Well, officially Day 1 of Wimbledon has ended. And in a shocking twist, it was cut short due to rain…. 😉 ok, not so shocking.
With her Wilson Blade Team BLX racquet, Venus made a successful return with a straight set win and Wilson Next Gen’r Ksenia Pervak used her Tour BLX racquet to pull the upset over #22 seed Peer.
Tennis has actually been going on for a week with qualies action. What separates Wimbledon from the other Grand Slams is that qualies is played at another club called Roehampton, about 20 minutes away from the All England Club.
It’s not the same….yes, the court conditions at Roehampton have been compared to cow pastures and are not anywhere close to the level of the All England Club…. it’s far from luxurious.
Putting some tennis court lines, a net and a fence, hardly make it great conditions to play in.
With this being said, all the more credit to those players who win three straight matches to make it to the main draw of the most prestigious Grand Slam.
Here are out players that made their way through and managed to make it to the big, big, big show!!
Good luck Wilson team!!
Until later, Tracy
