London is also the city where many historic moments are made. Let’s now journey back to a few years when London unfurled some historic moments in Wimbledon Tennis Tournament that is still green in the memory of people from all over the world.

One such London moment was the episode of Cliff Richard singing in the rain during the Wimbledon matches in 1996, when an uncalled for rain suddenly interrupted the game. It so happened that as soon as the rain halted the play of the men’s quarter finals the crowd got restive. In no time  Cliff Richard broke into an impromptu sing-a-long. The crowd enjoyed the performance immensely that tennis players Pam Shriver and Martina Navratilova too joined the chorus instantly.

John McEnroe’s temper: A similar Tennis related incident was when the US tennis player John McEnroe lost his temper while playing against Tom Gullokson. McEnroe was fined and was about to be asked to leave the tournament following a spat with the umpire. What followed was Mc Enroe smashing his racket on the floor.

Streaking: The Men’s final streaker in 1996 was too hard to forget. When the men’s final match was about to start, Melissa Johnson dashed into the court wearing nothing but an apron! The 23 year old Melissa was a staffer on a pizza stand in Wimbledon. She interrupted the match amidst shouts. Those playing were  Richard Krajicek and MaliVai Washington. It was a laughter riot as soon as the players and the crowd understood the funny side of the streak show.
