I'm really excited to share with you my photos from my day at Wimbledon last week. Wimbledon is a really special event, very quintessentially British and it was my first time there this year.
On the famous Henman Hill (or Murray Mount?) with Pimms. As you can see the weather wasn't amazing, there were patches of rain and there was the usual drama over whether or not to close the roof. If you haven't been to Wimbledon before, on centre court at lot of the audience is actually covered by the permanent roof but the players are not, so if it rains closing the roof is pretty important.
One of the matches we watched that afternoon. Serena Williams (now through to the final) here playing against Petra Kvitova in the ladies quarter finals on center court. This was a fairly short game, with very fast serves and few rallys. Serena won, of course.
When we were exploring the grounds we came across number 1 seed Novak Djokovic practicing. Other matches we saw that afternoon were Angelique Kerber vs Sabine Lesiki (Kerber won) and David Ferrer vs. Juan Martin del Potro (Ferrer won).
I loved taking pictures of the grounds. The flowers were really beautiful, as you can see below and in the first two pictures. You can see more photos and view my full album from the day on my flickr here.
Have you been to Wimbledon or are you following it on TV? I'm currently typing this in front of the TV watching Andy Murray in the semi-finals...come on, Murray!
