I think i have got womens semis on the final thursday.
They are 55 quid each, which i normally wouldnt pay, but maybe.....
If linds plays eastbourne, we'll see. Providing i have money by this point!

cant really afford to go to wimbledon....and cant really get time off work. Eastbourne is possible but it depends on the scheduling of my main exams which are in june...

Hi everyone. My friend Joan has got tickets for Court One on womens semi finals day which means all the semis are played on Centre so we shall have doubles matches on court 1. However we are still going to go as we can always sit on the hill and watch the big screen particularly if Lindsay is playing.

I am in the LTA ballot which is drawn on 01 March so wish me luck for some more tickets, preferably centre Court!

Cheers for now - Jan

I have thursday the 4th, which i reckon is womens semis, on centre court.
Jan I have 2 tickets, but only need one..... They are 55 quid a piece, otherwise i suppose i could sell it while i was there, for huge amounts!!!!
I still dont know if im gonna go, i prefer to go the first week, see more matches and pay less!!! (clearly from the north, a slightly cheap skate bunch).
So im unsure at the moment, but certainly have been allocated 2 tickets.

God i hope linds plays

So who is going to be in the q's, what about you Jan, with ur friend?
I will be sporting a tasteful usa flag, and a i support davenport type of t-shirt!
And will always be trying to blag my way onto centre court without a pass! I must admit they do have more security than other tournaments which makes this tricky!!!!

I read in the news paper - can't remember if it was last year or the year before, where the reporters were tipped off by a former employeee at Wimby that gate 7 (I think) was never suppervised. Apparently there was never any security or anything.

Anyway, these undercover reporters were able to walk through gate 7 without being questioned, checked or even asked for their tickets (which they didn't have). The reporters got a free day at Wimby, as well as meeting Martina Hingis, Andre Agassi and others. They also had a meal in the members section and watched a couple of center court matches!

So, I guess you could try that

-bye for now, Rachel

Beckl, let's compare...
four hours driving... versus about, oh, a 1/2 hour drive, 9 hour plane ride (and that's without stops, layovers, etc.!) ..renting hotel, figuring my way to Wimbledon.. I'd say that would be a good 24hour journey for me, at least. Even a trip to the US Open for me is a cross country journey, so count your blessings!
