Wimbledon!

Postby Maxwell Shadow » Wed Jul 01, 2015 8:59 am

Any tennis fans out there?

Wimbledon started this week which is my absolute favourite tournament. I love the grass and the way that every match is different as the surface of the court changes depending on the weather.

Anyone else watching the coverage (all over the BBC if you live in the UK!) or following their favourite player's results?

I'm not able to watch this year due to my schedule, but I love tennis as well! Wimbledon is always exciting, and I love that it has the grass court as well. I'll try to follow the results best I can as their posted.

I took lessons on clay so that was my favorite surface to play on but grass and Wimbledon are absolutely my favorites to watch. It's so interesting to see how players have to adjust their games to the weather and wear and I love how some of the heritage has been preserved. I watch whenever I can!

I can't imagine playing in this heat! Been a scorcher today... us Brits just can't cope with this sort of weather!

Well done Heather Watson today :)

Was watching the most amazing match tonight between Dustin Brown and Rafa Nadal but I had to go to rehearsal and missed the very end! Don't you just hate it when that happens?! Sports Day at school tomorrow otherwise I'd be sitting in my office all day watching the tennis and not teaching.

Rafa is out! Isner vs Cilic match is O.O

Also, Kyrgios defeated Raonic. Dimitrov is also out! And it is just the second round.

Wimbledon final time...!

Sad that Andy Murray didn't manage to get through to the final this year but Federer was amazing on Friday and deserved to win the semi-final. I'm routing for Federer today as he's such a great player and would be great to see him lift the trophy again.

Also massive congrats to Serena Williams for winning yesterday (she's awesome) and to JK Rowling for slamming the haters yet again.
