At Wimbledon With Marcia Frost...
Friday, June 29th
The one thing that is not "grand" about this event is the weather. It's rainy and a bit cool. I'm told that this is the norm and the tournament has extra days built in to cover the uncooperative weather. The matches today were stopped, started and moved, with quite a few being completed. The event is run with precision and it seems they are prepared for anything that might happen -- even bomb threats. It didn't take long for security to be increased when there were bombs found in the centre of London.
Weather permitting, the juniors are scheduled to begin on Saturday. The All England Club is quite a bit smaller than the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center so let's see how many I can manage to cover!
