Yesterday we went to the Olympics. We had tickets for the tennis at Wimbledon, our tickets were for Court 1.
We travelled down by train in first class! We had a very good journey across London.
Once we reached Wimbledon station there were pink signs everywhere showing us the way. There were also loads of friendly and helpful volunteers providing information and directions.
Arriving at Wimbledon was really exciting, here is my first glimpse of Centre Court.
We had about two hours before the tennis started so we had a good look around.

Tsonga on Court 1.
After just over an hour the rain we had been getting for a while became heavy enough to stop play and bring the covers on.
During the rain delay we saw some more of Wimbledon, this plaque commemorates the longest match at Wimbledon.
We sat on Henman Hill and watched Andy Murray in action on Centre Court on the big screen.
Once play resumed we looked forward to seeing more matches, we didn’t expect to see Olympic history with the longest tennis match the Olympics has ever seen. Tsonga finally won 25 – 23 in the third and final set.
Next up was British player Heather Watson.
Due to the rain delay and the length of the Tsonga match we had to leave after the first set to make sure we caught our train home. Unfortunately Heather didn’t win.
We had an amazing day at Wimbledon and the Olympics. I am so glad we got to be part of it.
Last night the British women’s football team won their group which means they are playing in Coventry on Friday night. We already had tickets for this match so are really excited to be getting to see more of Team GB this week!
