It's been some years since I visited Wimbledon, but standing at Centre Court is an experience I will keep in mind for a long, long time. I was not really a big tennis fan before that, but had recently come to know some friends who were tennis-mad. Having spent some time with them, I had a growing appreciation of the game.
At Centre Court, there is a feeling of grandeur that seems to be lacking from other sports venues I've visited. It truly gives the feeling, standing at that spot, that this is a game of class and style.
During my stay in Wimbledon, the players began to arrive, and the air was electrified. The arrival of these top-notch tennis pros really lit up an otherwise sleepy part of London. I am glad, all these years later, to have that experience of the place.
