No. 2 Court is a tennis court at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Wimbledon, London. Unlike the other three Grand Slam events, Wimbledon does not name its main courts after famous players, choosing instead to use numbers, with the exception of Centre Court.
Old No. 2 Court
The original number 2 Court had a capacity of 2,192 + 770 standing and was informally referred to as the Graveyard of Champions until it was renumbered as the No. 3 Court from the 2009 Championships. The Court itself was then demolished to make way for a new No. 3 court and new Court 4 ready for the 2011 Championships.
The Graveyard of Champions tag was coined as many former champions fell to ignominious defeats on the No. 2 Court, including:
New Number 2 court
For the 2009 Championships, a new show court was built on the site of the previous No. 13 court. This new court was renamed as No. 2 court and the capacity is 4,000. This meant that the "Graveyard of Champions" court became No. 3 Court and all other courts were subsequently renumbered in the same way.
