Wimbledon Champions.

Wimbledon Championships 2023.

Alcaraz does it in five.

Young Spanish Wizard is the new

Wimbledon Men’s Champion.

In a five set thriller, littered with great strokes

and too many errors from both players,

Alcaraz won:

1-6, 7-6 (8), 6-1, 3-6, 6-4.

Djokovic’s mediocre serving

cost him the title.

He smashed his racket

 against a net post

and received a code violation.

Just to let Todd Woodbridge know,

Roger Federer defeated Pete Sampras

in the round of sixteen in the 2001 Wimbledon

Championships the year Tim Henman lost to Ivanisevic

in the Wimbledon semi-final

which took place over three days.

Day 14 dawns.

Can Djokovic extinguish the Alcaraz fire and finesse?

Novak is going for his 24th Grand Slam triumph

and today he could match Roger Federer’s

eight Wimbledon Trophy wins.

An intriguing battle awaits us at SW19.


Day 13.

 Ladies Singles Finals Day.

Unseeded Marketa Vondrousova of the Czech Republic

won her first Wimbledon Ladies Singles title

defeating Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur 6-4, 6-4.

Jabeur is therefore runner-up

in the Ladies Singles event for the second year running.

Perhaps it will be third time lucky for Ons next year.

We hope Marketa’s cat Frankie 

was well-behaved for the Cat Sitter during the final.


Day 12.

Djokovic docked point for hindrance offence,

but still wins his semi-final in straight sets.

Italy’s Sinner gave a good account of himself in the first

Mens Singles semi-final on Friday,

14th July, 2023 at Wimbledon 2023.

Djokovic won the match 6-3, 6-4, 7-6

to book a place in Sunday’s men’s singles final.

Djokovic will meet Carlos Alcaraz

who battered Russia’s Medvedev

in a rather one-sided

second men’s singles semi-final.

Alcaraz won in straight sets

6-3, 6-3, 6-3 to join Djokovic

in the men’s singles final.

Can Novak conquer the Alcaraz power?

All will be revealed on Sunday, can’t wait.


Artificial Intelligence Commentators

may be the way forward.

This innovation is sadly indicative

 of the dire standards of commentary

during the BBC’s coverage of Wimbledon 2023.

Tim Henman, John McEnroe and Tracy Austin are excellent,

but sadly the rest are not up to the mark.

Some may be ok on Breakfast Television

but please keep them away from

commentating on Tennis matches at Wimbledon.

They show a distinct lack of knowledge

and show little interest in the events which are taking place

on the Tennis Courts of SW19.

Robert Shrigley Woolf could write a song

about this new phenomenon.

Perhaps ‘Lack of Tennis Intelligence’

could be a very apt title for such a tune.

Day 11.

Ons Jabeur fought back to secure a place

in Wimbledon’s 2023 Ladies Singles Final.

Jabeur came from a set down to win

6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-3.

In the other Ladies Semi-Final

the Czech Republic’s Vondrousova

defeated the Ukraine’s Svitolina

6-3, 6-3.

Jabeur has lost to Vondrousova

on two separate occasions this year

so it should be an interesting Ladies Final

this coming Saturday.


Day 10.

Resilient Medvedev proves too strong

for swashbuckling Eubanks.

It took five sets to subdue Chris Eubanks

who sadly blew up in the fifth set

losing it 6-1.

Alcaraz in the other quarter final defeated

Denmark’s Rune in three sets to set up

a semi final with Medvedev.


In the remaining Ladies singles quarter finals

Jabeur defeated Rybakina

and Sabalenka defeated Keys.


Preview of Day 10 at Wimbledon 2023.

Please take a look at the ‘Wrecking-ball forehand’

owned by America’s Chris Eubanks.

Britain’s Cam Norrie,

Greece’s Stefanos Tsitsipas,

have had their Wimbledon hopes demolished.

Will Medvedev be the latest victim?

Watch this space?

Alcaraz and Rune should be a tasty encounter.

Jabeur versus Rybakina in the Ladies Singles

is a repeat of the 2022 Ladies Final.


Day 9 At Wimbledon 2023.

Italy’s Sinner and Croatia’s Djokovic

 into Men’s Singles Semi-Finals.


In the Ladies Quarter Finals,

the Ukraine’s Svitolina defeated Poland’s Swiatek

in three sets to book a place in the Ladies

Singles Semi-Final.

In the day’s other Ladies Singles Quarter Final

the Czech Republic’s Vondrousova

defeated the USA’s Pegula to advance to the semi-final.

Really looking forward to Day 10 at Wimbledon 2023.

There should be some great match-ups.


Day 8.

New kids on the block at Wimbledon 2023.

Chris Eubanks defeats Tsitsipas in five sets.

Alcaraz defeats Berrettini to set up quarter final with Denmark’s Rune.

Rybakina through after opponent retires.

She will now play Ons Jabeur

in the quarter-finals a repeat of the

2022 Ladies Singles final.



Days 5 and 6.

No British players remain in singles events at Wimbledon 2023.

Andy Murray lost in five sets to Tsitsipas who thoroughly deserved his victory.

Cam Norrie was out-served by American Chris Eubanks.

Liam Broady lost his four set clash

with Canada’s Shapovalev.

Sadly, Katie Boulter could not cope with

last year’s Wimbledon Champion Rybakina

and lost 6-1, 6-1.

This was a very disappointing end to what had been an encouraging week for British Tennis.


Day 4 at the Wimbledon Championships 2023.

Katie Boulter and Liam Broady

through to third round of their respective singles events.

Andy Murray is two sets to one up on Tsitsipas.

He will resume his match on Friday.

Back the Brits.


Day 3 at Wimbledon 2023.

Katie Boulter is Britain’s only winner

on day 3 at Wimbledon 2023.

Katie Boulter defeated Daria Saville

7-6, 6-2 in the rained delayed first round

Ladies Singles match.

Sadly Jodie Burrage and Heather Watson

could not back up Katie Boulter’s success.

Jodie and Heather both lost in straight sets.

Mens Singles. 

Britain’s Arthur Fery ponders his Stanford University future

after impressive Centre Court display against number three seed

Daniil Medvedev.

Fery lost in straight sets but put up a very creditable show

and some have suggested he goes full-time on the tour immediately.

Finish your studies first mate and then turn pro.


Andy Murray to headline Day 4.

Andy Murray faces Stefano Tsitsipas in round two of the Men’s Singles

on day four of the championships.

Should be well worth a watch.

See you again tomorrow for more updates.


Day 2. IMG_0089

In a rain-affected second day Andy Murray and Cam Norrie

progressed to the Men’s Singles second round.

Sadly Dan Evans lost in four sets in his match carried over from Monday.

Katie Boulter will resume her match on Wednesday 5-6 down in the opening set.

Wimbcha2Great to see former Men’s Singles Champion

Roger Federer back at Wimbledon this week.

Day 1.

Britain’s Jodie Burrage, Jan Choinski and Liam Broady

win their opening round matches in Wimbledon 2023.

BBC Commentary a disgrace on Katie Swann match

on first Monday of the Championships.

Some wonder why we can’t produce

a Wimbledon Ladies Champion in the UK.

You only had to listen to the commentary on Katie Swann’s

match with Bencic to understand why.

Katie put up a good fight in the opening set

but lost it 7-5.

At two all in the second there seemed some hope of a comeback

but unfortunately Katie couldn’t hold her serve and lost the second set 6-2.

Having been a Tennis Coach for 25 years

and knowing how difficult it is for

our women to break through into the World’s top hundred,

I don’t want to hear such negative and pathetic

commentating again particularly when Jodie Burrage

takes to the court for her second round match.

Shame on you BBC.

A visit to the Wimbledon Championships.
