Queens Club - walking towards

The day was overcast with intermittent showers. We left from Loughton Station on the Central Line and crossed the platform at Mile End to the District  line for a direct train to Barons Court Station which is no more than a couple of hundred yards from Queens Club. There were several food shops between the station and the club and we bought some lunch just in case. I sat next to a divorce solicitor from Barnet who was wearing Oakley glasses. Sadly, the raincoat seemed more useful.

Although we were at the Queen’s Club for most of the day, there were only two hours of play. We saw the game between Sam Querrey of the USA and Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia. The eventual losing finalist, Marin Cilic was scheduled to play that day but rain intervened and his match against Ivan Dodig was postponed.

Website Promotion in Sport – Your Professional Persons Website

Sam QueryThere is little point in having a website if it cannot be found and if it has little information available. As a web professional, I looked for websites of the two players we saw in action – Sam Querry and Aljaz Bedene. Only Sam Querrey has a website and even that is minimalistic – It is just a single image with no text. Sam Query
