I was in the USA in 1999 and heard news reporters on the TV referring to it as "Wimpleton" and "Wimbleton" :roll:

Also, they referred to Pete Sampras as the "Most Winningest" male tennis player at Wimbledon. :?

As a kid I thought it was called Wimbleton. Maybe because I heard a reporter too? lol

Ha, not with "Wimbledon", but, with several other words and sentences, I would be penalized with the electric chair ! :shock:

But, like Guillermo Vilas said with deep philosophy, "Wimbledon is Wimbledon" and with deeper philosophy said "The grass is for the cows".
