Scot crowned double Wimbledon Champion at 75!

Posted By: Staff

London, Aug.19 (ANI): A Scot has been crowned a double Wimbledon champion at the age of 75.

Veteran tennis player Jimmy Wood has scooped more titles than Andy Murray in his long career. And now he's trumped the young upstart once again by being crowned the British Veteran singles and doubles champ at the world famous venue, reports The Scotsman.

Wood, a grandfather from Aberdeen, said: "Tennis is a sport you can play from the cradle to the grave. As I'm getting older I'm getting slower. I wouldn't be any match for a Federer or a Murray.

"But I'm still fit, and competitive. I'll never retire. I want to pop my clogs on the tennis court." (ANI)
