#10 Wimbledon!

9 Jul

The world famous tennis tournament right on our doorstep! This is our second year living in Wimbledon and we missed out on tickets last year. The ballot process is complex and there is no favouritism for residents of SW19. Boo.

BUT, this year we managed to get two Centre Court tickets! Six rows from the front and next to the Royal Box! I called Nick with the amazing news, only to be told that he was in Paris that weekend because his friend got four tickets for the Euros. So my friend Sarah inherited the second ticket and we were excited!

Wimbledon is much more sophisticated than I thought it would be. I’ve been to the US Open and it was a great day out, but this was something different. Staff in pristine uniform, immaculate grounds, and it just had a feel of grandness and history.

And the proof we were there? Check out the lady in the black hat… yours truly! Sarah is sitting in white to the left. Yep, that is Roger Federer! πŸ™‚

We also got to see Novak Djokovic, see if you can spot him in photos below!

    Laura you photos and comments really do bring back memories I went to Wimbledon in 1977! It was the Queens Silver Jubilee and I got tickets on Centre Court to see champion Aussies play. The strawberries and cream look very familiar and it’s great to hear the British high standards still apply. Love, Mum πŸ‘©πŸ»πŸΈπŸΎπŸŒžπŸ§πŸ‡³πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ’πŸ‘©πŸ»xox
