Wimbledon 2012: Highlighting the Greatest Champions in Wimbledon History

The Championships, Wimbledon have existed since 1877 (gentlemen's) and 1884 (ladies'). There have been many great champions in the century and a quarter since the tournament's inception. 

Sadly world wars took away 10 years of action at Wimbledon and derailed what could have been even more great tennis and history.

Nonetheless, selecting 25 (and a bonus) great Wimbledon champions is a fun task.

It teaches us the power of consistency and, for some, resilience. Many champions on this list have repeated championships and carried the crown for years upon years. Others have won once and then found their way back to the trophy many years later. 

All have embodied what it means to win at Wimbledon: class, heart and great skill.
