Wimbledon

The most prestigous tennis event is about to get underway in London. The Championships, or more commonly known as Wimbledon is the event that every tennis player dreams about. It’s all about the tradition, which is evident the second you approach the All England Tennis & Croquet Club. There is the beautiful rustic gates at entry, scent of the plants, perfectly kept grounds, grass courts, the all-white attire, Henman Hill (or Murray Mound post 2013 after Andy’s victory), Pimms, strawberry’s and cream, the club house and not to mention the chance meeting with royalty. The centre court at Wimbledon has seen some of the most memorable tennis matches in history. I was inspired by the matches played by Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Martina Hingis and Venus Williams and more recently the 2008 men’s final between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. That is one of my favourite matches of all time.

I am looking forward to this year’s event as it will surely be another magnificent display of high quality tennis and athleticism.
