I love Wimbledon.
There's something about 'The Championships' that really stand out for me. I think it is the whole ocassion of it. The whole atmosphere that comes along with it.
I have so many great memories of staying up late in School Holidays whilst listening to Newk and Rochey commentate on the various Aussies and their tout at the biggest prize in tennis.
I remember the Cashy Days, the Masur days, The Rafter Days and now the Poo and Hewitt days.
I love riding that emotional wave of a match with the players, crowd and commentators (just a little biased!)
Normally I am not that fussed about tennis. I rarely care about the other grand slams, although the Aussie Open is excellent to watch too.
One day I will get to Wimbledon's centre court, but that will also be when I get to Lords to watch an Ashes match, Anfield to watch a Liverpool match, and Monaco to watch the Grand Prix!
Anyway, Go Lleyton Hewitt. You can beat that Swiss, headband wearing punce!
Bring on the final where I can stay up till 4am cheering you on!
