With just one sleep to my only chance of seeing a Wimbledon final, I’ve managed to dismiss the disappointment of the Hungarian Australian English lady losing and started my in depth research on tomorrow’s ladies’ final.
Venus was very nice about the partisan British crowd during her semi final win and actually has quite a nice smile. She’s also won a lot of tennis matches over the last couple of decades.
I’ve never heard of her opponent Miss Muguruza. It seems she’s six foot tall, Venezuelan, lives in Switzerland, has won $11m in prize money and scrubs up well in a bikini.
On balance, I think I’m backing youth over experience. Bikini over smile. Hispanic over Yank. But whatever happens, I’ll eat strawberries and cream, apply factor 30 and clap politely. It’s the right thing to do!
