Anybody know when the lottery is held ? When are winners notified ? On wimbledon.org it just says the lottery will be held in Jan, has anybody else been notified they got tickets as yet ?
Waiting with fingers crossed...
They start in mid-January Sunil - the Final is balloted first, then the semi-finals and then backwards until the first Monday. I know the semis have already been allocated, so they're probably on the 1st week tickets about now. It finishes in the middle of this month - but you may still get returns in March, if any of the people first successful in the ballot turn their ticket offer down so their tickets get re-balloted. Hope that helps a bit - and good luck.
