Everything will always be different moving forward for Andy Murray, who became the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years by beating No. 1-ranked Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 in Sunday's final.
From the lawns of Wimbledon to the lochs of Scotland, all of Britain can celebrate. Andy Murray made it possible Sunday, winning his country's hallowed tennis tournament to become the first British man in 77 years to raise the trophy at the All England Club.
One of the strangest Wimbledons produced one of its quirkiest champions in Marion Bartoli, the winner of a final that had the overwhelmed runner-up in near tears during the match.
Novak Djokovic might win Wimbledon this year. Juan Martin del Potro will not. No matter how it ends, both men will always have their spot in one of the most memorable matches in the storied history of the All England Club.
Lisicki was a 2011 semifinalist at the All England Club. She beat fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 2-6, 9-7 Thursday. Bartoli also asserted control early on, but she never let up in a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Kirsten Flipkens.
Second-seeded Murray is trying to become the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years. But he got pushed around by the 54th-ranked Fernando Verdasco, who served six aces in winning the first two sets.
Djokovic and Murray have yet to lose a set, let alone a match, so far at Wimbledon. The way things have been going at the All England Club this fortnight, that's quite an accomplishment.
Week 2 begins Monday with a schedule that includes participants such as Kenny de Schepper and Adrian Mannarino, Ivan Dodig and Jerzy Janowicz, Karin Knapp and Monica Puig.
The locals' hopes that Murray will follow up his 2012 U.S. Open victory with another major title, this time at Wimbledon, only increased in the aftermath of surprisingly early losses this week by seven-time champion Roger Federer, two-time winner Rafael Nadal and two-time semifinalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
By the end of Thursday, all 11 U.S. men in the 2013 field at the All England Club were gone, with top-seeded Novak Djokovic accounting for the last one by beating 156th-ranked qualifier Bobby Reynolds 7-6 (2), 6-3, 6-1.
The third-seeded Sharapova, the Wimbledon champion in 2004 champion, lost 6-3, 6-4 to Michelle Larcher de Brito of Portugal in the second round at the All England Club.
Federer's loss ended his record streak of reaching at least the quarterfinals at 36 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments, a run that began at Wimbledon in 2004, shortly after a third-round exit at that year's French Open.
The International Tennis Federation said it believed the previous high total for one day at a major tournament was five, which happened on the first day of competition at Wimbledon last year, June 25.
Williams is looking for her sixth Wimbledon title and improved her career record to 68-8 at the All England Club. She extended her career-best winning streak to 32 matches.
Opening the tournament on Centre Court as defending champion, Federer looked right as home as he dismantled Victor Hanescu of Romania 6-3, 6-2, 6-0 in just 68 minutes.
