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.

50-1: Federer's new record in second-round matches at Slams.

36: Federer's record streak of major quarterfinals, which ended at the All England Club.

17: Consecutive major quarterfinals for Novak Djokovic, the new longest-active streak.

4: Reigning French Open champions Sabine Lisicki has defeated at Wimbledon, all in her last four appearances: Svetlana Kuznetsova (2009), Li Na (2011), Maria Sharapova (2012) and Serena Williams (2013). Lisicki missed the tournament in 2010.

19-5: Lisicki's record at Wimbledon.

16-15: Lisicki's record at the other three majors combined.

WERTHEIM: 50 parting thoughts from Wimbledon

10: Combined number of the top-10 men's (six) and women's (four) seeds who made the third round, matching the worst performance at a major in the Open era.

9: Singles retirements/walkovers in the second round, equaling the most in any round in a major in the Open era. Seven came on Day 3, believed to be a single-day record.

7: Former No. 1 players who were eliminated on Day 3: Federer, Lleyton Hewitt, Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka (who withdrew), Caroline Wozniacki, Jelena Jankovic and Ana Ivanovic.

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