Today we saw something really, really special. It was so monumental the idea of sleeping the night prior was as if I was playing today to become number one. Four times Roger has been number one. But today. Well it was different in so many ways and levels. Yes. It’s almost UN-imaginable at 36 and a half. Roger will be 37 on August 8 2018. To be Number 1. Número uno.

From the moment the match started, so did the nerves. Roger’s? Mine! Ok. Here’s a few photos. EPA let us down. We will try better luck tomorrow. Poor dear Robin he DOUBLE-FAULTED on match point.

He put up a heroic battle. But I’m certain the odds were 99-1 in favor of R.F.

We celebrate. We have witnessed history today. We are enjoying one of the greatest athletes ever. R.F. is also one of the kindest and thoughtful and charitable humans on Earth. A true sportsman whose an Ambassador for Humanity. I do think he could create WORLD PEACE… WALK ON WATER? Win till he is 40…

Side note: Richard Krajicek. Beautiful tribute you paid Roger today. We applaud you and your team. It was truly fantastic! Happy 45th year. We are happy you are the TD. From year one you have been a great tournament director and brought this tourney fresh life.

 

You are also a great tournament promoter. That’s a real knack. You use your antenna well to give the people a good time. You know what your fans, your VIPs, your players, your sponsors, your patrons all want and need… And you deliver.

 

You understand your tennis event is there to give the fans s great visit to your arena for their money’s worth. You understand it’s the hospitality industry.

Your event is a success because of your hard work and dedication.

Your WIMBLEDON win in 1996 showed the World what a great champion on and off the court you are. Everyone at 10sBalls are especially happy Roger achieved this amazing historic event at your tournament.

Bravo. Historic Day. All Amazing.
