History of Indians Playing at Wimbledon:

Bangalore, Tue July 14,2015
In cricket-crazy India, tennis has a long history. In fact, Indians have been participating at Wimbledon since 1908, decades before the country gained independence from British rule. The tournament started in 1877.
Three Indian champions in a single Wimbledon tournament, made 2015 the country's best year at the world's oldest tennis competition. Over the weekend, July 11-12,2015 Indian tennis players Sania Mirza, Leander Paes and Sumit Nagal, won some of the most prestigious Grand Slam titles in the ladies' doubles, mixed doubles and boys' doubles categories respectively.
Playing along with 34-year-old Martina Hingis, Sania Mirza, became the first Indian woman to clinch a women's doubles Grand Slam trophy. The victory came Mirza's way a decade after she first played at the tournament in 2005.A vintage Leander Paes (42) clinched his 16th Grand Slam trophy, winning the mixed doubles event at Wimbledon with his partner Martina Hingis after a dominating win over Alexander Peya and Timea Babos on Sunday.
Nagal grabbed the headlines when the 17-year-old partnered Vietnam's Nam Hoang Ly to win the boys doubles trophy. The eight seeds beat fourth seeds Reilly Opelka and Akira Santillan 7 -6(4) 6-4 in the title clash that lasted 63 minutes.
India has never had it so good at Wimbledon. In 2015, with three titles on the center court here, Leander Paes, Sania Mirza and young Sumit Nagal brought a lot of cheer to the Indian fans who came out in good numbers to support their tennis heroes. With three Indians rising to the occasion and achieving glory at the holy grail of tennis, the Indian tennis fraternity had a lot to cheer about.

History of Indians Playing at Wimbledon:
When we look back the History of Wimbledon, The participation from India (Both British-India and independent India,) to Wimbledon is commendable. I give below the names who participated from India.
Sirdar Nihal Singh was the first: he played three Wimbledon tournaments between 1908 and 1910, in both the singles and doubles category. In 1910, Singh reached the third round in the men's singles category, his best performance in the three years he played at Wimbledon.
In 1921 after The All India Lawn tennis Association (AILTA), India made its debut at the Davis Cup reaching the semifinals of the tournament. One among among the team at the Davis Cup that year, Sydney Jacob, a British civil servant, represented India in seven Wimbledon tournaments between 1914 and 1923
At Wimbledon 2015, the third among the"three musketeers", as they have been dubbed by Indian media, was Nagal, who along with his Vietnamese team mate Nam Hoang Ly beat Japanese-American duo. The win comes more than 60 years after Ramanathan Krishnan became India's first junior Wimbledon champion to win the boys' singles championship. His son, Ramesh Krishnan followed suit in 1979, when he won the same title.
Vijay Amritraj, played 90 games across categories in 18 consecutive Wimbledon tournaments between 1972 and 1990. Amritraj now 61, now provides commentary for Wimbledon games shown on Indian television. Amritraj in 1981 reached the quarterfinals in all three categories: men's single, doubles and mixed doubles. In the singles category that year, he was defeated by American tennis legend Jimmy Connors.
The list of tennis veterans is incomplete without Mahesh Bhupathi, the first Indian to win a Grand Slam tournament in 1997 at the French Open in the men's doubles category. Two years later along with Paes, Bhupathimade it to the doubles finals in all four Grand Slams in the world, winning two of the four at Wimbledon and the Roland Garros, the French Open. At the Australian Open and the U.S. Open the duo finished second.
