Hey :) ,

I know it has been discussed in the others thread, but I start to panic a bit :tape: . Monica is not playing and Lindsay being my favourite active player :worship: 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 :kiss: ,
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 :)

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 :p ) and I am a boy. If that is possible I would be soooo happy.

Matija :kiss: .

I am hopefully deffo trying to go too. On my own *Andy-you are most welcome to take me into your cc box, i will cheer you on, i swear* (pushes kelly aside)
First week, first 4 days unless there is a wash out. I will be staying at friends, altho they don't know it yet and arriving in q half asleep at around 7 am (armed with usa flag, signed ofcourse)!
I think we all need banners, so then we can tell who is who in the masses of bloody people!...just a thought... Beckl (lene) :bounce:

Once you're logged in, click on "User CP" in the black navigation bar at the top of the page. Down the left will be a menu of options. Click on "Edit Avatar" which is about the fifth option down. It will take you to a section where you can either upload your own image or link it to a photo online. I'm sure you'll know what to do once you're there :D

Kelly that sleeping bag is so funny! I have never seen one before. lol. It might be comfy but is it warm?

Oh jan, I forgot about that flag - I still have mine too but I think I'll buy a new one for wimby. The other is on my wall, so I'll get another in case it gets wet or damaged.

I look forward to seeing you all there.

(was v fashionable, not at all tramp like).
When i drink, i drink like a trooper Kelly you are so yorkshirish. Thats one of my gem phrases!
That blowup thingy sounds ace, i want one :smash:

I would like to get one of those cards that says ACE or Good Serve or words to that effect and also a smaller flag (on a stick) that I can wave too.

This is so exciting:D
