Description
Wimbledon - The Record Breakers is a powerful, revealing account of some of the most important records to have been achieved at The Wimbledon Championships in the modern era.

In 1985 Boris Becker shocked the world by winning the Men's Singles Final at the age of 17. Becker recalls his magical journey to become the youngest men's champion, the first German and the first unseeded player to win the Men's Singles title.

With nine Ladies Singles titles to her name, the naturalised American Martina Navratilova is the most successful woman to have played at Wimbeldon. From her first singles success in 1978 to her last in 1990, Martina recalls her path to record breaking glory. In 1979 Navratilova helped Billie Jean King to achieve a record twenty titles with their success in the Ladies Doubles Final, a feat which Martina herself has now equalled.

Navratilova's namesake Martina Hingis from Switzerland became the youngest champion to win the Ladies Doubles title in 1996. Hingis remembers what it was like to achieve that feat and to go on to win the Ladies Singles crown the following year.

With a record seven Men's Singles titles, Pete Sampras is arguably the greatest men's Wimbledon champion of all time. He remembers his first victory against fellow American Jim Courier in 1993 and other classic finals against Boris Becker, his compatriot Andre Agassi and the Croatian Goran Ivanisevic and recalls his record-breaking seventh title victory against the Australian Pat Rafter in 2000.

The Swiss sensation Roger Federer is the defending Wimbledon Champion and regarded by many as the heir to Pete Sampras' Wimbledon throne. Federer recalls his dramatic triumph over the seven-time champion in 2001.

Narrated by Geoffrey Palmer and written by Andrew Longmore, Wimbledon - The Record Breakers is a fascinating insight into the minds of some of Wimbledon's greatest champions as they recall their most famous record-breaking triumphs on the hallowed turf of the All England Lawn Tennis Club.
