I remember 1995 and I've read somewhere it was also the case in 1976 I guess

I think they said on the BBC this morning that only six times in it's history has Wimbledon had no rain at all during the fortnight.

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

I know that 1993 was a very hot summer... I think it could be possible.

Fairly certain 1976 was dry the whole way through -- and one of the hottest Wimbledons ever, too.
