Breakfast at Wimbledon

Anyone else have "Wimbledon Gentlemen's Final" traditions? Mine is Earl Grey Tea, homemade scones or oatcakes with butter and lemon curd, and (of course) strawberries and cream. This was my 2017 breakfast:

So you need to do that this year again.

When Fed plays: Hyperventilating followed by panic followed by either screamin of joy or depression.

If Fed is not playing and Djoker is: usually yelling at the guy for sucking cause he is not beating Djoker...

If neither Fed or Djoker are playing: wondering what has happened to tennis...

LOL!
I was thinking that, too! But, you know, Fed is not the least bit superstitious! (Or, so he says anyway....)

Thanks for the pic, that looks wonderful.
I don't have any traditions per se; I am contemplating calling the doc to get a prescription for 1 Xanax to get me through the match though.
It's gonna be a tall order for Rog.
Can he? Yes.
Will he?

I'm just glad it'll never fall on the 4th of July ever again.

Nothing less American than staying home to watch tennis in England while everyone else is getting day drunk and lighting stuff on fire to celebrate our independence.

LOL!!!! Fortunately, I live where I can manage both :)

I think he can, and I'm really hoping he will!

I don't really have a tradition, but I usually wake up early and make breakfast and coffee before the match starts. In 2016 I was hungover so I watched the match on my laptop in bed and went back to sleep after Murray won 2nd set.

I will be out playing tennis and start to catch up on the match 1 hour after the start on Dvr. Basically the Dvr is a great time shifting device to lump all the commercials into one whole chunk of time, which I can spend playing tennis instead of wasting!

I also use the DVR as a time shifter, and watch most matches on delay. But, never the Wimbledon final! (And, rarely other GS finals.) There's just something about seeing those happen live :)

That’s where the one hour delay comes in. By the fourth set, if there is one, the Dvr will have caught up with live.
