one word for the day......ACE!!

A couple of Saturdays ago mum came to visit cos we had tickets for Wimbledon.

We won tickets in the raffle they do and thought we had tickets for the doubles finals but cos of all the bad weather they'd been having we ended up with men's semi-finals with Rafael Nadal v Novak Djokovic, then the ladies doubles semi-finals and the veterans mens doubles with Pat Cash and Krajicek v Woodbridge and Woodforde it was such a good match, a great laugh compared to the other more serious matches we'd seen earlier! Pat Cash was brilliant tho i would have hated to play against him or eve on his team! As soon as he came on the court he nicked the other teams chairs and then later on threw the bags with all their spare rackets and stuff off the court. The poor ball boys and ball girls had to go round collecting all the stuff and clearing up after Cash! After that match we thought that was it so we got ready to leave but cos the men's semi-finals had finished early (cos Djokovic was injured) they decided to do another veterans match, this time with Goran Ivanisevic so mum and i sat down again very quickly!!! we only got to see the 1st set tho cos mum had to get to euston to catch her train. it was a great day tho and i cant wait for next year! even if i dont get tickets ill go and que for ages and sit on henman hill i think and watch the big screens with a picnic. :)
