Lol @ show courts. 1000000x smaller than they look on TV and I can't be arsed to pay £50 to wait 3 3 setters, one of which is Federer's "artistry... oh isn't he so amazing" in beating a 15 year old Lithuanian.

Though I'd love to see Murray on a show court.

It's all about being there in the queue at 8am and then on outside courts all day!


It was pretty ironic since the best match we saw wasn't even on the court that we paid for, it was one of the outside courts. Court number 2 was really really nice though since they've re-done it and I just got really lucky with who was playing that day.

Is court 3 the one which is sunken now, the latest one to be converted into a "stadium." We wondered in at the end of the day (very late, they had even taken down the net hence why they let us stroll in) and it looks amazing. Here is my picture of it.

Yeah. There was a really nice atmosphere, still big enough for you to feel part of a crowd, but still small enough that you could actually see play!

One day, one bloody day, I shall camp. In fact one year I am sooo going to queue to get in everyday. Well except then I would miss watching it on the tv and I do love that side of Wimbledon... Gah such hard decisions!
Seriously, this year I don't care who I see play, as long as the weathers nice Very Happy

Wait yeah that one is court 2, courts 3 and 4 are the ones by the tall building that you can just stand and watch.

What was Court 3 last year has been rebuilt for this year and it's basically a smaller version of Court 2.

**** camping haha. I see no reason why I wont be going 40+ more times in my life, ONE of these I will get on centre just though the ballot! The only time we have been on centre was as our friends basically decided they couldn't be arsed to go, so I bullied my Mum into taking me.

Last years was insane amounts of fun, easily one of the most fun days I've had in years, and I didn't touch a drop of alcohol haha. I was saying to a mate I think it'd be a laugh just to go on the last Sunday and watch the mens final on Henman Hill, it's like a fiver for a ground ticket.

I see no reason why I won't go every year! And yeah that would be pretty amazing, but then I do like sitting at home and hearing all the chat and getting to shout what I think... I can imagine that being there when there's not many other people around would be INSANE. I went just into the shop once in like october and that was pretty special.

Yeah I'd probably just enjoy being there in the rain too... Ha last year I was wearing this White skirt and it was really windy, and it kept blowing up! Half of Wimbledon probably saw my knickers!
