My paperwork has finally been processed at the UK Consulate and my visa has been approved. They tell me my passport along with my visa should be returned to me in the next 48 hours. So, finally I have some good news to report. Unfortunately, due to the delay I’ve missed the first two tournaments in Herzliya, Israel, but thankfully I’ll be able to make the third and final tournament which starts with qualifying on the 14th of June. From Israel, it’s on to England for the month of July and three Futures on grass in Manchester, Felixstowe and Ilkley. Growing up in Zimbabwe we had a grass court at home, so I’m really looking forward to getting back onto the surface I was raised on.
Anyway, it is a great day for tennis and a great day for the spectators to finally see some matches in a row!
Maria Sharapova is on Court Philippe Chatrier right now playing Jie Zheng.
A great schedule today for the spectators with access to centre court. They will get to see Nadal vs Fognini and Djokovic vs Dimitrov later on.
High level tennis all day!
