TWM @ SW19

It is good time to be in Europe if you want to attend any of the sporting events. I happened to be at SW19 and attend the middle Saturday schedule of play for Wimbledon 2011. There are some (approx 1500) tickets available daily for the show courts (Centre Court, Court 1, Court 2). So, I was there on the night before, on Friday, but unfortunately my queue card number was 1900+. Braving the night chill and non stop drizzle, the buzz at dawn lifted the tired spirit and once inside, the first player I see was Roger Federer. That started a great day at Wimbledon. Minutes later, I was at close proximity to one of the greatest athlete, Roger. Great feeling !



Sachin Tendulkar was also there on that day but I came to know only later. There was a good crowd on all courts, that's something noteworthy, as anything you do here, you will get the support and acknowledgement. I watched the Paes and Bhupathi doubles match for some time. Bhupathi particularly was doing lot of unforced errors, finally the duo lost in spite of having the advantage of an early set lead. It was a memorable day at Wimbledon and ended with the traditional strawberry & cream free treat. May be one day, I'll return for a Centre Court experience.



So now I am very excited to try a few forehand & backhand shots, will try to book a court this weekend!!

Leaving you with a video of Federer, cheers.

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl
