The sight of fans enjoying strawberries and cream has become synonymous with the annual championship at Wimbledon, one of tennis' four grand slams.
Waiting since Wade —
The last British singles champion at Wimbledon was Virginia Wade, who claimed the women's title in 1977. Coincidentally, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her silver jubilee that year, and current British hope Andy Murray will be hoping 2012's diamond jubilee celebrations prove a lucky omen.
Peerless Perry —
British tennis fans have to look back even further for the country's last male champion. Fred Perry was victorious at the All England Club on three occasions between 1934-36.
Murray misery —
Current British hopes rest on the shoulders of world No. 4 Murray, who has been a beaten semifinalist in each of the last three years. In 2010 and 2011, it was Spain's Rafael Nadal who defeated him in the last four.
Fashion code —
Unlike other grand slams, Wimbledon rules dictate that players must play in all white attire. But some players still put an individual slant on their clothing, including this extravagant effort from five-time champion Venus William in 2011.
