Wimbledon 2009


So it isn't only Englishmen who choke at the first sign of pressure...

Still stands the clock at 10 to 3? Or 25 to 7?

Simon chills out on a bench

Post-annihilation shake of hands.

Short break whilst line judge fixes the net

ESPN Journo recovers from stress of interview with fag break

ESPN Journo interviews Brad Gilbert, former coach to Andre Agassi and Andy Murray

Ms Ishizu. Or Ms Inoue. Still don't know.

Ms Inoue. Or Ms Ishizu. Don't know

Let's High-5 in the face of imminent annihilation.

Ms Nijiric of Croatia.

Ms Inoue and Ms Ishizu of Japan. Kept smiling and high-5ing even though they were being absolutely slaughtered by their opponents (Girls' Doubles)

Trying to find somewhere to sit on Henman Hill. Tricky when Mr Murray is on Centre Court

Outer courts with No 2 Court in the background

St Mary's Church in the background

Venus signs a few autographs before zooming out the door

No no, your outfit is much nicer than ours!

Ms Black and Ms Huber(aka the World No. 1s) try not to look too out-classed.

Venus & Serena tie it up in time for tea

One sister got the luck of the genetic draw. That's all I'm saying.

Yes Serena, your bum does look big in that. But it doesn't seem to be holding you back.

You remember - throw it up in the air and then whack it?

Serena serves it up.

Ms Liezl Huber and Ms Cara Black. Ms Black is sooo tiny that I was tempted to pick her up, put her in my pocket and take her home to join my collection of Mini Tennis Players of the World

They sell these outfits in the shops, you know. Buy now to impress your friends at parties!

Venus and Serena knock it about a bit. They could have skipped this part, to be honest.
