Wimbledon 2010: The Grandest of Slams
This is the definitive story of the 124th Championships. In the Men's Singles, the world number one Rafael Nadal returned to SW19 having missed Wimbledon last year with knee injuries. He was determined to recapture the crown he had won in 2008. In the Women's Singles defending champion Serena Williams was attempting to win her 13th Grand Slam title.
The 2010 Championships was a royal tournament thanks to the first visit to The All England Club by Her Majesty the Queen for thirty-three years. It was also a record-breaking occasion in many ways, most notably in an unforgettable first round marathon Men's Singles match between the American John Isner and France s Nicholas Mahut which ended 70-68 in the fifth set, smashing virtually every record in the sport.
The defending champion Roger Federer crashed out at the quarter-final stage, beaten 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 by the twelfth seeded Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic. Andy Murray once again carried the hopes of the home nation. In the semi final he came up against Rafael Nadal but the Spaniard progressed through to his fourth Wimbledon final 6-4, 7-6, 6-4.
Serena Williams defeated Russia's Vera Zvonareva 6-3, 6-2 in the Women's Final. She served 89 aces throughout the Championships, beating her own record set in 2009.
In the Men's Final Rafael Nadal secured his second Wimbledon title defeating Federer's conqueror Berdych 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 to take his tally of Grand Slam titles to eight.
Narrated by Sam Hazeldine, written by Barry Flatman of the Sunday Times and featuring exclusive contributions from Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams, Roger Federer, Martina Navratilova, Jimmy Connors and Billie Jean King, this documentary is a dramatic and highly entertaining record of the proceedings at The Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon 2010.

I'm a Rafael Nadal fan & I buy almost everything with him in it but I like tennis in general & this is a really good film and Rafa won the final so I (and many other fans) was really pleased!
Rafa fans will love this book The Poetry of Passion (for People with a Pulse) it's got 80 poems in about how us fans feel about him, the highs the lows and his lovely humble personality and his sexy looks, and the other poems about love are good too.
The longest ever tennis match in history between John Isner & Nicholas Mahut which was a 5 setter over about 3 days & ended with a score of 70 games to 68 in the 5th set!!
The Queen attended the Championships for the 1st time in 33 years & met past Champions & players.
Rafael Nadal fans were treated to a 2nd Wimbledon win by their hero, although not really a classic final as he beat Berdych in straight sets it was a perfect end to Wimbledon 2010 for Rafa's many fans.
If you're a Tennis Fan this is a great Souvenir, it's a well put together film that all tennis fans will enjoy & includes bits from many of the matches in both the ladies & mens.
Rafa fans will also love the book The Poetry of Passion (for People with a Pulse) as it has a long chapter called "A Fan's Feelings" of 80 poems about Rafa, his career, his personality & his good looks (& the rest of the book is brilliant too) No Rafa fan should be without it!
