Now that the world cup is starting this coming weekend, do you think that it'll affect Wimbledon? Will the players be a little more distracted when their country plays? Do you think Wimby will get less of an audience/coverage during the WC?

Well there will be US Open golf as well.
I think audience will be split. World cup will get more attention as it is once a 4 year event. It will also be more significant because you are fan of country but not an individual player.

The audience will be hurt slightly, but I'm sure there'll be plenty of middle class women here in Blighty who'll watch Wimbledon over the football.
