The current Wimbledon edition will stay in the history due to the coinciding of the men's singles final, that will start on Sunday at 2:00 PM, with the World Cup final, that takes place at 4:00 PM UK time. England could play the final as they have reached the semi-finals. The All England Club CEO Richard Lewis is confident that everything will go well.
'What will happen next Sunday is Centre Court will be packed for the men's singles final and I'm sure people will be able to follow the World Cup final,' Lewis told Independent. 'It's not unheard of for there to be a ripple of applause or a shout when something special happens in a football tournament, and I'm sure everybody will understand if it does. It didn't happen on Saturday particularly, it didn't disturb people. I was out and about around the grounds and you could tell when England had scored and it was lovely, it was wonderful. We didn't receive one 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. The Wi-Fi worked brilliantly, that's an indication we are supporting it, we're not turning the strength of the signal down.'
Recalling what happened last weekend with England playing at the same time when matches were being played at Wimbledon, Lewis added: 'Saturday was a fantastic day at the championships, one of the best days I can remember. We had superb tennis going on and we were benefiting from modern technology where people were able to follow the football, enjoy it, without disturbing other people. I thought that went really well. 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. Hopefully, England will get through to the final and it will be one of the very special days at Wimbledon.'
