A Wimbledon queue question- maybe someone can help?

I know there are some Wimbledon veterans in here so maybe someone can help me.........

I'm planning on going this year on the middle Saturday and the Second Wednesday (not really the days I would choose but my friend can't get any other time off work). For the last couple of years I've queued for tickets for the first Monday or Tuesday and always managed to get whichever I've wanted out of Centre or No.1 Court by joining the queue at about 6pm the night before.

So what I need to know now is how much earlier the queue starts on the middle Saturday and in the second week? I am presuming that the middle Saturday is crazy and that I would never get a show court ticket by showing up at 6pm on Friday night- is this the case? How about the second Wednesday?

If there's anyone reading this who has queued in the second week and knows how it compares with the first week then I would really appreciate some info. Thanks a lot and hope y'all enjoy The Championships as much as I will!

I'm not sure what time you will need to start queuing up for Centre and Court 1 tickets on the middle Saturday - however in 2000 I started queuing up at 7am and got ground pass tickets. I guess it would be safe to start queuing up on Friday evening
