 Talk:List of Wimbledon champions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cantus recently moved the Ladies' list to Women's, etc., but Wimbledon uses the somewhat archaic terms "Gentlemen's" and "Ladies'".
I think that Wimbledon usage should be followed in these lists and propose that they be moved accordingly.
I was aiming for consistency among the rest of the grand slam tournaments.

 CNNSI.com - 2002 Wimbledon - Sampras, Agassi, Safin sent packing with upsets - Thursday June 27, 2002 03:37 AM
On a court nicknamed the "graveyard of champions," Sampras rallied from two sets down but came up short 6-3, 6-2, 4-6, 3-6, 6-4 against George Bastl, a Swiss player ranked 145th in the world.
It was the seven-time champion's earliest exit from the grass-court championships in 11 years.
Safin leads the ATP Champions Race, which counts points in tournaments this year, but couldn't handle the quickness and clever play of the 63rd-ranked Rochus.

Kuerten wants Wimbledon to seed players according to their positions on the ATP tournament entry system, which ranks players according to their results over the previous 52 weeks.
Wimbledon apparently wants the seedings to be decided by using a point system weighted in favor of grass court performances or potential.

WIMBLEDON (Reuters) - It was as if he had never been away.
Never mind that he had won just two senior level tournament matches in the past two years, his serve was as explosive as ever and his volleys as crisp as can be as he ousted Russian Mikhail Youzhny 6-3, 7-6, 6-2.
Ranked 415 in the world, his win over the 31st seed was unexpected, but it will barely warrant an entry in the Croatian's list of Wimbledon exploits when he quits professional tennis after this event.

With Australian PAT CASH, 1987 Wimbledon champ, also serving as tennis consultant on the film, Wimbledon was granted unprecedented access by The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTCC) to film during the 2003 championships, one of the most watched sporting events in the world.
But before tackling the challenges of on-court filming, Loncraine and Wimbledon's producers proceeded with moving the script forward, ensuring that the world of professional tennis would be rightly served, and filling the roles with actors at home in both worlds presented in the story.
Wimbledon's 15-week shoot began in July, 2003, and included seven weeks of location filming at Wimbledon (filming primarily on three courts: Centre, two and three, plus a small amount of shooting on courts six, seven and eight).

 Guardian | Hewitt on a roll in one-sided triumph
And even as Lleyton Hewitt, the new men's champion, rolled on the grass celebrating his victory, he was probably hoping that he has better days on the Centre Court ahead.
Hewitt and the 20-year-old Nalbandian were, in aggregate terms, the youngest pair to contest the men's final, but memories of their meeting will be short.
That match was far more of a genuine contest than the one which added a new name to the list of Wimbledon champions yesterday.
