With the games at 17 all, Pancho Gonzales of America takes a breather and rests on his racket during his Centre Court battle with compatriot Charles Pasarell at Wimbledon on June 24, 1969. Pancho, a long-time Wimbledon favourite, lost the first two sets 22-24: 1-6, but the match is not finished.
Those scores! Holy schnitkies.
And now, it’s time for me to get a few hours sleep before Wimbledon starts!
