Wimbledon 2010 organizers decision to schedule womans final just one hour before FIFA World Cup QF showdown between Argentina and Germany is against common sense IMO.

Instead to put start of this match hour before in 13:00h (14:00h CET), or even for example in 17:30 (18:30 CET) b/c with roof no chances for rain delay on centre court... they put start of Wimbledon WTA final in 14:00 (15:00 CET) just one hour (45 minutes actually if we count warm-ups) before FIFA WC biggest QF showdown :confused:

Once every 4 years isn't that bad.

And this final won't last that long....

Vera can watch football after this final and before her doubles final.

Time of the Wimbledon final should not be dictated by boring soccer...

Wimbledon isnt gonna move for anything or anyone.

WC should have been put back one-2 hrs, or moved to Monday

I know they won't ever do it, but I reckon they should consider having primetime finals now there is no threat of rain spoiling play.

I'd say Holland v Brazil was a bigger QF showdown :shrug: but yeah, Wimbledon comes 2nd to the WC regardless.

Turn to football now. It's more exciting at the moment. Germany scored.

We won't miss much football.....We... but what about average SPORTS FANS which are not biggest WTA fans, but like to see Wimbledons final. They miss whole 2nd set and Serena celebration/speech.

Simple stupid/wrong decision from my point of view :shrug:
In last 2 seasons Wimbledon finally make Hawk Eye and CC roof, so changing just one hour of final schedule in exceptional 2010 case will not be big movement against tradition, but very good move in terms of common sense.

It's always 2pm, why should they change it for a football match?
