when are wimbledon lottery results announced ?

I entered for the Wimbledon lottery, and have my fingers crossed (if I win, grandma has promised to keep the kids, and we are off to our first vacation-without-kids - and our first trip to London !!).

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.

Thanks Rosie! I wasn't sure how it was done either! Like many people, I have my fingers crossed for one of the last tickets available!

It was my first time applying this year and i managed to get womens semi final tickets very surprising, i am not usually lucky. I expected some crap court 1 tickets for the final few days probably would have turned them down tho

Re: when are wimbledon lottery results announced ?

don't worry sometimes they allocate them and take forever sending them out! they suck like that sometimes! last year 2 of my mates sent in the same day and one got their answer a month after the other and the one who had the daly had finals day so it's just pot luck! sometimes they're just slow posting to certain areas too.!

Good Luck to my boys

Re: when are wimbledon lottery results announced ?

Yeah, when I got my finals tickets last year, they came late Feburary and they weren't returns. So maybe you live in a slow post area like me.

I'm hoping that's again the case this year with me..

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?
