Queuing at Wimbledon: How To Get Into Centre Court (and Have Fun Doing It)

Nobody queues quite like the British, and nowhere do they do it better than at Wimbledon. This oldest of Grand Slams has moved into the 21 st century in leaps and bounds in the last 10 years with a highly-publicised move to equal prize money in 2007 and a brand-new roof on Centre Court to…

Roland Garros: 5 Tips for Enjoying a Day at the French Open

The two days I spent at Roland Garros (the French Open) in 2013 were momentous for me. As someone who picked up tennis at a young age and has watched the game on TV for as long as she can remember, I couldn’t believe that I was finally in watching a ball being batted around…

This week, it seemed like everyone was talking about the tennis. Not as usual, where a few dedicated tennis fans talk about the merits of Novak’s drop shot or Rafa’s heavy forehand.
