The 2013 Wimbledon Championships were marked by craziness throughout the fortnight. A 77-year drought was ended and a new women's Grand Slam champion was crowned—not something you see every year in London.

The title by Andy Murray was the first Wimbledon won by a British man since Fred Perry in 1936. After coming two sets short in 2012 against Roger Federer, this time the Scot was able to hoist the trophy after knocking off world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.

The women's titleholder is French veteran Marion Bartoli, who hadn't even reached the semifinals of a tournament this season. She was the runner-up to Venus Williams in 2007 at the All England Club, but was still a surprising winner this season.

All in all, the greatest tennis tournament in the world was as good as ever, filled with great matches and stories throughout. Let's take a look at some of the top takeaways from the event.
