i have the same feeling as you. I am yearning to go (because of the chance to get a centre court ticket) but cannot bear the idea of travelling alone and THEN waiting around like a lemon in the queue.

I'd be travelling from Bedford, hoping to arrive in the queue for around 8am.

Does anyone reckon that will be too late?

Anyone else thinking of going? A last-minute WTA World gathering, meeting outside Southfields tube station at about 8am?

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.

normally, yes, but when there are about 11,000 available instead of the normal 500? that's 22 times as many centre court tickets available than usual. Do you advise getting there before 6am?

hi debra - thanks for researching the trains and for the offer. I've been thinking: the last time I went to Wimbledon I had got a little bit of sleep the night before but still felt totally awful and sick all day long. I really won't be able to manage the whole night as well as the whole day. I think I'll have to give it a miss and watch from my digi-box instead.

I hope you have a great day and survive the queuing experience - i'm sure there'll be loads of friendly faces in the queue and it will go in no time. at leats the gates open at 9am.

good luck!
