Sportch at Wimbledon 2023
As Wimbledon comes to a close, we reflect on the best 2 weeks of the year. Wimbledon 2023 was a thrilling mix of surprises and triumphs. 20-year-old Carlos Alcaraz dethroned Novak Djokovic, signalling a changing of the guard in men’s tennis. Unseeded Marketa Vondrousova, at 24 years old, claimed a surprising victory on the women’s side, showcasing the depth of talent in women’s tennis.
Jamie: Fave Match: Alcaraz vs Berrettini. After work, I joined the queue with low expectations. We waited for 2 hours, but finally, we got in and caught the end of the Salisbury/Watson Mixed doubles, which was nice. Feeling adventurous, we decided to try our luck with centre court because, why not? After some charming, we managed to get seats to watch the final set of Alcaraz and Berrettini, and it was absolutely amazing! Seeing the champion was a thrilling experience.
Dom: Fave Match: Broady vs Ruud. My highlight was seeing the British underdog, Liam Broady, triumph over the 4th seed, Casper Ruud, in an intense 5-set match. The atmosphere on Murray Mound/Henman Hill was absolutely incredible, second to none.
