End of Term Wrap-Up

Well i had my last tutorial yesterday and now it's time for the tedious task of packing everything i own into four boxes and getting ready to go home. It's been a great year at Oxford and at no point this year have i had any regrets about coming here, though i'm also extremely excited about getting home!

The main part of this post is to document my trip to Queen's Club in London. I'm a ridiculously massive tennis fan, i play tennis up to 5 times a week and my specialist subject in mastermind would definitely be tennis related. I don't just follow the top 10 players but i've a pretty good grasp of who is on the rise as a player in the top 1000. Unfortunately though there isn't any quality tennis tournaments where i live so being in Oxford allowed me to travel down to London to watcht the first day of qualifying for the ATP tournament at Queen's. I was able to watch players i've been following such as Alex Slabinsky, James Ward and Richard Bloomfield and was able to watch players in the top 50 like Andy Roddick, Lleyton Hewitt, Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Richard Gasquet etc practicing on the grass. The trip to Queen's was one of the highlights of this term for me and i had an absolutely amazing time. Here's a couple of my best photos..
