Wimbledon Attendance Mark Broken for Final Sunday
WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Wimbledon attracted a record crowd for the final Sunday of the Grand Slam tournament.

The All England Club said Monday that 32,036 spectators came through the gates Sunday, which featured Rafael Nadal's straight-sets victory over Tomas Berdych in the men's final.

The figure beat the previous record of 30,867 on the final Sunday last year.

Overall attendance for the two-week tournament was 489,946. That's the second-highest total for 13 days, behind 511,043 last year.
