Wimbledon 2020 has drawn to a close, and what a Wimbledon it was. With the Championships cancelled for the first time since WW2 fans relied on history and technology to bring us the joy of the Championships. They certainly delivered. No matter how great the classic matches are however, there is something they simply couldn’tContinue reading “Until next year…”
Yikes! Well folks, here we are: Sunday the 12th of the July, Men’s Finals Day and the last day of The Championships. We have reached the end, but what to end on? What recipe to test and share with you all for finals weekend.
We’ve been watching a lot of grass court tennis in the last two weeks. Between Wimbledon’s YouTube Channel going round-by-round with a spectacular array of matches and the BBC Rewind programme audiences have been spoiled for choice.

I decided to make the cake to take with me-Continue reading “7 Rounds of Strawberries and Cream – Round Three”
Welcome to Round Two of Strawberries and Cream- a Wimbledon food challenge. Choux pastry in any form is one of my favourite things to eat and so eclairs seemed the obvious answer.
One food that is as synonymous with Wimbledon as the white tennis kits and green grass: Strawberries and Cream. So here we go, a very specific Wimbledon food challenge: 7 Rounds of Strawberries and Cream.

Like many we looked on at the first leg in Belgrade questioning what we were seeing, wondering at the hugs, handshakes and 4,000 strong crowds. When news broke earlier this week that first Grigor Dimitrov, then Borna Coric, and eventually Viktor Troiki and Novak Djokovic (along with both their wives and multiple trainers) had testedContinue reading “The Adria Tour”
Nadal is the ultimate tennis gladiator and the clay is the perfect arena.
For Andy Murray, one needs look no further than the summer of 2012, and the epic double of Wimbledon and the Olympics.
