The two singles champions, Rafael Nadal and Venus Williams.

The 2008 Wimbledon Championships was a tennis tournament played on grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London in England.[1][2] It was the 122nd edition of the Wimbledon Championships and were held from 23 June to 6 July 2008. It was the third Grand Slam tennis event of the year.

Spanish player Rafael Nadal won the first Wimbledon title of his career; the first Grand Slam tournament he had won other than the French Open. Nadal defeated five-time defending champion Roger Federer in the final in what many regard as the greatest tennis match of all time.[3][4][5] In the women's singles, Venus Williams claimed her fifth title, and first win over her sister Serena in a Wimbledon final (she had lost the previous two). The performances of Britons Andy Murray in the men's singles and Laura Robson in the girls' singles were able to arouse significant interest from the home crowd.

Following the completion of the 2007 Championships, the new fixed roof was put in place, in time for the 2008 Championships. The retractable section of the new roof was completed for the 2009 Championships.

Prize money

The total prize money for 2008 championships was £11,812,000. The winner of the men's and women's singles title earned £750,000.[6][7]

Notable stories

Betting scandal

There were allegations in a dossier that several matches, including eight at Wimbledon, were under suspicion of being fixed by professional gambling syndicates after bookmakers noted unexpected spikes in betting patterns.[17] The dossier, released on the Sunday prior to the first day of play, had been commissioned by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), Women's Tennis Association (WTA), International Tennis Federation (ITF), and four Grand Slams earlier in the year, and was compiled by bookmakers. An official said, "If you look at a tournament, you might see one match for £23,000 [in betting turnover], one for £27,000, one for £36,000 and one for £4.5m. It doesn't take a genius to work out that something is going on in the last one."[18] Betting on Wimbledon matches was popular in 2007, with over £420m wagered on bets.

To help deal with any potential gambling problems, the All England Club restricted access to player's changing rooms this year, allowing only the player and their coach permission. It was hoped that this would make communication between gamblers and players more difficult.[18] Match fixing became a prominent issue in the media after the 2007 Orange Prokom Open, where the then World No. 4 Nikolay Davydenko came under suspicion of colluding with gamblers, and gambling company Betfair took the unprecedented step of voiding all bets on a match of his with Martín Vassallo Argüello.

Pigeon killing controversy

The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, the sport club that plays host to the Championships, came under fire from animal activists for using marksmen to shoot down dive-bombing pigeons. The marksmen were ordered to use hawks to scare them away, but when some failed to do so, the marksmen killed them, which led to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) group releasing a statement admonishing the practice and subsequently, referring to the Animal Welfare Act 2006, contacting the Metropolitan Police.[19]

Several players complained about the pigeons distracting them during play, and because of the inefficient nature of the hawks, rapid action was sought on the Sunday evening before the tournament began.[20] The marksmen were hired by the All England Club and, armed with rifles, shot several birds. When the media broke the story on Monday, a spokesman for the All England Club defended the club's approach, saying that, "The hawks are our first line of deterrent, and by and large they do the job. But unfortunately there were one or two areas where the hawks didn't deter the pigeons, so it was deemed necessary to take a harder approach."[21] By Tuesday however, the Metropolitan Police wildlife crime unit had been alerted to the practice by PETA, after allegedly infringing the Animal Welfare Act 2006. Bruce Friedrich, vice-president of PETA, wrote in a letter to the All England Club chairman Tim Phillips, that the birds did not represent "a demonstrable risk to public health and safety", and the activity was therefore in violation of the Act.[20] A Wimbledon spokesperson subsequently announced that they had reneged on their policy, and that the All England Club would no longer shoot pigeons.

A similar, but more inconspicuous, incident also occurred on the Sunday evening before the Championships. A swarm of bees descended upon the area surrounding the All England Club; this caused the clearing out of the players' lawn (where competitors gather after play) and a temporary cessation of some interviews.[22][23] Further disruption was caused because organizers had to alter the overnight queuing system, in order to protect people. This was the first time that bees had caused disruptions at the All England Club. Some media outlets reported that the bees deserted the grounds after around 90 minutes,[23][24] whilst others claimed that a similar resolution to the pigeon problem was sought, with the bees being professionally exterminated.[22]

British performance

Laura Robson (l), in her first round juniors match against Alexa Guarachi.

The British public were left with some palpable success, as London-based Laura Robson became the first British girl to win the Girls' juniors competition since Annabel Croft in 1984. Robson, aged 14 and the youngest player in the Girls' juniors, had to beat players aged up to 18, the maximum age allowed for entry into the juniors.[25][26] She garnered considerable media attention,[25][27][28] and, with a large crowd gathered to watch both her semi-final and final matches (the latter of which was on No. 1 Court), she called it an "overwhelming experience."[29] British based gambling company Ladbrokes slashed her odds of winning Wimbledon before 2020 from 50/1 to 20/1.[28] In the seniors, 2007 mixed doubles champion Jamie Murray could not replicate his triumph of the previous year with new partner Liezel Huber after his 2007 partner, Jelena Jankovi?, opted not to play in order to concentrate on the singles competition.[30] Murray & Huber were able to reach the semifinals.

In the seniors singles competition Scot Andy Murray made the most significant impact, becoming the first Brit since Tim Henman in 2004 to reach the quarterfinals. Murray, often castigated in the British media for his surly manner, won the crowd's affections with his five-set victory over Richard Gasquet (for further details on this match, see the Day 7 summary).[31][32] In the UK, the Murray-Gasquet match was watched by over 10m people, and in his native Scotland more than 50% of the potential viewing public watched the match.[33]Chris Eaton from Surrey, the ATP No. 661, began his campaign in qualifying, succeeded in doing so, and then beat ATP No. 114 Boris Pa?anski, causing a huge surprise.[34] No British women made it beyond the second round, although Anne Keothavong was the first British woman to directly qualify to the main draw since 1998.

A tournament of upsets and fairytales

Rainer Schüttler reached his first Wimbledon semi-final.

The men's side was notable for the performances of Marat Safin and Rainer Schüttler, ranked 75th and 94th respectively entering the tournament. Safin caused an upset in the second round when he defeated Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic in straight sets,[35] on his way to his first ever Wimbledon semi-final, where he lost to Roger Federer. After more than five years without reaching the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament, and 13 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments without advancing past the second round, Schüttler also advanced to his first Wimbledon semi-final,[36] where he was defeated by the eventual champion Rafael Nadal in straight sets.[37] Schüttler had earlier defeated Arnaud Clément, who had previously not reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament since reaching the final of the 2001 Australian Open, in an epic quarter-final which had lasted two days.[38]

Agnieszka Radwa?ska reached her first Wimbledon quarter-final by upsetting Svetlana Kuznetsova in the fourth round.

The women's draw saw some of the biggest upsets in the tournament's history, in which the top four seeds (Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovi?, Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova) all failed to reach the quarter-finals.[39] Maria Sharapova suffered her earliest exit at Wimbledon and her earliest exit at a Grand Slam since the 2003 US Open when she went down to Alla Kudryavtseva in the second round, whilst recent French Open champion and newly crowned World No. 1 Ana Ivanovic was stunned in the third round by Chinese wildcard entrant and World No. 133 Zheng Jie. This was the earliest exit by a top seed at Wimbledon since Martina Hingis lost in the first round in 2001, and Zheng Jie also became the lowest-ranked player ever to defeat a top seed at the tournament. Jankovi? and Kuznetsova had their tournaments ended in the fourth round by Tamarine Tanasugarn and Agnieszka Radwa?ska, respectively. This was the first time since seedings began at Wimbledon in 1927 (and the first time in the Open Era) in which none of the top four seeds advanced past the fourth round at Wimbledon. For Zheng Jie's part, she became the second Chinese player (after Li Na in 2006) to reach the final eight at Wimbledon, and the first wildcard entry in the tournament's history to reach the semi-finals (a feat later achieved by Sabine Lisicki in 2011, where she also beat the reigning French Open champion), where she was defeated by eventual runner-up Serena Williams, whilst Tanasugarn reached her first Grand Slam quarter-final by virtue of her victory against Jankovi?, losing to the eventual champion Venus Williams.
