if so, bargain
Do you need to camp outside for the ground ticket?

I'd be going after work each day - late entry is 5pm+, they release new tickets then and there's barely any queue/sometimes no queue at all...

Hopefully I won't catch any of it on the big screen, because if I do, it means he's pissing around. If the weather delays it, then that's a different matter.

£14 is the late entry price I believe. Not sure how much the normal ground tickets are/whether they are the same price... light stops plays about 9:30 or so, so I'll get a decent amount of tennis - looking at the schedule, I'll probably be able to see Almagro, Mahut, Malisse, maybe The Fog, Petzschner matches, which is certainly fine by me I'm sure I'll just be going round "sampling" the courts.

I won't be able to watch Nole's match tomorrow because it's at 7am for me and I have to leave for work at 7.30am. I'll just catch a couple of games and hopefully relax after seeing him in good shape.

I hope Nole has a good start.

Re: Grass is made for eating! Wimbledon cheering thread: R1 vs JC Ferrero

There is something weird happened to me. Last year just before the SF vs Tsonga in Wimbledon, I dreamt Novak winning Wimbledon for the 1st time. I was really upset when I woke up and found out it was just a dream. Nole still has to win 2 matches to win the title and fulfill his dream. I thought my dream was a sign that he will win the title and he indeed won. I couldn't believe it really. That probably was my happiest tennis moment in my life.

Yesterday, I dreamt he wins Wimbledon for the 2nd time. WTF??!!! Is this a sign too? Maybe ?! I hope.

Djoko fans!

I wanted to be awake early to see this really stupendous time for Nole. I think one of the great moments in a player’s life is to step out on Centre Court as The Champion. Wimbledon makes that a special occasion and it’s one of the nicest things about the tournament.

Now I realize that even tho I got up at 4:30 a.m. that special time doesn’t happen until 6 a.m. my time.

Re: Grass is made for eating! Wimbledon cheering thread: R1 vs JC Ferrero

hi guysss
Nole Rules, i hope that your dream will come true, this time too
I am very excited to see him stepping out on the court. Wish him all the luck
somehow i feel he won't need it. he must be very confident and that's it.
when i was younger i used to cheer for ferrero so it will be very interesting to watch two of my favourite players. thank you wimbledon draw

The grass is soooo pretty on opening day

Not sure what the elbow tape is all about

I like the piping on Nole’s shirt.
