Tuesday 26 June 2012: Triumph and Disaster
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same
Stanley and I have had an afternoon of watching Wimbledon and catching up on yesterday's play. We were both surprised at Venus' departure, and Stanley had to keep checking the score as he couldn't believe it.
Apparently this quote from the poem 'If' is inscribed above the player's entrance to Centre Court at Wimbledon. Perhaps this is where Venus went wrong. At least Rafa and Andy are through today.
If in full.
Venus - maybe she hasn't got it any more?
