    You'll definitely get Centre Court if you are there from 3pm. Unless things have changed since I last camped (in 2009), you should get Centre if you are there from about 5pm. Of course it does depend on the order of play.
    Certainly if they put Roger or Rafa on Court 1 then you will have no trouble getting Centre!

    Unless things have changed dramatically in the last 3-4 years if you are in line by 3 you will get center court for wednesday. Come back and tell us how it went. :)

    The only thing that could happen to spoil it is the rain. Scattered showers are scheduled for Wednesday, but if it was raining heavily then I would imagine everyone would want Centre because it's the only court with a roof.
    But still, even then, 3pm should be ok.

    Go to a Roger match and hold up a sign saying "Paul Anaconda = GENIUS!"

    That way we'll know it's definitely someone from TT :)

    Print out a massive poster of a golden eagle and hold that up.

    Wigs are so unoriginal.

    This poster will guarantee a TV appearance:

    Me and my girlfriend queued for two nights last year to get quarter finals tickets. we were like the 5th people in the queue, it was a great atmosphere, lots of chilling out, made a banner, headed to the village.

    advice- don't leave the queue for too long, and if you do, make sure someone else has your back either side of you in case someone comes and asks to see your ticket, get them to say you'll be back soon etc. we were totally saved that way.

    Well I sure hope you got your centre court tickets today, being that it's the only court with any tennis right now!
