Wimbledon 2011 starts on Monday - We look back at at some amazing figures from the tournament's history.
1 tonne of grass seed is used each year. The court grass is made of 100 per cent rye grass because of its durability and is drenched in around 3,000 gallons of water during the tournament, dependent on the weather. The playing height of the grass is 8mm, and has been for the past 12 years.
The highest number of men's singles titles won by one player. The record is shared by Britian's William Renshaw, who won them between 1881-1889, and Pete Sampras (pictured), who was dominant on Centre Court throughout the 90s. Roger Federer will have an opportunity to join them with a win at this year's Championships.
