Wimbledon Men's Final Not Moving If England Reach World Cup Showpiece

Wimbledon Men's Final Not Moving If England Reach World Cup Showpiece

Having said all of this, if England are 1-0 up at half-time, you can bet your life that if whoever is in charge of the big screen on Henman Hill doesn't change the channel, they'll be subject to a sustained verbal volley of a ferocity which John McEnroe could only dream of. "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".

If the team wins, it will play in the World Cup final on Sunday, which starts while Wimbledon's men's final is taking place.

Fans are being treated to a hectic day of tennis at SW19 on Manic Monday, with world number one Rafael Nadal and three-time champion Novak Djokovic also due to play.

That game was broadcast on the big screen at the Wimbledon grounds.

However Richard Lewis, chief executive of AELTC, indicated the conditions of entry would be relaxed as the matches go head-to-head, with use of electronic devices permitted if they do not cause disruption.

Mr Lewis, who described it as "one of the special days at the Championships", said: "We had superb tennis going on and we were benefiting from modern technology where people were able to follow the football and enjoy it, without disturbing other people".

Deschamps lives in present as France reach World Cup final
Belgium had last reached the final four 32 years ago, and had never beaten Les Bleus in their two previous World Cup meetings. Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said luck was against his side."It was a very tight game".

Those failures have rankled all the more for the nation's long footballing history, obsession with the game, and venerated world-class football league.

The Centre Court showpiece is now slated for 2 p.m. GMT on Sunday, meaning it would be highly likely to clash with the World Cup final, kicking off at 4 p.m.

The men's final is scheduled to take place at 2pm on Sunday while the World Cup final starts two hours later at 4pm. I'm sure it'll be the same on Wednesday, a huge amount of interest in the tennis of course because it's a tennis event but great interest in the football. "There are absolutely no plans to change anything".

Tennis superstar Roger Federer countered the football fever with a little irony.

The concession will enable Wimbledon-going soccer fans to stream the remaining World Cup matches or check on their progress while watching matches, whether via headphones or silenced.
