Annabel Jenkins, PR Account Assistant has written about her experience at Wimbledon this year.
Having applied year on year for the public ballot, my mum managed to score two Centre Court tickets for the first Saturday. As luck would have it, she couldn’t make that day so offered them to me.
My friend and I arrived just in time to see the start of Federer’s match against Aussie Sam Groth which was great. We then wandered over to a completely packed Henman Hill (or Murray Mound I should probably say) to watch some of James Ward’s match. The atmosphere was just incredible, everyone was 100% behind the British number two and it was such a sad moment to see him lose out on a place in the next round.
The absolute highlight of the day was watching Andy Murray, particularly the five ‘pink t-shirt’ lads who got the whole of Centre Court doing the Mexican wave! After a few shaky games with an injured shoulder, the Brit came out on top – much to the delight of the crowd!
All in all, a perfectly British summer’s day at the All England Lawn Tennis club!
