A lady I see regularly at the gym’s pool surprised me recently with an invitation to join her for the second day of Wimbledon, as she had a spare ticket for Number One Court. I was both unbelievably touched that she’d thought to ask me and unbelievably excited.
We saw Ashleigh Barty (the ladies’ number 1 seed), Johanna Konta (the British number 1 and seeded 19. We saw her play back in 2017) and my favourite male tennis player, Rafa Nadal.
We ended up watching around 8 hours worth of tennis, with a few comfort breaks and time for a drink and afternoon tea.
We knew it was time to leave when we found ourselves quietly chatting rather than actually watching the action on the court – that was at 9 pm!
