The End of Year 2: Part 3 – Centre Court Baby!

So much has happened in the last week that I feel the only way to do it justice is go over it bit by bit. The saga is on-going until it ends so who knows how many parts this will have…

Up at 5am to go to Wimbledon! I’d got very little sleep the night before thanks to Josh’s snoring! But we prevailed and joined the queue at 6:30am. We were 2200 in the queue already, and it was going to be a long wait…

After talking, playing tennis with a foil ball, listening to music, playing rummy and making the most of the freebies, we finally got into Wimbledon. Criddle knows everything about tennis, so he was our guide for the day. We watched a British girl playing in the first match, she unfortunately lost after 3 sets even though she was obviously the better player. She just couldn’t control her emotions and stay on top of the game when it mattered.

Then we went onto Henman Hill to watch the end of the Federer match. At one point it looked like Federer might loose, but he managed to claw it back, as he always does.

After that we watched a show court match and I saw a tennis player who has the best name ever: “Ramon Delgado”. That’s the new name of my alter-ego. The name in itself is a chat up line. No woman would ever be able to resist Ramon Delgado :D

Then, on our way to another court, we were given two tickets to centre court by two people just leaving! Two tickets! To centre court! We took it in turns to go in, and it was amazing! You have to see the pictures to get the full idea, but it was definitely the highlight of the day!

After that it was time to leave sadly. We had to get back to Guildford in time for Anne’s birthday the next day…

OK, so this post got a bit long, so next time I’ll talk about Anne’s birthday party…
