Wimbledon: Ball Boys vs Ball Dogs

Hello Fiends!

Thank you for all your kind words about my blog last week. I am glad it made you smile.

I have been watching Wimbledon this week, that is when it hasn’t been postponed due to rain! I love it because it includes my all-time favourite thing, bouncy balls!

The ball boys and girls are almost as good as me at fetching and letting go of the balls.

This got me thinking, I think I would make a pretty good ball boy. Although I’m not too sure about the caps they have to wear, I think I prefer my own hats.

It turns out, lots of other fiends have taken an interest in tennis recently. Take a look at these fiends on Twitter who were preparing for the French Open a couple of months ago.

And here are some fiends celebrating Wimbledon. Just look at all those strawberries!

As it happens, Aukland in New Zealand have already thought about who would make the best ball boys and girls of all time. They had a little help from five time Wimbledon champion, Venus Williams…

I think the problem is I would get too distracted and want to join in with the game, so maybe it is best to leave it to the fabulous Ball Boys and Girls of Wimbledon!

My own videos are up on YouTube for you to watch now! Do show any younger fiends you might know who don’t know how to work computers. There will be a new one up later today, but for now you can watch last week’s. I went on a big day out! It was SUCH an adventure.

If you weren’t a dog, or couldn’t be for my human fiends out there, what animal would you be? Let me know on Facebook or Twitter.

Until next time fiends!
