Wimbledon 2011: Thoughts and Opinions from a First-Time Viewer

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.
