A quote from Dorina
Hi Annabel thank you, and to those who organised this unforgettable Wimbledon experience for me. I saw some great matches on centre court from; Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Emma Raducanu. It felt special to actually be there in person and to feel the thrilling atmosphere from the crowds as we cheered the players on. I was also able to see some other well known players on the ground courts too including Alcaraz and Marton Fucsovics(who i even got a picture with!!). It was the best day i could have asked for and i really enjoyed every bit of it!
