Friday/ the last days of Wimbledon 2022

Wimbledon 2022 is about to wrap up with the Ladies’ Singles Final and the Gentlemen’s Singles Final on Sunday. (That’s right. Ladies and gentlemen only. No hoi polloi, plebeians, women on the loose, or scoundrels are allowed.)

As for the gentlemen— Carlos Alcaraz (19, 🇪🇸 Spain) had lost against Jannik Sinner (20, 🇮🇹 Italy) in the round of 16, then Sinner lost against Djokovic (35, 🇷🇸 Serbia) in the quarterfinal, after being two sets up to none.

At the bottom of the draw, Nadal (36, 🇪🇸 Spain) took out Taylor Fritz (24, 🇺🇸 USA) in five grueling sets, but injured an abdominal muscle in the process.
So Nadal had to forfeit his semi-final match against Nick Kyrgios (27, 🇦🇺 Australia).

So now we have a Djokovic-Kyrgios showdown for Sunday, which will be very interesting. Kyrgios is very talented but very volatile. He has beaten Djokovic both times in their two previous meetings, which should boost his confidence.

English singer Sir Cliff Richard (81) is a regular attendee at Wimbledon. This was his getup today—looking dapper in a tailored Union Jack blazer lined with strings of different buttons, completed with a little buttonhole red rose. The blazer was ostensibly to show support for British No 1 Cameron Norrie, who was taking on Djokovic in the semi-final. Norrie won the first set, but then Djokovic took control of the match and won the next three sets).
