day 2220 – outside masters

keeping up with practice at masters class on one of my infrequent saturday off. i’m even more taped up than usual after getting a scrape across my instep yesterday, but that’s never stopped me from anything in the past. i’m glad i went because i got more pointers on how to refine my back tuck and x-outs. the bonus was getting to try them with shoes and then some x-out attempts on grass, both spotted and unspotted. i wouldn’t say i’m comfortable with it by all means, but the fear is slowly shrinking. it’s a pretty good way to end the month of august

day 2125 – wimbledon tour

i’m ecstatic to have the chance to tour and walk on the same grounds as many of the tennis greats. i get to be in the centre court, practice courts, broadcasting station and press conference rooms where i can freely take photos. it’s definitely one of the top priorities on this trip and will likely be a top highlight when it’s all said and done. i wish i could take my parents to see this lawn tennis centre. the least i could do was take back a souvenir for both. also wished i could spend more time here, but other sightseeing duties call. hope one day i can afford to be a ticket holder of this grand slam
