Wimbledon could detract from cup final, jokes Roger Federer

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

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.

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.

Yorkshire County Cricket Club has rearranged its Vitality Blast T20 fixture against Derbyshire, which was scheduled to clash with England's semifinal match against Croatia. 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.

Said Lewis: "We want people to be able to enjoy in this modern era the fact that this is a tennis event but that there is something else very special going on".

"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", added Lewis.

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.

Nearly 11 years ago, Croatia beat England in a Euro 2008 qualifier, one that saw England miss out on the continental tournament. He hopes England will be more suited to their style of play, but added that recovering from two extended games will be hard .

Lewis said the tournament had learnt its lesson after showing the 1996 European Championship semi-final between England and Germany, which was decided on penalties, on the big screen.

With a smile on his face, he told a post-match press conference: "I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on". [Football fans] will hear every point, 'Wow, 0-15, 15-30.' The players are going to look up to the...

Lewis is quoted in the Guardian saying: "People get Wimbledon, and we get the balance right".

"We've installed public WiFi, very strong WiFi signal". Jeremy Dier (the father of England star Eric Dier) is a member of the club.

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.

Meanwhile, Croatia´s Donna Vekic, who was knocked out of Wimbledon by Julia Goerges of Germany in the fourth round on Monday, said she will be sending "good vibes" to her country´s football team in Russian Federation. "And I thought that went really well".
