Wimbledon men's final not moving if England reach World Cup showpiece

  • Novak Djokovic is hoping to see a full court for the men’s final but the lure of football may be too much to resist

The rules of entry to the grounds of SW19 had previously stated that devices "must be switched off in and around the courts of play", although the rules appear to have been relaxed with England on the verge of reaching a historic final.

Defending champion Roger Federer, who is more than likely to be playing in Sunday´s final, joked that maybe the World Cup final should move to accommodate the Wimbledon title match.

Wimbledon chief executive Richard Lewis stuck to his view that spectators coming to the grasscourt championships expect to see tennis and said that big-screen policy will remain in place.

"We are a sold-out event and there's massive interest", he said.

Serena beats Giorgi in three sets, makes Wimbledon semis
If her best is anything like we saw Tuesday, it seems like it will be an incredibly hard task for Goerges to pull off the victory. Williams hasn't faced a seeded player yet, and she won't on Tuesday, either, instead facing 52nd-ranked Camila Giorgi of Italy.

"I saw a few pictures the size of Croatia compared to size of Russian Federation, and I think if we are already to be in semi-finals is unbelievable, but if we can make it further, it´s really good, as well".

In a significant relaxation of its rules, the All England Lawn Tennis Club said spectators could even cheer on Gareth Southgate's team.

"It's a completely different issue", he said. "We have free public Wi-Fi in many areas, so if people want to watch quietly on their phone or tablet they are able to do so". "The WiFi signal, by the way, worked brilliantly on Saturday".

"I gather it wasn't very successful because it did interrupt people's enjoyment of the tennis and what we did last Saturday actually did work very well", added Lewis.

Kate Middleton, Pippa and Carole's style similarities at Prince Louis' christening
Princess Diana's favourite flower was the white rose - leading many to think Kate was making a subtle nod to her. Prince Louis was born on April 23 and is a younger brother to Prince George , 4, and Princess Charlotte , 3.

Roger Federer saw the amusing side of a possible World Cup-Wimbledon final clash and was more concerned about what effect the tennis could have on the viewing ratings of the football. "They'll hear every point, wow, love-15, 15-30", he said. The players [at the World Cup] are going to look up in the crowd and not understand what's going on at Wimbledon!

If you can't beat them, join them.

There were several people keeping up with action on their phones, with one woman kitted out in England attire watching on a bench while waiting for Martina Navratilova to play her women's invitational doubles match on Court Three.

In the women's draw, Serena Williams - chasing an eighth Wimbledon singles title - triumphed over fellow mother Evgeniya Rodina.
