Always go on the first Tuesday or weds (weather depending) as you get maximum value on the outside courts. Prior to the Mahut/Isner tie last year (was on that court that day for Watson but not for the biggie) I was at the previous longest match Witsken v Holmes in '89. Only a handful of us watching two unknowns at about 8 in the evening and they were going at it in a style that made it difficult to leave. Amazingly (to me), although I knew Holmes qualified from the tie I didn't know until the record was broken that it had in fact, been the longest match. Witsken later beat Connors at the US Open but died young of cancer, with about 4 young kids. tragic
Anyway, too much information, going tomorrow. In the past i've always got there for @5.30am and always got in fine. May relax to 6.30am although at 5.30am I always get a parking spot within 15 mins walk too. Decisions. Certainly, if you aren't fussed about show courts and are looking more for competition, you certainly don't need to queue overnight. If this year is the same format as previous ones that is.

I usually go late in the first week on the day the big Brit of the time isn't playing. Walk up or cycle from Collers wood, start queuing about 4am and usually get court 2, sometimes court 1.

What's the deal with queuing for ground passes? How early does one need to be there (I assume the massive overnight queues are for people wanting show court tickets)?

Furthermore, how likely is it to get re-sale show court tickets at 5/6pm?

Advice from those with previous experiences greatly received. Thanks in advance.
Don't bother. Wimbledon is not about tennis for the vast majority who go there. The same as Henley and Ascot etc. They are social events - look at most of the audience who have never been to another tennis event in their life. You are a true fan and you don't have to go to Wimbledon and rub shoulders with all those psueds/students/middle aged ladies/prawn sandwich eaters etc to demonstrate that. Oh and by the way - cheer up Murray you miserable sod.

I wanted to go and get a ground pass for today. In the past I've gone along and only queued for a short time but that was at 5pm. Anyone know how long is the queue for ground passes at about 1pm? Cheers

If you go at 1pm it will just be one in one out so will probably be quite a long wait.

I should be going on Monday now, hopefully will see some decent 4th round matches on outer courts.

Today fell through - though still heading up for the evening (could work out well, judging by the weather currently).

As for the tennis, ridiculous that AM isn't on Centre, verging on disrespectful in my view. Furthermore, it's so typically English for the schedulers to want to be seen to be 'fair'. We crave a British champion - they should exploit every advantage they can; putting AM on Centre would guarantee his match finishes today.

Why should the local be favoured? He isn't playing for GB. He's playing for himself.

Rain should stop in the next 15-20 mins so hopefully we'll some play just after 4pm. AM could be on in time for use 9-5ers to get home and settle into a cup of tea.

Covers went off just after 3:30, got to see Misaki Doi v Bethany Mattek-Sands (who was not a happy bunny at all after the match) and Gael Monfils v Grega Zimlja (moved from Court 3 to 14 - result) which was a very good match.

Great day out

How much tennis would be available to watch and how decent would just a ground pass be for Monday?

Ground pass was £20 yesterday, assume it will be the same. Probably a few matches on the outer courts obviously less than this week though.
