Jamie Delgado sets men's record by playing at Wimbledon for 23rd straight year

LONDON - Britain's Jamie Delgado set a men's record Wednesday by playing at Wimbledon for the 23rd consecutive year.

The 37-year-old Delgado and Gilles Muller of Luxembourg won their first-round doubles match 2-6, 2-6, 7-6 (3), 6-3, 6-2 over Lu Yen-hsun of Taiwan and Divij Sharan of India.

The International Tennis Federation said Delgado played junior Wimbledon tournaments from 1992-95 and played in Wimbledon men's singles or doubles from 1995 to 2014.

Delgado is not playing singles this year.

Delgado shared the Wimbledon men's mark of 22 years in a row with Mark Knowles of the Bahamas. Knowles played men's doubles last year but is only entered in an exhibition doubles event this year.

The longest consecutive Wimbledon streaks are held by two women — Virginia Wade played 26 years in a row and Martina Navratilova 24.
