Dick Enberg Working His Final Wimbledon

Legendary announcer Dick Enberg will call his 32nd and final Wimbledon tournament starting Monday.

“It’s part of 5 decades, starting in 1979, a total of 32 Wimbledons,” Enberg told the San Diego Union-Tribune via email from England. “The decision was mine to make this my last Wimbledon and ESPN was sensitive to give me a chance to say goodbye to an event that has been my favorite.”

Enberg will do 10 “vignettes” to reflect on his 30-plus years calling action from Wimbledon. He will return to his play-by-play duties with the San Diego Padres on July 6.
