The Wimbledon is currently being played and has been a witness to some jaw-dropping encounters. Yesterday, South Africa’s Kevin Anderson and John Isner from the United States of America (USA) locked horns and after more than six hours, Anderson managed to win with the fifth and final set ending in a mammoth 26-24. Anderson broke Isner’s service after which his opponent couldn’t do the same.
Amidst the stupendous display of work with the racket, Sachin Tendulkar, the former Indian cricketer also graced his presence at the venue. The semi-final between Serbian Novak Djokovic and Spain’s Rafael Nadal took place thereafter and the contest was suspended after Djokovic took a 2-1 lead. The remaining two sets will be played today. Djokovic won the first and third set respectively.
The Women’s final between Germany’s Angelique Kerber and USA’s very own Serena Williams is also scheduled to take place today. Meanwhile, Sachin is in India and mentioned that he would be missing the action. However, he thanked the tournament authorities for inviting him to the Royal Box, which was introduced way back in 1922 for the entertainment of guests of Wimbledon.
In the meantime, the former Indian batsman took to Twitter and wrote, “.@wimbledon, thank you for the invite to the Royal Box. Really missing being there for the Women’s finals today! Will be following all the action live from India and cheering for the quality tennis on display. Hope to see you there next year”

Meanwhile, Sachin wouldn’t be happy for the fact that Roger Federer bowed out of the event in the quarter-final following his defeat against Anderson. Even in that encounter, the fifth set turned out to be a never-ending one and the Swiss player, unfortunately, couldn’t hold on to his domination. With a couple of riveting matches in store for today, the event is poised for a thrilling finish.
