Retired tennis star Goran Ivanisevic recalls winning Wimbledon a decade ago.

The big-serving Croat was unseeded as he entered the tournament in 2001, and says his sponsors provided him with minimal equipment.

"My sponsors... thought I was going to lose first round," Ivanisevic explained to Jonathan Overend on BBC Radio 5 live.

"They sent me [just] two shirts!" the former Wimbledon wildcard continued.

"I was washing those two shirts after every match! I played the whole of Wimbledon with two shirts and the same socks."
