Wimbledon: Tech behind world's most prestigious tennis tournament
We tour the bunkers beneath the grass courts of Wimbledon to find out how and why every single swing and miss of the tournament is recorded.
Wimbledon is in full flow here in London, with the cream of the world's tennis talent battling it out for the £1.76 million ($3 million, AU$3.2 million) top prizes.
Fat cheques aside, the tournament is a rich set of figures: 38,500 people can fit in the Wimbledon grounds at any one time, and throughout the tournament 300,000 cups of tea, 28,000kg of strawberries and 7,000 litres of cream are served.
Tech is integral to the tournament's smooth running. A finely tuned infrastructure, manned by tennis professionals and programmers, lurks below the surface, logging every single racket swing, ball bounce and footfall.
I caught up with IBM in the bunkers beneath the hallowed green turf to find out more.
Why? Well, that data is being constantly pushed out, not only to the scoreboards on-site, but to Wimbledon's website, its app and to every news outlet and TV station covering the event. This ensures they have the latest facts and figures when presenting live on camera.
This board of information, for example, will be in front of the BBC's presenters, allowing them to give informed analysis on the matches to viewers and radio listeners here in the UK.
378 million TV viewers across 198 countries will tune in to Wimbledon, so it's vital that all stats are spot-on.
A large part of the data input is done by skilled tennis players. Although anyone can learn the rules of the game, IBM relies on these players to accurately and quickly identify faults and winners, and how they happened.
The "Social Command Centre" may sound terrifyingly dystopian, but it's a handy on-screen display that tells the team the gender, locations and various other things about the people who are tweeting about Wimbledon.
This board, named "Keys to the match" gives insight into what each player needs to do in order to progress to the next round. This information is passed on to broadcasters who can use it to give analysis on-air.
It uses 41 million bits of data from previous games to attempt to accurately predict the outcomes of each match if the players hit these goals.
All photos taken by official photographers are automatically uploaded to Wimbledon's systems and are edited by professionals in the bunker before being published. I, however, have to edit my own photos.
Tickets to Centre Court cost a fortune, but a cheaper grounds ticket will let you sit on this large grassy hill and watch the big screen. It's known informally these days as Murray Mound, after British tennis ace and current mens' champion Andy Murray.
