” Fantastic, I mean it just oozes class, I’ve been coming here for more than 30 years now, on a pretty regular basis whenever I’m in England in the summer, it’s been fabulous, there’s just something about this tradition, there’s history, it exudes class, like I mentioned, this quality, the vibes are different, the crowds are different, it’s a lot softer than football or cricketing crowds but it’s quality,” he told Star Sports.

Shastri also talked about the Indian players participating in Wimbledon and shared an anecdote about when he first watched Wimbledon in 1982.

“Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi did it for years, Vijay Amritraj did it before that, in fact, the first time I ever came into the Wimbledon was in 1982, when Connors won it and Vijay brought us in and he took us into the dressing room, he took Sunny and me into the locker room, as they say, not the dressing room and met Jimmy Connors at that time and I’ve been coming ever since,” he added.
