That set off the most joyful Centre Court celebration in my four decades of covering Wimbledon for the Globe. Starving for a homebody champion, the Brits had saluted but one in 40 years (Ann Jones in 1969), and uniquely here were two stylish players meeting on court. Bursting with pride and glee, the crowd serenaded Ginny with "For She's a Jolly Good Fellow!" Queen E. never returned, nor have any of her subjects come close to the winner's circle.
