    Please post your favorite pics of Wimbledon 2009 here, whether you take them yourself at the tournament venue or find them on the web. (It would also be nice if you'd caption them.)*

    *Two requests:
    1) Please don't hotlink to an image posted on another site, because hotlinking is a form of bandwidth theft and there are plenty of free image-hosting sites, some of which include: imageshack; imagecave; imagechicken; tinypic; instantimagehosting; photobucket.
    2) To make it easier for the thread to load, please use the tools in your image-hosting account to reduce any image to less than 50 Kb before posting it in this thread.

    oh my gosh. this morning (just after midnight my time) i was listening to radio wimbledon (8 a.m. London time), and one of their reporters from the grounds was interviewing people who had camped out on line all night! :shock:

    Is your sister (or her husband) planning to take pictures? :)

    They sure are. She knows nothing of tennis but he is a fan. He told her to cheer for Murray so that is her mantra for the next couple weeks. I suggested they check out the smaller courts for a better view of the matches and they said they will. I also suggested they hunt down Ferrero and Safin like wild dogs for me, but that is not too likely. lol.

    I will post whatever pics they manage to snag in this thread.

    Excellent! :D Be sure to tell them to catch a match on Court 2, because that's the new one they were all raving about today. It's sunken, seats about 4,000 and was dedicated this morning by the Duke of Kent and Laura Robson "christened it" by playing her first match there as an adult (15 years old) against daniela hantchukova.

    Definitely put in a good word for Safin and/or Andreev!:)

    I read that.

    Hotlinking is bandwidth theft? I don't get it. Is it not allowed in this forum? I have no issues in other forum.
