I certainly don't speak on behalf of 99.999999% of my deluded country, but without a doubt Wimbledon.

A bit of both but I'll pay more attention to the World Cup when the Socceroos is playing

Here it will be 100%, only a handful of tennis fanatics will watch wimbledon, obviously if Brazil is not playing at the same time!

But I´ll watch Wimbledon definetely, another Williams winning a trophy!

100% tennis.

Not looking forward to my dad shouting at the television at the crack of dawn when the football's on.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Wimbledon, though will be following what's going on in the world of soccer. Could never get into the sport in and of itself, but every 2 years between the World Cup and the Euro Cup I tune in to see who's winning/losing/won.

Jelena Dokic.Vera Zvonareva.Tatiana Golovin.Mary Pierce.Monica Seles.Martina Hingis.Anna Kournikova

+1.

But if the Wimbledon finals don't have Federer, Williams, Jankovic, Henin, or any of my favourites (a.k.a French Open disaster), I might follow football then.

Wimbledon I'll follow more, but I'll watch a lot of the soccer too. I hope the All Whites at least keep some matches tight.
Both time zones are a bitch.

Serena Williams: I'm going for team Sharapova 'coz she's hot
CAREER GRAND SLAM.

Bring on all the pretenders. Someday, WE WILL BE REMEMBERED

Re: Which event will you pay more attention to? 2010 Wimbledon or S Africa World Cup?

Wimbeldon. I like football but I follow Tennis more.
I will be watching the world cup closely when Australia are involved, otherwise my main focus in those weeks will be Wimbeldon.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?
