Description
The Official film of the 1999 Wimbledon Championships.

This is the definitive story of the 1999 Wimbledon Championships - the year Pete Sampras achieved a record six Gentlemen's singles titles with a breath taking display of tennis against an in-form Andre Agassi, and Lindsay Davenport overcame the seven-times champion Steffi Graf to win her first Wimbledon crown.

The documentary features emerging stars and great champions of the past. Sixteen year old Jelena Dokic upstaged the top seed Martina Hingis in the first round and made it through to the quarter-finals where she was defeated by the eighteen year old qualifier, Alexandra Stevenson.

John McEnroe returned to the grasscourts of SW19 joining forces with Steffi Graf in the mixed Doubles event, while Boris Becker played his final match on his beloved Centre Court.

Tim Henman carried the weight of British expectation, reaching the semi-finals for a second successive year, before his progress was halted once again by the defending champion Pete Sampras.

In addition, the film provides an insight into the work of some of the figures behind-the-scenes whose contributions make Wimbledon such a distinctive sporting occasion.

Narrated by Geoffrey Palmer and written by John Roberts, tennis correspondent of 'The Independent', 'Wimbledon 1999' is a highly entertaining record of this years proceedings at the world's finest tennis Championships.
