Tennis stars swapped their whites for ball gowns and black tie last night at the traditional Wimbledon Champions Dinner. The Champions Dinner was first held in 1977, and now takes place after the Men's Final. This year marks the first time it has been held at the Royal Opera House.
In keeping with the Wimbledon colour scheme, the Royal Opera House rolled out a purple carpet to welcome the 420 guests to the Paul Hamlyn Hall. Attendees included 2014 Men's Champion Novak Djokovic, fresh from his victory on centre court, and 2014 Ladies Champion Petra Kvitová.
