The 2009 Wimbledon Championships took place on the outdoor grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London, from Monday 22 June through to Sunday 5 July 2009. It was the 123rd staging of the Wimbledon Championships, and the third Grand Slam tennis event of the year.

Rafael Nadal did not defend his title after withdrawing from the tournament due to knee tendinitis. Roger Federer won his 6th Wimbledon title defeating rival Andy Roddick in the final in five sets. Federer's victory marked his fifteenth Grand Slam title which broke the men's all-time record. Venus Williams was unsuccessful in her title defence, being defeated in the final by her sister Serena, who won her first Wimbledon title since 2003.

Seniors[edit]

Roger Federer won his sixth Wimbledon crown to be just one shy of Pete Sampras's record of 7 Wimbledon titles, but did exceed his record of 14 grand slams with his 15th slam title.
Serena Williams won her eleventh slam and her third Wimbledon title.

Highlights[edit]

Records[edit]

Swiss Roger Federer established a number of records at the 2009 Wimbledon Championships. By defeating Ivo Karlović in the quarterfinals, Federer reached his 21st consecutive Grand Slam semi-final, having started the streak at Wimbledon in 2004.[6] He then defeated Tommy Haas in the semi-final to reach his 7th consecutive Wimbledon final and his 20th Grand Slam final, both all-time records.[7] Finally, by defeating Andy Roddick in the final, Federer won his 15th Grand Slam title, breaking Pete Sampras's previous record of 14.[8] Federer also became the fourth man to complete the rare French Open-Wimbledon double in the Open Era, joining Rod Laver, Björn Borg and Rafael Nadal, who completed the feat the previous year and would do so again the following year.

Among other records set, the men's final had the highest number of viewers in the UK of any Wimbledon final since 2001, peaking at 11.1 million viewers during the last stretch of the match,[9] and the 30-game fifth set in the men's final between Federer and Roddick was the longest in Wimbledon history.[10]

Centre Court roof[edit]

The 2009 Championships coincided with an extended period of hot, dry weather in south-east England.[11] This meant that it was only on day seven of the tournament (29 June) that the newly constructed Centre Court roof was closed for the first time due to rain, delaying a match between Amélie Mauresmo and Dinara Safina.[12] The following match between Andy Murray and Stanislas Wawrinka was the first full-length match played under the new roof; thanks to the new floodlights, it was also the latest finish ever at Wimbledon, ending at 22:38. Murray won the match 6–3 in the fifth set. These were the only two matches in which the roof was used. The record for latest finish has since been surpassed by Andy Murray in his 4 set match against Baghdatis in 2012 which ended at 23:02.

Tennis Integrity Unit[edit]

The Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) planned to observe matches played by up to 12 players (some of whom were inside the ATP top 50) throughout the tournament. The TIU has existed since January 2008.

The ATP claimed to have identified Russian and Italian Mafia-related groups behind suspicious betting at other tournaments, although the organizers of the Wimbledon Championships declared that there are no current proceedings against any players.[13][14]

Day-by-day summaries[edit]

Day 1 (22 June)[edit]

The first day of Wimbledon 2009 saw 2008 Men's Singles runner-up and five-time Wimbledon Champion Roger Federer open on Centre Court due to defending champion and number 1 seed Rafael Nadal withdrawing due to injury. Roger Federer got past the first round and in straight sets. Some of the day's winners were 2008 Australian Open Champion Novak Djoković, 2009 French Open finalist Robin Söderling, Fernando Verdasco, Marin Čilić, Ivo Karlović, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Mardy Fish and former French Open champion Guillermo Cañas. Nicolás Almagro survived a five set match against Juan Mónaco despite losing the first two sets 6–7(3) 6–7(7) 7–6(5) 6–4 8–6. Two matches were suspended in the first day: the matches between Michaël Llodra and Joshua Goodall, and Tommy Haas and Alexander Peya. However the first major upset of the tournament came when Italy's Andreas Seppi defeated Queen's Club finalist James Blake in straight sets 7–5 6–4 7–6(5).

In the Women's side last year's finalist and two time Champion Serena Williams easily won in straight sets, and she was joined by Shahar Pe'er, Jill Craybas, Urszula Radwańska, Russians Elena Dementieva, Alisa Kleybanova Elena Vesnina, Nadia Petrova, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, 2004 Wimbledon Champion Maria Sharapova and last years' semi-finalist Jie Zheng. Slovakian player Daniela Hantuchová won a three set thriller against last year Girls Singles Champion and Britain's young prodigy Laura Robson 3–6 6–4 6–2, while former finalist Marion Bartoli scored the first double bagel of the tournament against Taipei's Yung-jan Chan. While the 2009 Ordina Open Champion Tamarine Tanasugarn lost to Arantxa Parra Santonja in straight sets, the major upset was when Ai Sugiyama defeated Patty Schnyder in straight sets.
