Who here has been to Wimbledon?

I went on Monday and saw Volandri play and win which was great for me

Also saw Bracciali play for a bit and win

Others to mention were Karlovic and Grosjean who are quality players.

I might go again friday too, not sure yet.

Re: Who here has been to Wimbledon?

I first went in 98 or 99? This year I'm going next Monday and Sunday.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

This girl in the first photo looks a lot like Patty Schnyder (unless it is her but what would she do in the queue :P ) !?

Good luck to: King Roger, Marat, Andre, Guga, Tim
