The 'we're going to Wimbledon' thread [Part 2]

I dont care if its early, which of u lot has tickets?! I havent had any come through. Im actually gutted....!

But I might try some blagging as I am the new sports sec for my hall at uni (Loughborough Uni and its really sporty) so I might go over to the LTA academy and tell them im a sports secretary and see what I can get!

OOO a wimby thread already, i'm liking this!
I obviously have no ballot tickets, cos i have just come back from melb and spent all my money, which already seems like 4 months ago, due to the CRAP WEATHER.
I plan on going first week, want some doubles action tho, do you know when that starts?
Where are debenture seats.. are they those proper high up ones?
I prefer to watch the non top ten ish players, as at least they get the crap courts to play on and the matches are not totally one sided.
Plus linds will be on cc, c1 or that shit court where you cant see bugger all on.... you know the one i mean, where there is reserved seating, which is always empty and then about 5 million ground pass holders packed onto some crappy steps at the top and you cant see bugger all and even lindsay who is proper tall looks like a midget.
OOO ive started a rant already and its not even march!

(wish i was back in melbourne)

maybe you could even learn to spell W-I-M-B-L-E-D-O-N before you go!?!

I went last year and my best advice to anyone would be to get yourself organised with a tent and sleeping bag. You'll have the craic and the atmosphere with other people queueing-as seen on these boards Wimbledon does of course attract a lot of the prawn sandwich, no nothing about tennis brigade but in the queue you will meet the real hardcore. Also especially from the quarters on you'll easily get tickets for centre and court 1 if you get up early enough.

Lets hope she will make into the second round and not get injured
Who are you, and what are your other usenames. When you first joined, you put TOP forever in your sig, but, had never posted here.

Nobody in their right mind spells Wimbledon as Winbledon, no matter how retarded they are.

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.

I met two girls in Wimbledon last year with very cool and funny tshirts-the ones with Lindsay punching Tim Henman. Don't be ashamed of wearing the tshirts, I thought they looked great and was thinking I might wear one myself this year, do ye reckon I'd look completely daft ?!
