Wimbledon's hill is busy already. Lots of umbrellas being used, but no chance of rain

Rafael Nadal certainly knows how to clear a hill

Murray Mound is packed #Wimbledon

This is where I get to watch the tennis. Wimbledon broadcasting roof has been my home for 2 weeks

Every vantage point taken around Court 18. Britain's Liam Broady has never had support like this before

Managed to leave my rooftop position for ten minutes. What a match inside my favourite sporting arena

A Wimbledon legend sharing Broadcast Centre roof with me this afternoon - Billie Jean King

A familiar face beneath that White cap. Martina Navratilova below me on Court 18 - as competitive as ever

Tomic v Malisse is match under my balcony. Malisse not happy and complaining to umpire. 5-0 down first set

They're waiting to go on air with 'Today at Wimbledon' if Djokovic wins soon

I've got a visitor to my rooftop broadcast position. 18 year old Bernard Tomic, who's beaten 5th seed Soderling

Today's lunch in Wimbledon media canteen. Salad and water. £11.60

This is what you get for £12.80 in the media canteen

in the middle of that scrum is an unfazed Rafael Nadal, who's been patiently signing autographs

Glorious view from roof of Wimbledon's broadcasting building - my home for much of next fortnight

Just out of sight of the players at Queens my cameraman is logging on to French #olympictickets site!

Here's the London Olympic torch, which has just been unveiled. 8000 holes in it symbolise 8000 torchbearers

If you don't manage to get tickets for stadium your best view might be from top of this. Orbit's growing fast

Champions League Trophy is heading off on a tour of London

And here they all are. Hoping to hear Figo's views ahead of Real-Barca semi
