Wimbledon Breaking from Tradition ...
Back in the Day when I first became aware of the mighty Wimbledon, the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club was still using White Tennis Balls, the Players were required to bow (men) or curtsey (women) upon leaving Center Court in the presence of the Duke & Duchess and the afore mentioned would present the Winner's Trophy personally on Court without the benefit of audio, so you didn't get to hear what they were saying to the Champions, silence amongst the Spectators was not only expected but adhered to and celebration was expected to be done in a reserved controlled fashion.
Serve & Volley was the name of this game regardless of 1st or 2nd serve. The receipt for success at Wimbledon was, "Get to the Net". Does anyone recall the first Baseliner to win Wimbledon? Well I'm not certain but I believe it could have possibly been Andre Agassi in 1992. which by this time the balls were yellow, the Audience was beginning to loosen up a bit and openly express their appreciation for good play and the stiff upper lips of Great Britain decided to drop some of the title now simply referring to themselves as 'The All England Club' and the lawn bares the signs of an obvious absents of Serve & Volley Players.
As far as I can see, the only thing that has remained the same are the white outfits and they still have grass. But as soon as next year, you will see a retractable roof to thwart off rain delays.
Ah yes Wimbledon, where tradition never dies ..
