Roger's first taste of the grass starts on Halle next week and then on the 23rd of June it's the big one as the most important slam of the year, Wimbledon, kicks off for 2 solid weeks of hopefully fast paced and aggressive tennis.
As usual Fed will be wearing the same outfit he wore at the French Open for Halle, not sure how red shorts and grass will go together (red and green shouldn't be seen 😉 ) but come Wimbledon he will be sporting all white at the All England Club and the outfit is pictured below:
Easily the best outfit of the year so far I think as it's just very very simple. No daft colour blocking or stupid bits that look like an afterthought just plain white with some nice detailing. Shoes, jacket, short and practice t-shirt are all winners too and everything compliments each other perfectly. Good work from Nike 😀
2 x Wimbledon Tickets Up For Grabs
I am also running a competition to win a pair of tickets to the Ladies’ Quarter Final at Wimbledon, on Court One on Tuesday 1st July 2014. The prize also includes VIP access to the Jacob's Creek Marquee, where the winners will enjoy a 3 course lunch, exclusive wine tasting and luxury afternoon tea.
The prize is courtesy of Jacob's Creek who provide the Official Wine of Wimbledon, this year they have launched two limited edition Wimbledon bottles (Classic Chardonnay and Shiraz, see picture above) and you'll be able to give those a try in their Marquee.
Tuesday's Scheduled Matches include:
- Ladies' Singles quarter-finals
- Gentlemen's Doubles quarter-finals
- Ladies' Doubles quarter-finals
- Mixed Doubles second round
- Boys' and Girls' Singles second round
- Boys' and Girls' Doubles first round
So of those matches, on Court 1 I think you'll get to see 2 Ladies' Quarter Final matches and a Mens' doubles. Plus you have a grounds pass which gives you access to all the outside courts where you'll likely see Boys' and Girls' singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles. No Federer unfortunately 🙁 but still a pretty cool prize.
Terms and Conditions
- Both the winner and their guest must be over 18 years old (you will need to show ID to prove this on entry to Wimbledon).
- The prize does not include travel or accommodation.
- The prize is not refundable, transferable and no cash alternative will be provided.
- One entry per person
To enter please leave a comment below or share this post on Facebook on Twitter using the buttons below and indicate you want to enter. The winners will be pooled into a spreadsheet and then will be drawn at random. I will announce the winners on here as well as contacting them via email. In case the drawn winner can't attend I will then redraw another winner at random. Please note your comment might not appear below as they are held for moderation but there is no need to resubmit – I get them.
Competition closes on Thursday 19th June 2014 and I'll need you to send me your full name, and the full name of your guest before the 23rd of June.
Finally, Jacob's Creek are running a secondary competition also to win Wimbledon tickets by asking people to send in videos of themselves playing #tennisfreestyle. More info about that is on their Facebook page – facebook.com/jacobscreekuk. So if you're desperate to get your hands on some Wimbledon tickets you might want to enter both to increase your chances of winning 🙂
Any questions please let me know and also let me know what you think of Fed's outfit too in the comments below.
