The 2016 Wimbledon Championships concluded on Sunday, wrapping up the 139th year of the world’s oldest tennis competition. Despite rain delays at the start of the tournament, players pressed on, celebrities filled the seats, and fans brought costumes, umbrellas, and good spirits. Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer was bested in the semi-finals by Milos Raonic, Andy Murray of Scotland took home the men’s singles trophy and Serena Williams tied the open-era world record of 22 grand slams after winning the women’s singles title.*

* This article has been updated to clarify that Williams tied for the grand-slam world record in the modern era of tennis; Margaret Court secured 24 wins during her career, which started before the sport entered its “open era” in 1968.
