With Wimbledon in the books, here’s a look at some of the numbers that defined the tournament.

6: Women in the Open era (which began in 1968) who have won Wimbledon without dropping a set: Martina Navratilova (four times), Serena Williams (twice) and Chris Evert, Lindsay Davenport, Venus Williams and 2013 champion Marion Bartoli (once each).

47: Grand Slam appearances for Bartoli before winning one, a WTA record.

2: Women who have won a Slam title in the Open era without facing a top-15 seed: Bartoli and 1976 French Open champion Sue Barker.

1936: Last time, before this year, that a British man won Wimbledon. Andy Murray is the first since Fred Perry 77 years ago.

24: Consecutive match victories for Bob and Mike Bryan, who hold all four men's doubles Slams and Olympic gold after winning their third Wimbledon.

34-1: Rafael Nadal's record in the first round of Grand Slam tournaments, with the one loss coming to Steve Darcis at Wimbledon this year.

1997: Last time, before this year, that the reigning men's French Open champion lost in the first round of Wimbledon. Gustavo Kuerten lost to Justin Gimelstob 16 years ago.

1-20: Sergiy Stakhovsky's record against top-10 players, with the one victory coming against Roger Federer in the second round of Wimbledon.

1912: Last time, before this year, that no American men made the third round of Wimbledon.
