I enter the ballot every year but was only successful once and that was in 2007 when i got 2 tickets for the first Friday. I usually Queue or get on ticketmaster the day before play. Last year i got ladies semi final ticket from these people. I know its expensive but the seat was amazing the only way i would have had a better view would have been if i was sat in the Royal Box.

It's because Wimbledon is generally attended by toffs and "celebrities" who know very little about Tennis. It's more of an event to be seen at, sadly.

It's because these are debenture tickets, thats why they are expensive.

I entered the TA ballot for the first time and scored a womens SF ticket. Too bad the lineup was not as desired.

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

Ah the queue is good fun. If you want Centre Court you need to queue overnight. But i get in the queue at 5am the day of play and still get a show court 1 or 2. Got the choice on the first Tuesday which was great. Ah yeah the olympics are a total shambles i got football tics not impressed as i wanted the tennis really.
