Is the crowd at Queens

entirely made up of members of the British Royal family?

There has to be some reason why they are the stiffest, poshest looking people i've ever seen in my life. Its like watching a tournament in the 17th century.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician

I turned up in a full Nike tracksuit, large gold chain around my neck and a cigarette behind my ear. Barstewards wouldn't let me in

Why else would it be called Queens?

Re: Is the crowd at Queens

The Queen should be there to present the trophy since its called after her. Not the Duchess of nobodyknowsville

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Is the crowd at Queens

its hardly surprising considering the amount they charge for centre court and court 1, let alone the rest of the courts. unfortunately this tournament is cattered to the wealthy upper class.

Re: Is the crowd at Queens

Years ago I joined the mailing list for the (then) Stella Artois tournament.

You know when you have to put in your title, and there's normally a little drop down box with Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms? Well, at Queen's club, the little drop down box includes the following options: King, Queen, Princess, Prince, Duke, Duchess...etc. Not sure if it's still the same now that Aegon have taken over the championships, but it sure was the case a few years ago.

As to the club itself: I was there yesterday, so they do let normal people in. Trouble is, you're far outnumbered by the society crowd who are there to be seen. The minute the Murray match finished yesterday they were deserting the courts to go the (private) buffet. Watch the coverage closely: it looks like they were standing up to applaud his win, but trust me, they weren't. They didn't even bother with the post-match interview.

The atmosphere at Wimbledon is nowhere near as bad. Queen's Club represents everything that's rotten in British tennis and explains a great deal about why we don't have more professional players.

Time for Pimms...
