Why is Wimbledon green and purple?
I haven’t been able to find an explanation of the green and purple for Wimbledon – but I suspect the green is the grass (it is after all LAWN tennis) and the purple may be for the tournament’s long association with British royalty – since 1907 when the Prince of Wales (later George V) attended.
There is no dress code for Wimbledon spectators, however, dressing smartly is encouraged, especially if frequenting Centre Court or Court Number One. After all, if the players make an effort with their outfits – within the strict confines of the all-white colour code, mind – spectators should want to follow suit.
The good news for tennis fans is Court 1 at Wimbledon does have a retractable roof. … The roof covers the entire grass playing surface as well as the spectators in the new 12,345 capacity arena – an increase of around 1,000 seats to the old Court 1 stadium.
A sixth title at the All England Club in London means Djokovic has closed in on second-placed Pete Sampras and William Renshaw (7) and topper Federer (8) for most Wimbledon titles. Djokovic has now won 85 career titles.
