In less than an hour, the 125th Wimbledon Championships at the All-England Tennis Club in London will be underway and, who else but Rafael Nadal, seeded number one, the defending champion and the current French Open winner, to open the tournament!
Rafa plays the American qualifier Michael Russell in the opening match of the first round. I have nothing to say about Russell because this is probably their first time to play against each other. I had a quick look at Rafa’s part of the draw and it seems like it is pretty much a worry-free draw. Still, it doesn’t guarantee that I will be worry-free. This boy, he always puts us, his fans, at the edge of our seats in every match he plays, regardless of who his playing against.
Anyways, I’ll be off now… StarSports channel is showing pre-taped video featurettes now and any minute now they will go on live. I hope Rafa will have a great game tonight! Vamos!
Here is today’s schedule of play, in case you want to know.
