The 2023 Wimbledon Men’s Final on July 16 drew a star-studded crowd, with celebrities from all over the world, including Hollywood A-lister Brad Pitt and members of actual royalty, gracing the event. While it’s not uncommon for Wimbledon to attract famous faces, this year’s SW19 climax seemed to be bursting at the seams with celebrities.
The main attraction of the final was the intense five-hour, five-set match between 20-year-old Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic. Alcaraz, the top-seeded upstart, triumphed over the seven-time Wimbledon champion, denying Djokovic’s quest to match the current record of 24 Grand Slam titles and breaking his streak of four successive Wimbledon victories. This victory signifies the emergence of the Alcaraz era in tennis, disrupting the domination that Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal have maintained over the sport for the past two decades.
Now, let’s dive into the noteworthy celebrities who attended the event, making Wimbledon’s center court the place to be for tennis-loving A-listers. One notable absence, however, was Shakira.
Brad Pitt was in attendance, sporting his signature unbuttoned polo shirt and aviators, accompanied by Snatch director Guy Ritchie, who rocked a safari-inspired two-piece ensemble. Sir Ian McKellen, known for his role in Lord of the Rings, arrived at SW19 looking dapper, though perhaps not as much as when he bid farewell to Middle-earth in the Grey Havens.
Emma Watson and her husband Alex were also spotted, fully engrossed in the thrilling match from their seats. Meanwhile, Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz secured themselves a spot in the royal box, a move befitting the suave 007 agent. Nick Jonas endured the humid weather in SW19 while looking sharp in a three-piece suit.
Members of the royal family, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte, made their way to Wimbledon, adding to the regal ambiance of the event. Benedict Cumberbatch, an unexpected presence at a sporting event, seemed to fit right in at Wimbledon, with his last name even sounding reminiscent of the tournament itself.
Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina Dhowre Elba garnered attention by sporting a green and white open-collared Nigeria shirt, showcasing their unique style. Lily James, known for her role in Cinderella, donned a double-striped co-ord and navy blue blazer, perfectly suited for the Wimbledon final.
Ariana Grande, amidst rumors surrounding her marriage to Dalton Gomez, was seen without a wedding ring alongside Andrew Garfield and Jonathan Bailey. The absence of the ring fueled speculation among Twitter users.
