Exclamation Your perceptions of Wimbledon- simply say "yes" or "no" (need your help again :))

Dear MTF'ers,

Greetings again from a busy student. As some of you already know, I'm doing a project about the tennis grand slams (particularly Wimbledon), and I need to know which of the below attributes you associate with certain aspects of the tournament.

I am really grateful to everyone who responded to my last thread (Your opinions of all 4 Grand Slams (I really need your help!!- It'll take you 3 mins), and would love to have your further opinions in this one.



Ok, so all you need to do is put an [x] beside the attribute you associate with Wimb, leave the ones you don't blank. Don't worry if you've never been to Wimbledon, I just need to know your assumptions.

Also, please let me know your age & nationality for analysis purposes. If you prefer, feel free to tell me this info in a PM.

Love to all!
Genie xx

EDIT: If you don't know one of the attributes, as you've never been to the tourney, and can't imagine, please put [?]. If you leave it blank, I assume you don't associate that attribute with Wimbledon. If it's an entire section, just put "Can't help here" next to it.
