To my surprise, I was asked last minute by a Wimbledon reporter to join her as she went below Centre Court to speak with Roman Zoltawski, the official All England Club trophy engraver, as he prepared for the Ladies’ Singles Championship Final.
Zoltawski lives in Poland, but has made it his tradition to drive to Wimbledon in his red convertible for the 34 years he’s been the Club’s engraver. Here is the full story with the photo attached. It’s certainly worth the read.
That’s the first time I had been up close to this trophy, so it was neat to see in person!
