The All England Club Wimbledon Championships, which start on 29th June 2015, has recently become something of a Eurozone event with many of the top seeds emanating from this part of the world: Djokovic and Ivanovic from Serbia for example, Berdych, Safarova and Kvitova from the Czech Republic, Cilic from Croatia, Wozniacki from Denmark, Sharapova and Makarova from Russia, Halep from Romania and Kerber from Germany.
Why not visit Europe this summer via train with Voyages-Sncf.com, travelling to the country of your favourite tennis star?
Roger Federer is from Basel in Switzerland where one of the most fun swims in Europe takes place every August – the Basel Rhine Swim only happens once a year on the 18th August. www.basel.com/en/portrait/rhine-life – just £159* return at the moment via Paris with all that beautiful scenery en route.
Jo-Wilfred Tsonga was born in Le Mans in France which has just seen the dramatic 24 hour race take place – less than £150* now and an easy trip via Lille for example from London St. Pancras.
Rafa Nadal is from Mallorca so an interesting journey with breakfast in London, lunch in Paris and dinner in Barcelona – currently under £244*, before zipping across the Med to the Balearic Islands.
Gael Monfils is the fastest man on the tour – the most athletic and comes from Paris where life is indeed fast and fun…and so easy to get to with departures from London St. Pancras all day long. Prices at the moment start at just over £144*
Not forgetting the girls – Angelique Kerber comes from Bremen in northwest Germany where each August they hold the most amazing Maritime Festival recognising the seafaring past of the town. Tallships are among the top attractions. From the UK prices are currently under £XXX*,
So have fun watching Wimbledon this year and maybe think about where ultimately appeals to you to travel to with Voyages-sncf.com. We would say go to the home of the winner ….but we do not sell tickets within the UK!
