The Official film of the 2000 Wimbledon Championships.

This is the definitive story of the first Wimbledon Championships of the new Millennium. Pete Sampras defeated Pat Rafter to win a seventh Gentlemen's Single's title, overtaking Roy Emerson as the holder of the most Grand Slam singles crowns, and Venus Williams overcame the defending champion Lindsay Davenport to win her first Grand Slam singles title.

As part of the Millennium celebrations many of The Championships' past winners returned to The All England Club to take part in The Champions Parade, including the five-times winner Bjorn Borg, making his first formal visit to the Centre Court since 1981.

Martina Navratilova returned to the grass courts of SW19 to play in the ladies' and mixed Doubles events, while two of the game's brightest stars, Venus and Serena Williams, together proved to be a winning combination.

In the Gentlemen's Doubles event Mark Woodforde and Todd Woodbridge, fondly known as 'The Woodies', won their sixth Wimbledon title together. It was a fitting end to their doubles career, since Mark Woodforde will soon retire from tennis.

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 Andrew Sachs and written by Andrew Longmore, chief sports writer for the 'Independent on Sunday', 'Wimbledon 2000' is a highly entertaining record of this year's proceeding at the world's finest tennis championships.
