Unfortunately, I forgot to enter the ballot :silly: :rolleyes:

But I shall be heading there quite a few days, get some ground passes and probably queue overnight and get drunk once or twice :p :drink:

Anyone else going?

I reckon Court 1 is nicer than Centre Court actually....It also depends who you want to see. I mean, you're gonna get Henman, Murray or Federer if you're on centre court in the first few days. If you're on Court 1, you'd probably get Nadal or Roddick (which is more to my preference).

I have late 2nd week tickets (ladies semis |: ) and also plan to live in the queue for the first week + (as per normal).
*I will go the rest of the late rounds if Tim makes it that far, which he won't unfortunately.

Another question, how does the queue work? Do you just stand in line for tickets all night long? and do you have to queue for ground passes? how do you get those?

ok, more like three questions :lol:

Yeah basically people start queing the day before. So if you want centre court tickets I'd advise you to get there the afternoon before, people usually start queuing about 2pm. Court 1 you can usually arrive early evening or so (these are rough estimates based on my experience, it's not guaranteed!). It also depends who's playing on the day, if there are Brits playing it's usually busy. Ground passes the first few days aren't too hard to get, as long as you arrive before about 8.00am you're pretty likely to get them.

Yknow one day last year, me and a friend got to the queue at about 2.30ish in the morning and got great tickets for court 1. We were fourth row from the court which was fantastic. We got to see Nadal, Sharapova and Murray (: It was good luck, because most people queuing wanted to see Henman (lose to Tursonov :o) on Centre. The year before that, i got there at about 5am and saw Myskina and Roddick on court 2, so that was also great and we were put in the third row.

Who needs the ballot? :p
