Wimbledon virgins

I was right, it was someone else’s turn;-)

Twenty-one year old Petra Kvitova won her first – of what appears will be many – Wimbledon and/or Grand Slam titles and Novak Djokovic won his first Wimbledon title (to go with two Australian Open titles) this weekend, wresting trophies from three-time Slam champion Maria Sharapova (and winner of the 2004 title) and defending champ Rafael ‘Rafa’ Nadal, a 5-time finalist, 2-time winner, and holder of 10 Grand Slam titles, respectively.

It was an exciting weekend that including Bob & Mike Bryan winning their second Wimbledon doubles title, and eleventh Grand Slam title overall; the Americans tying Australians Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde for the most ever. The Bryan Brothers have the most men’s doubles titles in the Open Era, adding their 73rd on Saturday (after the women's final).

Let the hard court season begin, starting with the Atlanta Tennis Championships July 18-24.
