Hey guys just found out that i am pretty sure i am going to wimbledon this year!! went last year and the year before. the first year we saw no rain cos it rained all the time! last year i saw the Bryans and got their autograph, saw federer, roddick and sharapova. was so good!! richard was playing too and we walked past his court and heard them cheering but it was a court you had to queue for and we didnt have time :( just wondering if anyelse is going this year as well? :) :)

:eek: I wish I could do that! I'm definitely going though, I'm hopefully camping out with friends on the second monday, and if my brother can get tickets we'll go another day as well. If he doesn't get tickets, I might get him to come and queue up with me anyway! :)

I live 10 minutes from Wimbledon.. kinda luck XD But this would be my first outing to Wimbledon... Kind of STUPID seeing as i've been living in this area for 8 years now. Why didn't I think of it before?

Anyway yes, 13 days for me. Best part.
FOR FREE <33
But that fact i'm not entirely sure about yet. But still 13 days! YAY!

Maybe I'll see some of you :)

It takes me about 2/3 hours depending on the traffic but i still have to get up at 4/5am because we like to get there and be in the queue nice and early (about 7.30ish) so we can get in in time to see the start of play at 12. Although if I'm queueing up overnight I won't have to get up too early, although I probably won't go to sleep at all!

and you definitely can't go and queue up? I'm sure you would be able to, you don't have to be there super early to get in, you could probably manage it. :confused: unless you're on holiday that is, but I'm sure you'll have a great time then anyway! :)

Suzi

Queens as well!! :eek: lucky you

Lina
04-26-2006, 11:57 PM
I have ground pass for the Tuesday and tickets for the final sunday at queens.
Hopefully richard will be playing on his birthday!!! But then I don't want him to lose on his birthday either Cos ya know Andy has to win Queen's. :P but we'll see what happens.

I was going to go to Notthingham too, but it was like 2 hours on the train and in total I would have to travel 5 hours. and that was going to be pure insanity that. So I'm sticking to my queen's and wimbledon. hehe

I'm sure I'll bump into him lots...ill make sure he knows me by the end of wimbledon :P

Hmmm Lina isnt Richard gonna play Nottingham again this yr? so he wouldnt play Queens on his birthday, cuz last yr his birthday was on the Nottingham final...at least thats wat I think. Anyway Lina I still have to make my list of players that I want you to stalk for me. :lol:

I think I should start a thread going for people to leave messages for his birthday and i might kind of print it off and do something with it and give it to him for his birthday if I should see him at Queen's. =)
