The Museum holds personal collections of equipment, dress and archive material relating to Wimbledon champions, pioneer players and stars of the court from each generation. This collection is continually updated with new material from competitors on the current professional circuit.

If you enjoy tennis, history of tennis and want to know more about Wimbledon behind the scenes, a visit to the Wimbledon Museum is a must-do. You can also take a Wimbledon guided tour, read my recap here.

In this week’s Tennis Buzz: Federer is not happy with Navratilova’s comments, Sharapova wears her grandmother’s underwear and Djokovic is flying high.

Following Djokovic’s victory in Indian Wells, Federer has dropped to number 3, and Navratilova predicts it will be hard for him to get back to number one:

Roger is on the other side of the float, I don’t think he’ll ever play as well as he did three or four years ago—that’s not to say he can’t still win a slam, but it’s difficult to see him climbing back to No. 1.Nadal is dominating and Djokovic’s confidence is off the chart. Roger has lost three matches (this season) to Djokovic and lost to him at U.S. Open last year as well, it will get under his skin.

And Federer is grumpy:

Maybe she missed the London World Tour Finals. Maybe she was somewhere else climbing Kilimanjaro. I love her. Look, I think she’s been an inspiration to my wife [Mirka] and I always love seeing her, but if you had the microphone in front of you and you get a negative question, you get dragged into it. And she’s in front of the microphone a lot of times like other experts and eventually you can’t just say only good things. You have to also say more negative things.

I must say I agree with Navratilova: Nadal came back succesffuly from injury, Djokovic plays the tennis of his life, and Del Potro is again a Grand Slam contender but Federer is so used to be praised for everything he does -even for breathing air- that every little critic is a drama for him.
What a hard life for Federer….

During this time, number 2 Novak Djokovic was playing tennis on wings of flying plane in this HEAD commercial…
