(When it happened) 

One of the most memorable experiences of my academic journey in the UK was to have the honour of being invited to watch the championship match showcasing the all-time rivalry between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray in 2013. The UK had been thirsty for a Wimbledon trophy for nearly a decade before Andy Murray, a Scottish tennis player, narrowly defeated Novak Djokovic to finally bring the Wimbledon Championships host’s gloomy years to an end.

(Where it took place) 

This final match took place under the roof of the world renowned Centre Court, the main court at The Championships, Wimbledon, the third annual Grand Slam event of the tennis calendar. It is considered the world’s most famous tennis court.It incorporates the clubhouse of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. Its only regular use for play is during the two weeks a year that the Championships take place. Centre Court has a premier box, known as the Royal Box, for use by the Royal Family and other distinguished guests. It is the sixth largest tennis-specific stadium in the world by capacity.

(Who you watched it with) 

I watched it with one of my closest classmates, John. John was also my tennis buddy with whom I practised tennis every weekend at our hall’s courts. Before the match, John predicted that Djokovic would win. However, Andy’s historic victory proved him wrong.

(And explain how you felt about this experience) 

It was an eye-opening experience as it was the first time that I had attended a live sporting event and seen my idol, Novak Djokovic, in person. The thing that made it special was that Andy Murray satisfied the country’s 77-year thirst for a Wimbledon trophy by triumphing at the All England Club. The whole UK went crazy, creating an unforgettable atmosphere in the final weeks of June 2013.
