PHOTO OP: Throwback Thursday at Wimbledon

It was a special morning at Wimbledon as Queen Elizabeth made her first appearance at The Championships in 33 years. She was met by the Duke of Kent, who is president of the All England Club, chairman Tim Phillips, vice-chairman Philip Brook and chief executive Ian Ritchie.

She was given a tour of the grounds followed by a luncheon where she met with a number of ballers including Roger Federer, Serena Williams (who managed to keep her curtsy under control), Andy Roddick, Novak Djokovic, Venus Williams, Jelena Jankovic, Laura Robson, Anne Keothavong, Elena Baltacha, Heather Watson, Caroline Wozniacki, Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova.

Afterward she took to the Royal Box to watch Andy Murray easily dismiss Jarkko Nieminen 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 in the second round. The boys performed the traditional bow to the Royal Box upon entering and leaving Centre Court.

Seriously, what a special tourney this has been already. I can't wait to see what the rest of the fortnight brings us. It's great to be a tennis fan right now!

  1. That bow is just too precious for words. Adorable and awkward at the same time!

    Love the image with the lineup of champions. I wonder what Roger and Serena are chatting about...

  2. who's the guy with the wimby tie in the crowd?

  3. Wondering about the guy in the crowd too!?

    Looks like Serena was close to splitting her skirt with that curtsey!

  4. The guy in the tie is Tim Henman -- he retired not that long ago. Are you all trying to make me feel old?!? ;)

    BTW, Rich -- great Wimby coverage this year, and you are looking super-HOT in your new profile pic in that right column. Your bf is a lucky guy!


  5. Henman gained a few kilos, I almost didn't recognize him...

  6. Are Jelena and Venus rocking the same dress?

  7. Tim looks really good! Wow, he gained some pounds and added some color to his skin. Never thought much of his looks during his playing days but retirement has done him well!

  8. Tin: you so crazy! thank you.

    Yes, that's Henman looking pretty dapper IMO. He looks better with a little bit more weight.

    I'm not sure if they're wearing the same dress or not. Can't tell from the pics.

    I was wondering about A-Rod who was a late substitution for Muzz who was up first for the Queen on Centre. That jacket looks like something the wait staff or linespeople would be working.
