Last Wednesday, I managed to go to Wimbledon, and sit on Centre Court thanks to an old tennis mad school friend.
Last year, Rob followed the tennis around the world, going to Davis Cup matches, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. Which is quite a feat really!
This year he's only at Wimbledon, but what tickets he managed to get. Centre Court, right in the middle behind the court. Lovely.
We got to see Serena Williams, Rafael Nadal and Robin Soderling play which were all very good to watch (and who all won). We also wandered around the grounds a bit to take in some of the outside courts.
And of course we had the obligatory Pimms and strawberries. :)
Wimbledon is such a great event, I love it - the atmosphere, the tennis, the whole Britishness of it that pervades the entire place.
Next year, I may even get around to getting my own tickets!
