The Anonymous Widower

What Would Fred Perry Have Thought?

As I worked on my computer or drove around the country, I would often have the radio on. I can remember listening to BBC Radios 2 and 5, as they covered Wimbledon in the 1980s and early 1990s, when Fred Perry was one of the summarisers.  He was very good and talked eloquently about the sport he loved.

Fred Perry died in 1995, so he never saw Andy Murray, although he may have seen Tim Henman.

I do wonder what his thoughts would have been, if he’d seen Murray’s win yesterday.
