Wimbledon timeshifts

Wimbledon starts tomorrow. I like Wimbledon, but it does confuse me a bit. Every year there will be ten or so title contenders, eight of whom I’ve never heard of and sure as hell weren’t around last year, but who nevertheless appear to be seasoned professionals with titles, rivalries etc.. I have yet to determine whether this is deliberate trickery punishing those who don’t follow the sport year-round, or if time runs three times faster in the tennis world. Happens every year, though.

Still, Wimbledon = official start of summer. In my head. Ra.

25/06 update: See? Anna Ivanovic. #1 in the world, never heard of her.
