Technically, it is older than the modern incarnation of the Olympic Games (the International Olympic Committee was founded years ago) although not quite as old as The Americas Cup sailing competition, which supersedes Wimbledon by 26 years. As a tennis fan that has watched every Grand slam final since I was a kid, the one I most wanted to experience live was Wimbledon. It was everything I had expected and much more.
