A fantastic thing happen to me yesterday. Our neighbour had a spare ticket to the Centre Court at Wimbledon and she offered it to me! How cool is that! It was my first ever time at Wimbledon championship, and now that I’ve been there, hope is was not the last one! Everything was very English: straw hats, Pimms and strawberries and cream.
It was a great experience! Although I don’t play tennis myself, I do watch Wimbledon on TV occasionally. But nothing compares to actually being there! It is a big event and even if you don’t have the tickets to Center Court or Court No.1, you can still watch a lot of other matches played on other courts or watch main matches on a big screen while eating your picnic and drinking champagne.
We watched really good matches too. First it was Andy Roddick v. Michale Llodra, then Venus Williams v. Ekaterina Makarova and Novak Djokovic v. Taylor Dent. We also witnessed 2 records set: the fastest serve at Wimbledon by Taylor Dent (it was 148 m/h and that was incredibly fast!) and the longest match ever played. John Isner (USA) and Nicholas Mahut (FRA) have already played for 10 hours, and they will continue to play today.
What a day!
