. . . . . . . . .
last week, i was incredibly lucky and we snagged centre court tickets for the wimbledon men’s semi-finals. ever since i can remember, i’ve loved watching wimbledon on television. and i do believe that last july, the fact that wimbledon had ended the week before influenced my decision to accept the offer to move to london. i’ve always loved it – the history, the grass courts, the unbelievable stories that often come out of this tournament.
we had a really fantastic day; perfect weather, exciting matches, great seats, strawberries and cream, pimms cup, elegantly dressed spectators, everything. we saw berdych defeat djokovic, and nadal beat andy murray (not surprisingly, the brits in that stadium were quite vocal supporters of murray, which made it a really fun match. i still cheered loudly for nadal). it felt very different from the u.s. open in NYC.
i thought i would share a lot of the photos with you today – as you can see, i was really awestruck by the entire experience and so i took a lot of them. this was one of those days where i sort of pinched myself, marveling at my good fortune to have this opportunity to live in london, to experience these things.
(and nadal won it all, so that makes it even sweeter – above, you can see a photo that i snapped right after he won a place in the final)
