The 2009 Wimbledon Championships was a tennis tournament played on grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London in England.[1][2] It was the 123rd edition of the Wimbledon Championships and was held from 22nd June to 5th July 2009. It was the third Grand Slam tennis event of the year.

Rafael Nadal did not defend his title as he withdrew from the tournament due to knee tendonitis. 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, establishing the men's all-time record. Venus Williams was unsuccessful in the title's defence, having been defeated in the final match by her sister Serena, who won her first Wimbledon since 2002.
