Wimbledon men’s final won’t move if England make the World Cup final

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

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

Wimbledon fans on Centre Court will be allowed to use phones and tablets to follow the World Cup final, the head of the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) has said.

South Africa's Kevin Anderson in action during the fourth round match against France's Gael Monfils.

'It is not unheard of for there to be a ripple of applause or a shout when something special happens in a football tournament, ' he said.

But after Centre Court was left two-thirds empty during England's quarter-final match against Sweden last week, the ban has been negotiated and lifted.

When asked if he was anxious about Sunday's World Cup final in Russian Federation clashing with the Wimbledon men's singles final, Roger Federer couldn't help but laugh.

I was out and about around the grounds and you could tell when England had scored and it was lovely, it was wonderful.

"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", said Wimbledon chief executive Richard Lewis. 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.

Federer, 36, could be playing for a ninth All England Club title on Sunday at the same time as England contest the final of the world's most widely viewed sporting event.

Strict rules that ban electronic devices from being switched on so as not to distract tennis players have been waived in the possibility Gareth Southgate's Three Lions squad will be in the final next week - a historic match that could clash with the men's Wimbledon final.

England go up against talented opponents in Croatia who stand as thriving dark horses in a very competitive World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 2018 Wimbledon tournament began Monday, July 2, at the All England Club and will take place daily over the following two weeks with an off day July 8. "They'll hear every point, wow, love-15, 15-30", he said.
