After Ashleigh Barty strolled the first 3 games against Karolina Priskova I thought this one will be over soon.
However both players have bouts of lost concentration and form. It proved an even well fought contest
Ms Barty, after being something of a young prodigy, suffered burn out and even took up cricket.
She returned to tennis. Her game is better suited to grass.
Ms Priskova has yet to win a Wimbledon title. At six foot she has a power game but prone to unforced error. It went to one set all but I always thought Ms Barty would win as she had the better all round game.
Just before the final game Tom Cruise stood up which led to a miasma of photography on mobiles.
I don’t get this at all. What is the sense of such photographs?
It’s not as if anyone spoke to the film actor only they could say they were at Centre Court with him. He was not even in the Royal Box.
Everyone standing up was so distracting for the players too.
As for the men’s final, I understand both players are desperate to get to Wembley for the Euro final especially the Italian Mayteo Berrentini.
