My first visit to Roland Garros 2015

As Wimbledon 2015 officially commences today, I thought it would be about time to finally post all the photos my dad and I took during our visit to Roland Garros this May. Those who personally know me, will know how much myself and my family adore tennis, and we could not miss the opportunity to check out the city’s very own championships. I have been to Wimbledon pretty much every year for the past 8-10 years, either going as a spectator or working there.

Not only to be able to while away the time watching the tennis by the Eiffel Tower like I did this weekend, but also because I will be attending the French Open this year!! My family will be coming over tomorrow, and we will spend the whole day there on Thursday – so keep checking out my instagram, as I can imagine I will be uploading quite a few photos! Who do you think is going to win this year? Could Nadal become the first man in tennis history to win the same Grand Slam title 10 times?! (I hope so!)
