3- Fastest Serve- Sam Groth of Australia clocking 163.4 mph (that’s just insane).

6- Tiffany and Co. - This famous jewelry brand makes the US OPEN trophy. 
7- Rufus the hawk- Patrols the skies over Wimbledon (keeping pigeons away). Here Rufus with Murray :)

9- Serena Williams Disqualification- Disqualified from US OPEN ’09 for spatting with the line umpire.
10- Roger Federer (my idol has to feature here lol)- Won ’17 Wimbledon without dropping a set, first time after ’76 (Borg won the title then).
