    You won’t believe this but just that photo makes me glad my Wimbledon going days were over long ago and it was bad enough then, even if you didn’t have to pay to get in. I liked the tournament better when it was smaller, more casual, it bit ramshackle, fewer celebs and NO SOCIAL MEDIA. Gone with the wind I’m afraid.

    Both winners deserved their trophies. You may be posting about that. Having followed Angie’s via dolorosa through 2017 I can’t think of anyone more deserving.

    Re Althea Gibson, mentioned on your Twitter, among the several books available about her I can recommend The Match, about her friendship with British player of the 50s, Angela Buxton, whom I knew back in the day. Well written too. Can remember the author off-hand but he wrote for SI.

    Big talking point for women – all top 10 seeds gone by second Monday. WTA should be considering that. Probably won’t.

    BTW – short story on Amazon Kindle by Barbara Backspin, Games of Life. Fiction, needless to say.
    Could be cheaper.

    Glad to see you’re persevering with The Changeover although I know your time and resources are limited. Good balanced coverage.
