Serving up our 23 favourite tennis jokes to round off Wimbledon Fortnight
It’s the final day of Wimbledon and, as always, there’ve been some shocks and surprises along the way, such as fifteen-year-old Cori Gauff beating her idol, Venus Williams, in the first round, Andy Murray partnering with Venus’ sister, Serena, in the mixed doubles, and Woody Harrelson getting so drunk he struggled to get back to his seat.

The women’s finals ended in a win for Simona Halep against Serena Williams, the men’s doubles final took almost five hours and Nicolas Mahut got hit right in the tennis balls, much to Woody Harrelson’s surprise.

Over the course of Wimbledon Fortnight – or Wimbledon Eternity, for those who are missing their usual programming – a lot of tweeters have been feeding the atmosphere with their witticisms, and here are a few of the best.
I could watch Serena Williams and Andy Murray play tennis together all day. And then, at night, solve crimes.

Watching #Wimbledon always reminds me of the time I dated a professional tennis player.
It was awful. Love meant nothing to her.

#Wimbledon Camera Person 1: Let’s do an EXTREME close up on a random detail in the crowd- like the back of someone’s head, or their sun glasses- and then an EXTREMELY slow fade out.
Camera Person 2: Or we could just film the tennis…?
Camera Person 1: You’re fired Kevin.

And the devil took him up a high mountain and said, “This sizzling afternoon of sport, the cricket, the Grand Prix, the men’s final at Wimbledon, could be yours!” But he said, “Get away from me, for there are ordinations at Peterborough Cathedral!”
