For reasons that bemuse me, many Americans insist on mispronouncing the world-famous tennis tournament, held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, with a ‘t’ instead of a ‘d’. The fact that Google’s autocomplete tries to offer you ‘Wimbleton’ search results, because so many make the mistake, is very telling.

For the avoidance of doubt, let me clarify. Wimbledon, not Wimbleton!
