Sunday morning, for the first time in my sports loving life, I watched a tennis match. Have I watched bits and pieces of various matches before? Yes, but never an entire match.
It’s not that I don’t like tennis, but like the majority of America, I have spent most of my time and energy following team sports.
The game and its stars are not a complete mystery to me, however. Through watching ESPN and reading the sports pages everyday, I have a grasp on the game’s best players, major tournaments and a basic understanding of the rules.
The last few days, I have casually been checking the outcomes of Wimbledon matches, seeing who was going to play in the final match, like I do every summer.
Then I thought: Why not watch the Wimbledon men’s final on Sunday morning? Or better yet, why don’t I watch the match and record my thoughts and opinions?
What follows are the thoughts and opinions on the Wimbledon men’s final through the eyes of a first time viewer.
