Accommodation in London should be easy to find out for yourself. Depends a lot on your budget and taste, in any case. Don't expect to being staying close to Roehampton as it's a posh area.

How to travel will depend on where you're traveling from, obviously. But my route has always been to take the tube to Hammersmith and City, and then the 72 or 33 bus (I think). It's still about a 10- to 15-minute walk from the bus station after that, but it's straightforward down one road. There may of course have been changes this year.

Avoid taxis unless you are loaded.

Hammersmith would be a good area to stay in travel-wise, but might be unadventurous otherwise. Anything that's close to a tube stop that's on a line that also stops at Hammersmith & City would be convenient. You should expect to do a fair amount of travelling to get to Roehampton, so it doesn't really matter all that much.

The stop is the Barnes Red Lion football club, I think. You don't tell the bus driver; you press the stop button. Then you just turn the corner and walk down Priory Lane for 10+ minutes. It's a long-ass road. You will pass a nursery (the Bee's Knees I think) on your right, the LTA as well. And then you turn right at some red mail box.

Again, all of this is based on previous experiences, so any changes might invalidate this advice.

Yeah (dodgy train station, by the way). The football club is a little closer to Priory Lane though.

Maybe dodgy was the wrong word, but it doesn't look like a proper train station. It's tucked away right on the side of the road sort of in the middle of nowhere. Weird for a train station.

Re: Qualifying Entry List (updated June 12, 2013)

I really look forward to see Sebastian Rieschick but i don't know if he is ready and will be in London?!

He is so talented. I can remember how he nearly beat Tomic on grass in 2011. Would be great to see him at Wimbledon Q.
