Many thanks for purchasing this very special issue of Frankie's News.
Please let me introduce myself: I am Frankie of Frankie's News and I wish to share with you all some of the photos I took on day one of the famous tournament held in a place called Wimbledon.
Let me start by saying that it wasn't easy: I arrived at the gates at 5.45am to begin queuing in the hope of getting a ticket for Centre Court (yeah I am an optimist) or at least one of the other main show courts. I will do anything to get a good story or a fabulous photo for my devoted readers. (You can thank me later).
On arrival my heart slightly sank at the sight of all those who had camped out over night and were already in a long line in the fields (opposite the main site) where the queuing begins.
I was handed a queue card which stated that I was number 2085 in the queue. (#?%$!!)
However, I decided to remain positive. And it wasn't all bad. Okay, so the toilets had run out of loo roll but this was more than made up for when I spotted Tim "the Tiger" Henman doing a Robinson's Drink promotion only a few yards away from the queue line.
This photo was taken at approximately 9.30am (I bet Tim didn't have to get up at some unholy hour!) and by this time I'd been queuing for a fair while so seeing my nation's last big hope lifted my spirits. And the free cup of orange squash helped quench my thirst!
(Readers from the UK may recognise Alisha Dixon - the 2007 Strictly Come Dancing champion and pop princess - in the photo. She was there helping "Tiger" Tim raise awareness of Robinsons Fruit Squash.)
