How expensive is a taxi from Heathrow to Earls Court? 30 sterling pounds ?

Re: Tips and practical info .....?

Where do the players play the qualies ? Where do they practrice ? I heard that they don't practrice and they don't play the qualies in the main stadium. And how much does it cost ? Thanks a lot in advance for your quick reply.

Re: Tips and practical info .....?

they play the qualies @ roehampton near wimbledon

Remember cuddles in the kitchen to get things off the ground, and it was up up and away
but its right hard to remember that on a day like today when you're all argumentative and got the face on...right then mardy bum...

Said, who's that girl there
I wonder what went wrong so that she had to roam the streets
She don't do major credit cards I doubt she does receipts
Its all not quite legitimate...

And I can't be arsed to carry on in this debate when you say I don't care, but of course I do, yeah I clearly do...

Go on the tube - Heathrow Express is awesome, £15 methinks. Its well signposted, depends which terminal you fly into - but I could tell you exactly where to go from terminal 4. Heathrow Express take you directly to Paddington Station and you can get the tube from there. Hope that helps.

Absolutely no idea. There are practise courts on site at Wimbledon but you don't get good access to them.

Re: Tips and practical info .....?

Thanks Rosie and Chrissiej

Where there are the qualies, players don't practrice at the same place ? It's stupid. It's not like that in Monaco, Roland-Garros, or at the US Open

In Wimbly, they always want to make things different !!!
