Wimbledon The Record Breakers is a powerful, revealing account of some of the most important records to have been achieved at The Wimbledon Championships in the modern era.

In 1985 Boris Becker shocked the world by winning the Men s Singles Final at the age of 17. Becker recalls his magical journey to become the youngest men s champion, the first German and the first unseeded player to win the Men's Singles title.

With nine Ladies Singles titles to her name, the naturalised American Martina Navratilova is the most successful woman to have played at Wimbledon. From her first singles success in 1978 to her last in 1990, Martina recalls her path to record breaking glory. In 1979 Navratilova helped Billie Jean King to achieve a record breaking glory. In 1979 Navratilova helped Billie Jean King to achieve a record twenty titles with their success in the Ladies Doubles Finals, a feat which Martina herself has now equalled.

With a record seven Men's Singles titles, Pete Sampras is arguably the greatest men's Wimbledon champion of all time. He remembers his first victory against fellow American Jim Courier in 1993 and other classic finals against Boris Becker, his compatriot Andre Agassi and the Croatian Goran Ivanisevic and recalls his record-breaking seventh victory against the Australian Pat Rafter in 2000.

The Swiss sensation Roger Federer is the defending Wimbledon Champion and regarded by many as the heir to Pete Sampras Wimbledon throne. Federer recalls his dramatic triumph over the seven-time champion in 2001.

Narrated by Geoffrey Palmer and written by Andrew Longmore, Wimbledon The Record Breakers is a fascinating insight into the minds of some of Wimbledon s greatest champions as they recall their most famous record-breaking triumphs on the hallowed turf of the All England Tennis Club.

I suppose this was fine over 2 years ago if you bought it then, but now it is out of date as Federer has become the greatest Wimbledon champion with not just an equal 7 wins to Sampras with Federer's win this year, 2012, but was also beaten finalist in 2008 making 8 finals achieved whilst Sampras has only played in 7 finals. I looked back in the list of champions and I think I'm right that only one other player in the history of the Championships has achieved 7 wins and that was Renshaw. He like Sampras only played in 7 finals. So that makes Federer the greatest champion in this tournament - and counting........

I would suggest that this DVD is a nice piece of history but I hope it will be reissued when Federer finally retires from the Tour, thus giving Federer his due and then I'll probably buy it. Hopefully they will also extend it from a measly 52 minutes to a more respectable hour and a half at the very least, and include a couple of other past champions. For example, Renshaw with his 7 titles should be mentioned particularly as he and his brother were absolutely revolutionary players in their day.

Regarding the ladies, I don't follow the ladies' game much but surely the Williams sisters should get a mention in an updated version of this DVD? There are also the doubles and mixed doubles players, and the juniors, the seniors, the wheelchair tennis. Wheelchair tennis is extraordinary in itself as we finally could see in the Paralympics this year.

I feel at times that some "Wimbledon" DVDs are extremely superficial - as though cashing in on famous names. Only 52 minutes for example is almost an insult to the purchaser.
