Unsupervised, as a wee lil' tyke, I stumbled onto what I later found out was the Wimbledon final 1985- Kevin Curren vs. Boris Becker, then 17 years old and unseeded.
I had no idea what was going on, save the beauty of the scenery...I remember it all being sooo green
. I watched, transfixed for awhile and then it happened-
The red haired guy FLEW through the air, (
) and the crowd went postal! He got up, knees all bloody with a big smile on his face.
I remember thinking, "Wow, that guy can fly..."
I was instantly hooked and still am.
