Watching live tennis has always been on my must-do things since I developed an interest in the game watching Steffi Graff, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, and Martina Hingis play on TV years ago. While I always imagined Wimbledon would be a great introduction to live tennis, it was the wonderful people of Aegon Classic, held every year in Birmingham, UK, who finally helped me cross out this experience.

The final game between Melanie Oudin (USA) and Jelena Jankovic (Serbia) was full of drama, aces, long rallies, and even a few smashes. It proved to be a test of extreme stamina for the two players as the weather shifted between hot and cloudy at the flip of a coin.
In the end, Melanie Oudin emerged victorious winning her first WTA Tour title beating the former world number one in straight sets 6-4, 6-2.
So it seems it was a day of dream fulfillment for both me, watching a final, and of course for Melanie Oudin who won her first title of many to come I am sure.
Once again, a special thanks to the wonderful people of Aegon Classic for the tickets and a great sports event. And of course a special mention for my gorgeous daughter whose cuteness is responsible for me winning the tickets in the first place.
