On Monday, the tennis world's most prestigious tournament, Wimbledon, kicked off, and has already undergone perhaps the most eventful opening week in its history. The Championships have been held at the famed All-England Club since 1877, and remains a bastion of idiosyncratically English sports tradition. With its trademark grass courts, all-white dress code, timeless aesthetic and, well, its "Englishness," Wimbledon is uniquely photogenic, and Magnum photographers have visited the tournament throughout the decades.
