Re: Wimbledon ticket rip off
I queued for the first week of Wimbledon for 10 years, until I made the decision to stop last year, after coming to the conclusion that the ridiculously high ticket prices and the way you are treated (I think they forget we are actually paying customers!) in the queue these days is just not worth it, when you can go to Roland Garros and see pretty much the same thing for less money and less hassle. I don't know what other people think, but IMO ever since the year of the stampede, the treatment of people in the queue has become progressively worse. This year was the first year I didn't go and I have to say there wasn't a single part of me that regretted the decision, whilst I was sitting at home watching it on TV.
The fact that they have now turned court 3 into another show court doesn't surprise me, but it also convinces me even further that I don't want to change my mind and go back there.
