Testing the new roof at Wimbledon

We left home this morning in a shower of rain, and arrived at Wimbledon in a cold blustery wind.

















We saw the new roof cover the centre court - eight minutes of stop-start - then watched Tim Henman, Kim Cluysters, Andre Agassi and Steffi Graff play doubles and singles.
























When we emerged .... yes, it had been raining. We were blissfully unaware that, for the first time, rain didn't stop play. (The roof was deployed for final testing, rather than to shelter the court.)

















Lunch was a decent but pricey sandwich, and filthy coffee; if you're heading for Wimbledon this summer, my advice would be to take your own food.

Take your own, all to often the case.

You very lucky people! I tried to get tickets, but couldn't even get onto the website, it was that busy...

Hope you had a great time, with the exception of the food.

How funny you saw this game of Clijsters Henman that I read about in the papers. Hope you have fun with that Miele oven, and that you keep posting about it!
