What fun!  Action, tension, and love-all.  According to the BBC, Matt Harvey will write a poem every day during the annunal two-week All England Lawn Tennis Championship.

The poetry will be published online and in podcasts, and Harvey will also keep a blog, tweet, and recite his poems to queueing spectators.

"It's an honour," he said; "I'm acutely conscious it's the only time I'll come first in anything at Wimbledon, unless you count the queue for strawberries."

His first poem as Championships Poet 2010 is called "Grandest of Slams."
