Wow, awesome. Congrats, have fun. Hopefully you get to see some good matches. The past few years at Wimbledon the fourth round has produced some excellent matches(Wawrinka-Murray, Gasquet-Murray, Nadal-Youzhny).

Sorry - just had to tell someone.

Good for you. That's great that you're about to watch tennis in the "cathedral" of Tennis, the most famous tennis court in the world. A special place. Plus, you could be in for some real fireworks as both Nadal and Federer go at it! I hope to watch Wimbledon live at least a few times during my life. I'd rather watch Wimbledon live than any other tourney, with the history there especially.

I do have a pair Valiant but I'm afraid the other one is already spoken for my friend.

Thanks for your kind messages guys - I can't believe I'm going to be there on, as West Coast Ace says, one of the best days:)

Last year was Roger v Sod, Safina V Mauresmo and Murray v Stan

Congrats man! I hope you have a blast!! I was suppose to go to last years tourney. A friend Ho use to play professionally is friends with Gardnar Malloy and he gives his tickets to friends usually. At the last minute she canceled on me. Needless to say after last years final, I no longer speak to her

I would guess you have to pay to get into the grounds, but once you are in its free yeah. You will need all the money you have for the ridiculous pricing on the food and drink!

Lucky you, all 4th round matches are played on the 2nd Monday at Wimbledon, so you are guaranteed to see Murray (if he makes it that far) and a bunch of other great matches.

Im hoping to get tickets for the new court 2 for that day, it'll be cheaper but still some big names on it (Venus & Serena played on it last year).

Are you allowed to take your own food there, Ive heard its very expensive there.

Most Excellent! Gr8t times. Might u even have a chance to see Mr Fancy Pants himself?

batz
04-07-2010, 12:31 PM
No, never. Not even if he wins the tournament.

It is, and always will be, Henman hill.

Obviously I'd like to see Murray - would also be absolutely delighted to see either of Roger or Rafa - if pushed I'd choose Roger.

So how is it decided which game you can watch on the day ?
Do you get the timings on the ticket.

The ticket lets you see ALL 3 matches on centre court that day.

£74 well spent.

Only £74?

What is £74 related to a average wage of your country?

In my country it's very different I think.. I mean, the average wage here is about $1500 and a ticket like that would cost $250

I was there last year as well... Centre Court during the 2nd Rd... watched Federer play only a few feet from me as I was in the first few rows almost courtside... it was surreal!

Going again this year and camping out to get the ticket!

Do you mean monthly or per annum? The average UK wage is around £23000 pa I think.
