Breakfast at Wimbledon ... 4th of July

There's nothing better than an All-American final on the Fourth of July. Since I stopped covering Wimbledon a few years ago, I thought I'd post some old relevant pictures from my archives.

In 2002, Serena had her first of three wins against Venus in a Wimbledon final.


Coincidentally, the sisters won doubles that year as well.

A London paper ran a picture of Venus & me in 2000.

I had my first exclusive photo shoot with the Williams sisters in 1992 for National Geographic World magazine. They're so cute ... 10 & 11-years-old!

Our Independence Day festivities started at Matt & Ilona's house.

No blog update is complete without Anna sticking something in her mouth! Luckily, it's just Tyler's BBQ nachos.

Ilona had this incredible Falafel tool.

Matt made the falafel from scratch. It was AWESOME!

Luke helped out in the kitchen.

As always, Matt was the grill master & nobody would go home hungry.

The steak came off the grill first.

After gorging ourselves we went across the pond to Tyler & Anna's house. Matt & Tyler relax on the patio.

Yum ... Anna made me a Frappe.

Hank was happy to have company, even if we didn't bring Luke.

Anna & Tyler's lime tree had itty bitty limes, the size of a quarter.

A view of my house across the Lake from Anna & Tyler's.

I opted not to ride my bike to the beach with everyone else. I had a lot of prep work for tomorrow, so I shot the fireworks from my couch. I think I got a pretty good shot!

Amazing fireworks shot. I remember the shot of Venus and Serena as young girls and you telling me Serena would be the one to watch.

Thanks Kirsten! The fireworks were shot off my TV, from the Macy's NY display.
