Roger met the Queen

30.06.2010 | Off Court

Last Thursday Roger had the honour of meeting Queen Elizabeth II who only paid her second visit to the All England Club since having been there last in 1977.

 

The Queen met several players, including Roger, Venus and Serena Williams and Andy Roddick as well as former Wimbledon champions Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King. She then stayed to enjoy the match involving British player Andy Murray. Before the match, the 84-year-old monarch lunched with Roger and former British champions Angela Barrett, Ann Jones and Virginia Wade, as well as Venus Williams and Tim Henman.

 

"I was delighted to meet the Queen. It is a big honour for myself on a personal level and it's a big honour for the club." said a smiling Roger, wearing a smart grey suit, bowed as he shook hands with the Queen.

 

As the photos of the event have finally been released, we are happy to have some in our gallery (see link below).
