We were lucky enough to win tickets to Wimbledon in the public ballot and even luckier that the tickets were for the second row of Centre Court!

It was a great day of tennis with the Ladies quarter-finals and just amazing to be up so close to such a tennis star as Serena Williams.

Serena Williams in action

Serena Williams gracious in victory

Here's the most expenseive roof (£80m) from the outside …

….and here it is from the inside.
They must be gutted that after spending so much money they have only got to use it once so far!

Mine's bigger than yours

I know it was hot but really, what has that man got on his head? His children will be so embarrassed when they see that!
