Hitch your wagon to a star

The Queen visits Wimbledon for the first time in 33 years By Shane Bacon

Thursday at the 2010 Wimbledon will forever be known as Queen Day, as Queen Elizabeth II visited the tournament for the first time since 1977.

The queen had a lengthy itinerary on hand that included meeting and greeting some of the youngsters, a ton of the other players and a front row seat to Centre Court where she watched Andy Murray take down Jarkko Nieminen 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.

Among the players the queen was able to say hello to included Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, Venus and Serena Williams, and some former winners here, including Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova.

While it was great to see the queen making her way around the grounds at Wimbledon, she informed everyone that she isn't that big of a tennis fan. That couldn't have been more evident than a humorous exchange she had with Navratilova that ESPN reported during its coverage of the event.

According to Hannah Storm, the queen asked Navratilova if she had played Wimbledon often, to which the former nine-time champion humbly answered yes.

Honestly, you can't blame the queen for not knowing everything about the tennis world. She has worn the crown for 58 years, so it isn't like we're dealing with a spring chicken here.

Nonetheless, it was cool to see the queen on such sacred grounds of the sporting world. There is almost something calming about having someone so referred visit a place of such history and tradition.

The one thing the queen isn't going to do? Stay for the conclusion of the marathon match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut.
