From down here near the court, looking up, the Stadium looks to be shaped like a huge wedding cake,
and once past the gentler foothills of the box seats the aluminum stands seem to rise away on all sides almost vertically,
so vertiginously steep that a misstep on any of the upper stairs looks like it would be certain and hideous death.

Few weeks away yet. But Wimbledon's in the rearview. Time to turn the page.
What are we expecting?
Same ol' same ol'? The emergence of a long-awaited heir?
It's summertime, people. And it's hot as blazes.
Let's hope that they've got the ventilation sorted out this year, eh?
