Wonders of Wimbledon
What a fantastic Wimbledon Men's Final!...I could hardly bear to see either of them lose, but lose 'our' Roger did (his mom is South African you know!). I'd been spending odd moments during the week trying to get down some action drawings, but doing them in live time I found quite impossible, though I quite like the squiggly attempts on bottom left, of Nadal - just waiting for the serve, hardly moving! We're lucky to have the stop-and-rewind feature on our TV that you can pause, so I drew some of the real mid-flight poses that I could land on without complete distortion. I didn't draw during the final...much too stressful on top of the other tension...
