Your best bet is to go on a London Tourist Board website and check out Hotels in the areas nearby. Look for anywhere with a post code of SW19, or in the areas of Putney, Earl's Court or Fulham. I know there is a "TravelLodge" in Putney (2 stops on the tube away) - but although it normally has "special offer rooms" for about £50.00 per night which is really cheap for London, the price rises to over £100.00 during Wimbledon. It's hard for me to advise as I live nearby so never have to get accomodation, but I know there are quite a few places in Earl's Court which is about 10 minutes tube ride away (Wimby is about 10 minutes walk away from Southfields Station and trains run from 5.30am until after midnight). Good Luck anyway.
