Sunday Snaps - 1

This is the first of an occasional series, where I will post photos that Dori or I have taken on our travels. As today is also the day when the first match is played under the new roof at Wimbledon's Centre Court, where better place to start than with a couple of snaps that we took when we were lucky enough to get tickets for last year's Championships.

This is a view of the Centre Court, taken from what is colloquially known as 'Henman Hill', named after Britain's former top tennis player Tim Henman. The picture quality isn't brilliant as it was taken towards the sun on my mobile (cell) phone!

And this is a shot taken from our seats in Centre Court before the play began.

As it happened, we were able to see both the eventual men's and women's champions on that day - Rafa Nadal and Venus Williams, as well as current British No.1 Andy Murray. It was a fantastic day and we hope to experience the Wimbledon atmosphere again in the next few years.
Check out Dori's take on the whole day over at her blog.

I'm glad you had a good time. I pretty much enjoy watching all kinds of sports except tennis & golfing. Sorry, they are just not for me :o)

Yes, we had a wonderful day - strawberries & cream 'n all :-) And, hey, we all have our likes and dislikes. Wouldn't the world be a boring place if we were all the same!
