Before we dive in to the latest Wimbledon 2018 betting odds let's first take a look at how far this majestic tournament has come in its 130 year history.

Wimbledon began at the All England Club in 1877 and is the world’s oldest tennis tournament. It’s also the world’s highest paid tennis competition – this year there’s £28 million to be won. The winners of the men’s and women’s singles will pocket £2 million each and singles runners-up take home £1 million each.

The record for the most Championship won since professional players were included in 1968 is seven, jointly held by Pete Sampras (1993– 1995, 1997–2000) and Roger Federer (2003–2007, 2009, 2012).

Bjorn Borg 1976–1980) and Federer (2003–2007) jointly hold the record for the most consecutive victories – five. Martina Navratilova has won the Women’s Singles a record nine times and also shares a record of winning 20 Wimbledon titles (including doubles and mixed doubles) with Billie Jean King.

Martina Hingis became the youngest player to win a title at the age of 15 years 282 days in 1996 by winning the doubles championship. The record for the most aces served in a single championship is 212 by the Croatian player Goran Ivanisevic in 2001. The most aces served by a woman is 80, achieved by Serena Williams last year.

The fastest serve ever was by Taylor Dent in 2010, who hit a ball at 148 miles an hour. The fastest women’s serve was by Venus Williams in 2008 – at 129 miles an hour. The maximum number of people allowed in the grounds at any one time is 39,000. The attendance record for the 13 days of the tournament was set last year at 484,391.

Wimbledon 2018: Look at how much the Championships have changed since 1968

1968 was a year of revolution across the world with movements against the political and military elite taking place in a number of countries.

In the same year, tennis had its own revolution.

For the first time, professional players were allowed to compete in the Grand Slam tournaments - ushering in a new 'Open era' which marked the beginning of the modern game.

To mark the 50th anniversary, we take a visual and interactive look at how Wimbledon has evolved since 1968....

What led to the creation of the Open era?

Up until 1968 tennis was divided into professional and amateur circuits, meaning those paid to play were barred from competing in the Grand Slam tournaments.

However, it was widely known amateur players were being given clandestine payments at other tournaments - leading to it being dubbed as "shamateurism".

"They bargain for - and receive - exorbitant expenses to compete at many tournaments," Derek Penman, a Lawn Tennis Association councillor, said at the body's AGM in 1967.

"We must take action on our own account to make the game honest."

That action came in the form of the All England Club - whose chairman Herman David first proposed reform in 1959 and saw it rejected - teaming up with the LTA to finally convince members of the International Tennis Federation to vote in favour of allowing professionals to play alongside the amateurs.

"The move is made because the English are tired of the hypocrisy in the sport, the shamateurism that plagues high-class tennis," added Penman.

The Open era, which led to the increased professionalism and greater riches, was born.

Converting these earnings into modern-day money following the decimalisation of UK currency in 1971, and taking into account inflation, the 1968 men's champion, Rod Laver, received the equivalent of around £30,000.

Billie Jean King, who won the ladies' singles that year, won the equivalent of £11,000.

King, a 12-time Grand Slam singles champion, pioneered and fought for gender equality in tennis, eventually helping achieve another breakthrough: equal pay at the Grand Slams.

In 2007, Wimbledon offered women and men equal prize money for the first time, sums which have continued to rise at SW19.
