Wimbledon : then and now

Its Wimbledon season again & time to remember , almost like an annual ritual,  one Wimbledon of years ago  , when my daughter of about 8 months often watched  late-night telecasts of matches cuddled in my lap gurgling with joy every time a good shot was applauded .

Defending champion John McEnroe had already been dislodged in the Quarters by  Kevin Curren who went on  to face a very young Boris Becker in the finals ( Becker won his first Wimbledon that year to become the youngest Grand Slam winner at 17 ) .

My late mother was cremated  the day Becker beat Curren . And :  I have not watched a Wimbledon final since , for the past 27 years.
