Wimbledon: The 2004 Official Film features the championship runs of Roger Federerer and Maria Sharapova. While beating Andy Roddick was just another day at the office for the top-ranked Federerer, Russian teen Sharapova turned heads by offering a fresh new face on the women's tour, and it didn't hurt a bit that the face looked like that of a model--"Anna Kournikova with a title," she was quickly dubbed. Other moments of the fortnight captured here include Goran Ivanesevic's farewell, the scoring controversy that might have cost Venus Williams a match, and--because this is a British production--Tim Henman's latest attempt to keep the Wimbledon crown at home. At only 52 minutes, however, there's not a whole lot of time to devote to actual game footage, and the camera has a dizzying habit of cutting to a close-up of a player in the middle of a point, making it hard to follow the action. The short running time makes Wimbledon: The 2004 Official Film feel somewhat like a relic from the VHS days, but it certainly looks good in anamorphic widescreen. --David Horiuchi

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money September 12, 2007
Total ripoff. Less than an hour including extras, more shots of crowd members than players, and the boring voice-over frequently reminding us that this is the only tennis tournament that really matters doesn't help a whit. A truly pointless dvd with very little tennis. Summing up hundreds of matches in about 30 minutes of footage? You do the math.
Might be worth buying only if you were there and hope to see yourself in the many audience shots. Otherwise, with barely any tennis on the disc, what's the point? Pure fluff.
Go instead to the infinitely better Classic Matches at Wimbledon series; the Borg/Mac 1980 dvd has more quality in five minutes than this does in 55, and costs half as much.
Passola.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long live Maria! July 4, 2004
By A Customer
Maria Sharapova is the best thing to hit tennis in years. In the early rounds of Wimbledon 2004, she was being compared to Anna Kournikova because of her physical beauty, but she's now gone where Anna never went by winning the big one, Wimbledon, at a mere 17 years old. (We all know Anna never won a tournament, but give her a bit of credit--she was ranked #6 in the world at one point.) Maria's powerful game, her passion for playing, and her refreshingly genuine personality make her a worthy champion and someone we look forward to watching climb the world rankings in the months and years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Wimbledon "collection", as always August 6, 2011
By Helen
Verified Purchase
It's not so easy to buy some of these collections of earlier years - Wimbledon website seems to offer them briefly and then they mostly disappear and you have to look elsewhere. So I expect I was fortunate to get this - and I am still frustratedly searching for the 2003 collection but it seems totally unobtainable. I can't understand why Wimbledon can't still make it available.

I can't imagine any tennis fan would want to be without these splendid annual collections. In this one Federer of course thrillingly wins his second Wimbledon and if I recall rightly that was his 3rd Grand Slam out of the record 16 he now has.

So far, I've only looked at his matches shown on the DVD as earlier today was my first chance to view the DVD, but from jumping through other parts, clearly wonderful memories will be brought back..... Henman, Ivanisovic, Lleyton Hewitt, and the Williams sisters to name but a few. And the usual background information, including the persistent rain that led to play on the first Sunday and a rain-interrupted men's final.

One of the most iconic images of Wimbledon is of course its centre court with the various champions receiving their trophies. The other has to be grey skies and all the courts with their green covers drawn over as the rain pours down "again".... No roof on the centre court yet, of course.

Highly recommended.
