledon, once again as the timepiece of the oldest Grand Slam convention.
The Championships Wimbledon has always held a special place in the hearts of tennis fans around the world. Its charm is far from its long history, unique atmosphere and far-reaching tradition, but also because it has witnessed the legendary moments that were created by the outstanding players of tennis in countless epic duels. The event organiser, All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, focuses on the classic heritage of the event, and also keeps its strong commitment to innovation.
In 1978, Rolex and Wimbledon, the third Grand Slam of the year, began a fruitful partnership with tennis. Since then, Rolex has adhered to the concept of promoting outstanding performance in tennis, and continued to strive for progress while continuing to carry on this sporting tradition. Today, Rolex has established long-term cooperative relationships with all four major tennis championships, and it is committed to supporting elite tennis players and legends, and has established close ties with global tennis governing bodies.
Rolex spokesperson Roger Federer is synonymous with The Championships Wimbledon. And he won his first Grand Slam on the Wimbledon green field in 2003, and has since started his era with strong strength. In 2017, the 35-year-old Swiss legend won his eighth Wimbledon trophy with his superb skills, demonstrating his prosperous career and unremitting pursuit of tennis.
Players who have performed well at Wimbledon include Rolex spokesperson Björn Borg, who won five consecutive Wimbledon titles from 1976 to 1980; and the United States Player Chris Evert, who has held the Venus Rosewater Dish three times in her career.
