Wimbledon 2015 – Day 5

Tennis in SW19 never fails to excite the nation and unite us in supporting the Brits.

My only visit to SW19 this year was to Centre Court.

Wimbledon 2015

I managed to get tickets in the ballot and was delighted with the matches being played on on Day 5:

GENTLEMEN’S SINGLES – THIRD ROUND
Richard Gasquet (FRA) [21] defeated Grigor Dimitrov (BUL) [11] (6-3 6-4 6-4)

GENTLEMEN’S SINGLES – THIRD ROUND
Novak Djokovic (SRB) [1] defeated Bernard Tomic (AUS) [27] (6-3 6-3 6-3)

LADIES’ SINGLES – THIRD ROUND
Serena Williams (USA) [1] defeated Heather Watson (GBR) (6-2 4-6 7-5)

How fortunate were we to be in Centre Court for what I consider to be the match of the year – Williams v Watson.  The atmosphere was electric.  The majority of the spectators were supporting our home girl, Heather Watson.  The game was so incredibly close and (bias I may be) Heather so nearly won!

I think this little clip shows the level of excitement.

A beautifully hot day where fans and sunscreen was the order of the day for players and spectators alike.  A wonderful little video across Centre Court at the fluttering of fans.

And, of course, time to visit the No 1 Ball girl at Wimbledon again.  My wonderful Abi.  I think this slo-mo video shows you the extent to which they are trained and professional.
