In the players’ box, in the Royal Box, in the commentary box or on the courts, former champions were everywhere!
2-time Wimbledon champion Stefan Edberg, Roger Federer’s coach:
3-time champion Boris Becker, now Novak Djokovic coach:
Amélie Mauresmo, Andy Murray’s new coach and winner in 2006:
The Australian-Serbian pair needed less than an hour to defeat 20 yr old Hao-Ching Chan and doubles veteran Max Mirnyi.
It is Sam second mixed doubles Wimbledon title (she claimed the 2008 title with Bob Bryan) and first for Zimonjic, who has the Australian Open and the French Open twice.
Big difference with the Federer-Edberg duo, Becker doesn’t hit with Djokovic, he just stands there, doing… not a lot.
