Wimbledon... 2012...

Wimbledon... 2012...

"Sizzling"...

"Edgy"...

Even... "Ruthless"... were some of the adjectives mentioned... describing the players yesterday...

"Rule Brittania... for now... Enjoy it while it lasts"...

Andy Murray... and four other British players made it to the second round... of the tournament...

Exciting news for Britain... indeed...

Wimbledon...

25th of June... to 8th of July... is the oldest tennis tournament... the most distinguished and prestigious... in the world.

With its proud and excellent traditions... which include...

Strict... all-white... dress code for the players...

The charming ritual... of having strawberries and cream... for the spectators...

As well as its... Royal patronage.

It is also notable... above all other tournaments... for the lack of advertising and sponsors around the courts... which makes the game... truly elegant...

Having watched Nadal win at Roland Garros... we're more than excited to go through the deliciously nerve-racking experience for the next two weeks... at Wimbledon...

Of course... Federer... a favourite... will be watched with much admiration for his exquisite style... Nadal for the savage beauty he displays.. in his...

Not forgetting... our own French "des fraises et de la crème fraîche"... with possibly a chilled bottle of champagne added...

We'll be watching with...

Trepidation...

Fascination...

Our... favourite players...

Our... heroes...

Willing... them...

To... win...

Hail...

Wimbledon...
