Wimbledon 2005

Hey ,

I know it has been discussed in the others thread, but I start to panic a bit . Monica is not playing and Lindsay being my favourite active player I decided to go to Wimbledon. I will first go to Eastbourne qualifying and maindraw and work as a reporter. On the Sunday before Champs I come to London and will stay there till monday (8 days). In Eastbourne I booked myself a room and I am not worried about that part of my trip. What I am worried about is Wimbledon. I booked a room near the Championship and my plan is to sleep in the room till like 4 am and then go queue. Does it sound reasonable? IS THERE ANYONE WILLING TO SHARE THE TENT? Of course I would pay half of what is costs to be there. How much money do I need for tickets? When I que is it certain I will get a ground pass? Gosh, I am so AFRAID. I am also very happy when I think that I will meet you there and hope we will have a great time . I hope you will accept me as a Lindsay fan. OK, those are my quetions for now. I hope you could help me also later when I have some.

Greetings for all ,
Matija.

Hiya...i'm sure u can meet up with us TOPs...what ya say TOPS?? Ticket prices vary depending on what ones u want!
Basic ground passes are £14
Court 2 are around £20
Court 1 £30 ish i THINK
and Centre Court...depending on the day £30-60
just rough estimates at prices!

Joining the queue at 4am is a good time, i did that last year and got in no problem...that way u wont need a tent coz it'l be light by then.

hope it helps

Thank you! When you don't have a tent what do you do for those few hours? I would be glad to join TOPs. I really like coming to this part of the WtaWorld.com 'cause you all seem very nice .

Hey Kelly,

So it means you would be keen to share a tent? That would be superb . I hope it is not a problem that you are a girl (or so it seems ) and I am a boy. If that is possible I would be soooo happy.

Matija .
