The oldest tennis tournament in the world, Wimbledon has been called a roller-coaster with rockets this year -

"Just when we thought Andy Murray had taken all the drama out of Wimbledon for British fans with the cold, efficiency of his earlier performances, he obliged with a roller-coaster ride that was more in the tradition of his predecessor Tim Henman. Who wants straightforward victories when you can have a full-blooded four or five-set encounter".

The rocket came as a shock to Venus Williams. She learned that she had broken the tournament's fastest serve record when she fired a 127mph ace past Spain's Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez.
