Please join us in conversation if you enjoy Wimbledon - it is just 2 weeks of the years and greatly enjoyed by it’s fans.

Emma Raducanu is winding up her game and is poised to take the first Set. ?

We certainly do love Wimbledon! And it's been a really good first day which is far from over!

Enjoy smile

Brilliant match on BBC2 between Struff and Alcaraz, so glued I'm not watching Emmablush.

Andy Murray later; what a great first day.

This first match of the 2nd set is giving me palpitations!

Can you see my sister, centre court, third row, next to a woman with a blue shirt?

Callistemon21 Mon 27-Jun-22 17:49:07

I asked for my thread to be deleted, which GNHQ has done, thank you.

Sorry C .

These two young women can produce great strokes but there seem to be quite a few unforced errors from them both too.

Is your sister one of the 3 women who are sporting union flag umbrella hats Pamela ? ?

Pittcity Mon 27-Jun-22 17:56:50

I'm hooked already. Looking forward to being there next week!

Thank you for starting this new thread for the tennis lovers!
Really enjoying this first day and looking forward to Andy later, is it going to be another all-nighter? I might have to watch Stan the Man for a while, I think this tournament might be a Last Hurrah for him and a few others, but I hope not. I’ll have to watch one match on tv and the other on my iPad!

You lucky person Pittcity . It will be fantastic ? ?

Well done! What a brilliant shot to end with.

Such a lovely little player

J52 Mon 27-Jun-22 18:18:28

Well done Emma, not an easy match, but she smashed it!

Best fortnight of the year. Love it all especially when we manage to get lucky in the draw for tickets. Sadly not this year though.
