Thousands of tennis fans make early Wimbledon getaway on England's big night

'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.

Many spectators opted to leave the grounds and watch the match at neighbouring pubs, leaving Angelique Kerber and Naomi Osaka to start off their third round match in front of thousands of empty green seats.

The second phase of a rescue operation has ended for the day, with more than half of the Thai soccer team rescued from the cave. Over the next three days, the boys were brought out in groups; four on the first day, four on the second and five on Tuesday.


The tennis final is scheduled for 14:00 BST on Sunday and the big football match kicks off two hours later.

Those who stuck around appeared more interested in following the action from Russian Federation via electronic devices instead of watching the tennis take place in front of them. Lewis said: "Our attitude is if people aren't affecting other people's enjoyment of the tennis, which they weren't, because they've got it on silent or whatever, or they are listening with an earphone, or whatever, that's fine".

"Saturday was a fantastic day at the championships".

Should England make the final on Sunday, it´s possible that the men´s final may not even be over - especially if Federer and Rafael Nadal are involved.

He added: "If you are not disturbing anybody and people aren't being disturbed, which they weren't this last Saturday and I'm sure they won't be on Wednesday and hopefully the same thing will apply on Sunday, then it's a different issue".

Defending champion Roger Federer, who is more than likely to be playing in Sunday´s final, joked that maybe the World Cup final should move to accommodate the Wimbledon title match.

In preparation for the game, Wimbledon bosses have wrapped a condition that bans phones and tablets so that tennis and football fans can stay on top of both sports at the same time, The Times reports.

Roger Federer saw the amusing side of a possible World Cup-Wimbledon final clash and was more concerned about what effect the tennis could have on the viewing ratings of the football. "They'll hear every point, Wow, Love-15, 15-30", the Swiss said with a smile.
