This may not be the thread to ask this but re:

Wimbledon -- what does one have to do to get tickets? for Centre Court? for Court 1? for other courts? Is it necessary to line up overnight in a tent? If you line up early in the morning [as in before 8.00am] what kind of tickets can you hope to get? Which days can you line up for tickets, e.g., is it possible to do this and get tickets for R16 and beyond?

I realize that there are many restrictions, etc. but I would appreciate any info from experienced Wimby-goers, whether here or in a PM.

Thanks!

Horrible :sad: It is probably the best clay court he could want to face Almagro on...but he won't win the match from the back of the court. If he charges the net he'll probably get passed a lot. Very tough match, but I won't be shocked to see him win it...it is possible, but chances aren't high. Federer R2 is, well.... :wavey: top 50 Tim :sad:

i really hope tim will come to the net cos that is the only way he is going to win, unless he gives almagro absolutely no pace whatsoever.

its a pretty funny interview, kind of focusing on the fact he is canadian

No pace could work...he needs to study Volandri the night before the match. :lol: He'll have to charge the net I think...off virtually every first serve. He will struggle to break the Almagro serve I think.

Yeah it was a good interview. Ross is a funny guy...£500 on Greg to beat him :lol:

yeah, i was thinking he needs to play a bit like volandri. he could use his slice to his advantage. and make almagro pass him, cos if he stays at the back, he'll stand no chance.

greg was sort of a last minute replacement. petre andre and jordan were supposed to be on, but petre andre was inconsiderate and went and contracted meningitis, with no thought for the tv commitment he had made

Ah!! I had a feeling I read somewhere that they were supposed to be on. Still, it was probably the best time to have Greg on the show given that he has only been retired for a month. He was a worthy replacement :yeah:

yeah, he has a personality. if andy murray ever went on there, his lack of personality would come right through

It already has...on the 20 second soundbites they put on the BBC website.. :lol:

Still, he seems decent enough and is a great tennis player.. [although I know that you disagree.. :lol: ]

Gulbis is beatable...but not a cert. Soderling would probably nab him in R2 though. Nadal wouldn't be fun, no :sad:
