Me, Lorraine, Kaj and Wendy or as Kaj likes to call us “The Riff-Raffs”
Henman Hill / Murray Mount,
Wimbeldon Lawn Tennis Championships 2009
At The All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, Wimbeldon
01 July 2009
Managed to get in for only £5, an absolute bargain
Pimm’s and Strawberries of course
Who were playing?
Quarter Final match between Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick
£2 bet between me and Wendy on me winning the bet if Roddick wins and Wendy winning the bet if Hewitt did
Roddick and me 🙂
Highlight of the day?
After the end of the match as we were making our way out, we saw Tim Henman and John McEnroe being interviewed live on the balcony of the building right in front of us. Kaj sensing a photo opportunity, shouted at McEnroe the infamous lines “You cannot be serious, John”… McEnroe and Henman were both distracted by Kaj heckling John that they turned and waved down at us. Kaj was too starstruck waving at McEnroe that she forgot to take a pic. But she managed to take a pic of Henman waving at us
All the bars and restaurants in the Wimbeldon “Vill-aaj” was packed but we managed to find a really nice looking bar called “The Common Room”
Couldn’t have been any better, everything from the weather, the Pimm’s and strawberries, the company and even the tennis was perfect
Would I do it again?
Hell yeah, but would love to get my hands on “Centre court” tickets next time
