As Rihanna said “cheers to the fricken washout weekend”, maybe she didn’t say ‘washout’ but if she was British, she would have done! So sit back, relax and enjoy the double 7 WRU edition 6!
Wimbledon is fairly normal, but this year records have been broken, seeds have been smashed and history has been made. For the first time in Wimbledon history, a Mens singles match was played past 11pm, it was a Murray v Baghdatis match. Going against health and safety wishes, they agreed to play on if someone was a few points away from winning. Keeping true to their word, Murray played on until 11:02pm, in which he won.
Serena Williams and Venus Williams became part of the first women’s doubles to play past 9pm, not going past 11pm though as they won with 10 minutes to spare!
The mens doubles final was a moment in history too, having the first Brit to win the doubles since 1936!
So history is being made all around, its a great time to read up on some Wimbledon facts and then some Federer facts and then some Murray facts ahead of the Mens final! Watch its as history is being made whoever wins!
Here’s my own little joke for the British weather; Had to cross David Cameron and Nick Clegg off the Ark boarding list, to make room for the Addams family!
If you have an Ark joke, comment it!
Not quite a round up, though Wimbledon is Legen-waitforit-Dary!
That’s all for now!
