It’s the 2019 Wimbledon men’s final. Reigning champion and No 1 seed Novak Djokovic against Roger Federer, the darling of SW19.
Should No 2 seed Federer win, it would give the ageless Swiss a ninth Wimbledon title and take him to 21 grand-slam trophies, three ahead of Nadal and six clear of Djokovic.
Now you’re probably wishing Andy Murray or some other home grown human was competing in the final. But there is one aspect of the final that will be forever Scottish. The white lines!
Every match and every shout of out relies on those crisp clean white lines of beauty to be in pristine condition no matter the weather. And they are produced right here in Moray ! . By The White Line Organic Guano Company based in Elgin Moray. For 400 years they have produced the ‘paint’ for the tennis lines at Wimbledon and for every other top grass court tournament including Scotlands very own Murdie Open.
Dave Love from TWLOGC explains, “ The abundance of seagulls and pigeons in the Elgin area allows us to collect their Poop/Gauano and use this as the main ingredient in oor Paint/Shitemush Line marking liquid. It is an extremely flowable smooth, high density white poop based line marking liquid with excellent colour performance on dilution. The Seagull arse excrement is suitable for multi surface types. Has outstanding whiteness (used as industry benchmark). Whilst the Pigeon excess liquid gut contents is great for use on turf, red and grey shale and artificial turf.”
So next time Dkojovic does the splits across the baseline of birds mess, or Federer Ace’s one doon the skidmark of seabird shite mind its all made right here in Moray.
