Wimbledon wont budge on World Cup final clash, happy with phone viewing

Tomorrow's match kicks offsat 7pm but Sunday's World Cup final starts at 4pm, two hours before the men's Wimbledon final.

Federer, who cruised through to the quarter-final of the men's competition on Monday, said he was not anxious about the football disrupting Sunday's final.

This clash is unfortunate for those attending the tennis tournament, with Wimbledon 2018 standing firm on its policy of "tennis only" screening and being a football-free zone, even if England are playing.

There is the possibility that England will be involved in the final in Russian Federation and that could possibly have a significant impact on the viewing figures for the Wimbledon finale.

Lewis also insisted that there were no plans to show either Wednesday´s semi-final or Sunday´s final at the World Cup on Wimbledon´s giant TV screen attached to one of the sides of Court One.

The final will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

"Saturday [when England played in the quarter final] was a fantastic day at the championships".

Viewing figures for England matches in the United Kingdom have soared, with the nation hopeful of a first tournament victory since 1966.

The All England Club CEO Richard Lewis is confident that everything will go well.

The World Cup final in Russian Federation is due to kick off on July 15 two hours after the traditional 2 p.m. start of the men's Wimbledon final-meaning a very likely overlap.

Lewis added that tennis fans are welcome to follow the football final online with their preferred devices, but they must do so in a respectable manner.

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

"We are a sold-out event and there's massive interest", he said. We didn't receive a single complaint from anyone who was here who felt their enjoyment of the tennis was interrupted and I'm sure it'll be the same next Sunday.

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

"They'll hear every point: 'Wow, love-15, 15-30'".

England on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time) face Croatia for a place in the World Cup final at the same time Wimbledon's men's quarter-finals are due to take place.
