The first week of action is over at the world’s oldest, and arguably the most famous, tennis tournament: Wimbledon in London, England.
It’s hard to believe that I had taken this picture 40 years ago, on Thursday, July 2, 1981. Bjorn Borg (25 at the time, Sweden) was playing Jimmy Conners (28, USA) in the semi-final.
