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.
