:wavey: May I ask where are you from?

To a chippy Scot like me, Wimbledon has always epitomised everything I dislike about the English establishment. But I am a misanthropic old cynic and should not be relied upon for an objective view. ;)

Even to a snobby Home Counties girl like me :o I feel the same! :shrug:

I like queuing for Wimbledon :rolls: maybe that's strange :awww: Well I liked it when I did it in 2007 :shrug: well maybe "like" is the wrong word... I didn't mind doing it, rather :p :shrug: Going back for another round of it this year so :shrug:

One could apply most of Rose's list of complaints about Wimbledon to the USO as well :shrug: :rolls: but I still go to that every year too. The fans at the USO are very very very erm... uninformed (that is the nicest way to put it). Food is just as expensive :shrug: The weather is better, so there's that in it's favor. You cannot get a good seat in Ashe though unless you pay about $5000. I queued and had a FANTASTIC seat on Centre Court. So that is definitely in Wimbledon's favour :)

Oh and the practice courts at the USO are worse than those at Wimbledon :rolls:

I have been to Wimbledon three years ago and I actually quite like it. Probably I am the foreigner and that was my first time to see my favourite players playing. Everything was just so amazing to me. The queue, the strawberry, the souvenirs (I particularly love the ball keychain and Wimbledon towel...)

Maybe I was just blind. :p

I was not enamored by Wimbledon quite this much, probably because by the time I got to Wimbledon I had been to a few other tournaments and even two other Slams.... but I *did* get strawberries and cream because I felt it was required of me during my first time there :rolls: but this year I will not :lol: I also had the joy of sitting in the rain and having to buy a sweatshirt because it was soooo cold :rolls: although I had to do the same thing the time I went to Queens. (Another tournament that I like that a lot of people do not :lol: ) Oh and I had done a tour of the grounds when I was studying in London, so the excitement over seeing Centre Court and all that wasn't the same as if it was my first time there :)

But I still like the tournament :shrug: my least favorite tournament is probably Toronto or Cincinnati :shrug: And everyone loooooooooooooooves Cincinnati, so that one is probably just me :p

I LOVE OUTSIDE COURTS! :lol: I haven't gone inside center court in Indian Wells this year. :lol: court 4-6 are the best. Once, I sat so close behind Clement that I could see everything inside his tennis bag :rolls: The food price is "reasonable" and have many choices.

Enjoy Wimbledon :D And you're not alone - I think a lot of people enjoy the queueing - maybe I'm just way too old to spend hours on a cramped, hard, cold (often wet) pavement to see players I could see from a much closer view in Munich, or Stuttgart, or Rotterdam or wherever :shrug: I also agree that with me and Wimby, it is very much a case of that old saying "familiarity breeds contempt" - I first went when I was about 5 years old and being dragged along my my parents, so it holds absolutely no excitement or thrill for me :o

Enjoy and have a safe trip anyway.
