Sport aplenty in the month of July

on

July promises to be a wonderful month for watching sport.

Wimbledon-2015The sport has already started with the beginning of Wimbledon.  Although I generally don’t watch the tennis there are a few Australians I will be following, in particular Samantha Stosur.  It was sad to see Lleyton Hewitt exit Wimbledon so quickly in this his final year on the professional circuit.  He has certainly provided us with many years of “fight back” matches.

Cricket is well under way over in the U.K. and we have been able to watch it on television here in Australia.  The real cricket starts with the Ashes series which I will definitely be watching, when it doesn’t clash with the cycling!

My favourite cycling event starts this month, with the Tour de France.

Super 15 rugby union has reached the pointy end of the season and the final is between two New Zealand teams, this would suggest that the All Blacks will be the team to beat come the World Cup which starts in England in September.

  1. That’s a lot of sport. I watched the end of the Lleyton Hewitt match yesterday and it was great to see him in action, although it was a great shame that he went out so soon. I have to ration myself during Wimbledon because otherwise I’d never get anything else done. That Tour Tracker looks like an addictive app.

      When I first started to watch the Tour de France many years ago I used to ration myself because I was working then. I am now a lady of leisure so I can afford to stay up late at night as I have the option of sleeping in the following morning. Generally my body adjusts to the late nights. I think I am pumped up on adrenaline. I just love watching it.

      1. That’s great, just the sort of thing you should be able to do in retirement.
