Wimbledon 2019: Tennis fans queue in glorious sunshine for day two at SW19

Thousands of tennis fans from across globe have turned out for the second day of Wimbledon although the sun brightly shines on the south London tournament again. They hope to get into the hallowed grounds in order to watch some of the world’s biggest tennis players.

Eight-time champion of Wimbledon Roger Federer is going to follow against Lloyd Harris, with Rafael Nadal, the number 3 seed in the tournament, playing Yuichi Sugita on the same court.

Yesterday, we saw the 15-year-old qualifier Cori Gauff perform one of the greatest Wimbledon upsets by beating the five-time champion and her idol Venus Williams.

The young player known as Coco outplayed the 39-year-old Williams when she made a 6-4 6-4 victory to create a sensational Grand Slam singles debut.

After her heroics, the teenage sensation beamed: “My motto is ‘just wing it’. We’re all going to die one day, I just want to make the most of it.”

And as we know, Wimbledon umpires must use women players’ last names only after having been banned from calling them “Miss” or “Mrs”.

The hit on miss, announced at the start of the 2019 tournament, brings an end to 135 tradition years.

However, there is one tradition that remains firms – Wimbledon is one of the UK’s only major sports events that still sell tickets on the day of play.

Anyway, all you have to do right now is get down to the All England Club and get in the queue in a true British style.

There are only a limited number of tickets that are available daily for Centre Court, No.1 Court and No.2 Court – except for the last 4 days on Centre Court, when all tickets are sold in advance.

There are also several thousand ground passes available each day that cost just £25 throughout the opening week of the tournament, allowing the user unlimited access to the outside courts.

In this final, Goffin could only make it difficult for Federer in the first game when he forced “speed boat” to enter the tie-break series. With his experience and bravery, Federer has won with the 7/2 sub-score.

This victory will give Federer confidence when he is about to enter the Wimbledon tournament, where he has also won 8 titles.
