When Sampras won the USO in 90, his first slam, his parents were shopping in a department store. They happened to be in the TVs section just as Sampras was holding up the trophy.

Alis: Andy does get preferential treatment at Wimbledon, never off Centre or 1, and that's only right and proper.

He was on Court 2 at one stage this year - without Hawkeye.  Even Johnny Mac questioned the wisdom of that.  Did we see Nadal and Federer on Number 2 - I don't think so!

Court 2 at Wimbledon does have Hawkeye (as well as court 3, I think). And also I can't remember Andy being put on there at Wimbledon. Think

I think he was on Court no 1 as opposed to Centre Court.

OK I may have been wrong about Hawkeye but Andy was definitely on Court 2 - I think in his second round match.  It was on a day that rain was forecast and no-one could understand the logic of putting him out there when his match could be interrupted.

That was Court 1, which has had Hawkeye since its introduction to Wimbledon in 2007.

As I said, Andy hasn't stepped foot outside CC or C1 since his R1 match in 2005.

I'm sure you're wrong about that one SirP - I'd stake my house on it - off to find the evidence!

Just might have to eat humble pie on this one - can't find any evidence to support my argument so maybe just another senior moment!  Mind you I still stand by my assertion that the Wimby organisers don't do Andy any favours!

Was he on court 2 at Queens?

Though actually the fact everyone was so surprised indicates that they normally do put him on CC.  Not that I'm wanting to stick up for the Wimby authorities but that did seem like something of an aberration and them wanting to be seen to be bending over backwards not to favour Andy, which even Johnnie Mac said was silly or words to that effect.

R1 - Gimeno-Traver - Centre Court (link)
R2 - Kamke - Court 1 (link)
R3 - Ljubicic - Centre Court (link)
R4 - Gasquet - Centre Court (link)
QF - Lopez - Centre Court (link)
SF - Nadal - Centre Court (link)

The Wimbledon schedulers gave Andy excellent treatment, with evening session matches against Gimeno-Traver, Kamke and Ljubicic to conserve energy for later rounds.

No chance, he would always be on centre court at Queens for singles.
