Wimbledon 2023

Wimbledon 2023

July 3 - July 16, 2023

It's that time of the year again and Wimbledon is in full swing so I thought it would be fun to hop in the Rolex Time Machine with Tennis G.O.A.T. Roger Federer and go back to take a look at the history of Rolex and Wimbledon.

Roger Federer 

It is so bizarre to see Rocking Roger Federer in the audience at Wimbledon 2023, since he retired from playing professional tennis.

Nick Gould discovered the photo of Roger and Mirka at Wimbledon 2023, and Rolex just released this superb video about Rocking Roger's amazing tennis career achievements.

Borg v. McEnroe

1980 Wimbledon

The rivalry between John McEnroe and Björn Borg is one of the greatest in history. Rolex created this really cool video so I thought it would be great to share a little more detail on their relationship.

In the photo below taken back in the early 1980s, we see Björn Borg and John McEnroe and they are both wearing Rolex Datejust watches.

In the photo below from 1980, we see André Heiniger with legendary tennis star Bjorn Borg on June 11. On the evening of Men's singles finals at Wimbledon. The 1980 Wimbledon Men's final match was between Björn Borg and John McEnroe was a dramatic struggle which went on for a long time with Borg prevailing. This amazing photo appears courtesy of S3C.
