Sporting events have a way of turning even the most unsporty and skeptical into fans. Or maybe it’s just the atmosphere of camaraderie, excitement, sportsmanship and tradition that attracts attendees like bees to a honey pot. Whatever it is, as one of the highlights of an English summer, aside from some GREAT tennis, Wimbledon is also a chance to see and be seen as evidenced by the long snaking queues waiting to get into the venue and the always full bleachers despite the scorching summer sun.
JJ Lin takes a selfie with Chinese actor Bai Jingting and Korean idol Choi Siwon who were both smiling for the camera happily. But who’s that at the left shoulder of Siwon? It’s Crazy Rich Asians/ A Simple Favor star Henry Golding seated with Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone! I think both stars attended the match with American brand Ralph Lauren, lucky ducks. Eagle eyed Netizens also pointed out another celebrity seated just behind Siwon’s head – Brooklyn Beckham who attended with his girlfriend. But wait! It’s not over yet! See that lady in blue just behind Bai Jingting’s head? That ladies and gentlemen, is Kendall Jenner. See what I mean about this being the selfie that keeps on giving? It’s like playing Where’s Waldo albeit a Wimbledon 2019 celebrity edition!
Congratulations to this year’s winners – Novak Djokovic and Simona Halep. Raising my cup of Pimm’s for a job well done. Congratulations to you both. Chin chin!
