    Just imagine if there were 3 grass court masters. Does anybody else think Federer would be on about 40 masters titles.

    Yeah probably. Federer is so unlucky that there are no masters on his best surface. He could have topped Nadal's 81 match winning streak on clay on grass. Hopefully there will a grass masters soon now that the grass court is extended by 1 week.

    Indeed, apparently Hamburg and Gstaad have expressed interest in transitioning to grass as well as the confirmed Stuttgart.

    Personally what i'd like to see is Wimbledon pushed back to the final 2 full weeks of July adding 3 weeks to the current calender. This would allow a number of the clay and hard events during July to become grass events. We'd chuck in 2 500 events for one week and make the last week of June a Masters event. This would reasonably allow players to go after 4000 points on grass (Wimbledon, Masters, 500, 2 smalls).

    He would have more than Nadal for sure, and Murray would have more than 9 Masters 1000's as well. It is about time we have at least 2 Grass Masters 1000's and a 500.

    You're not going to find many rackets below 300g I don't think. I have two around 300 and that's considered light.

    Great match between Dimitrov and Harrison, very fun to watch.
    Murray played well today too - looked so comfortable out there on the grass.

    Everyday however Centre court is sold out for tomorrow. If you went now you may make court 1 and see one of the 2 .

    If you queue early tomorrow the best you will get is court 2 or a ground pass which means you can still watch the Centre court matches on the hill .

    To get centre court for the following day you need to be in the queue the day before around mid afternoon.

    EDIT: Everyday apart from final 2 days

    I don't know where you get your rackets, but the majority of the ones in sports direct are pretty light, below 300g.

    They sell the tickets on the same day the matches are played but so many people queue overnight for CC tickets it is more than available that's why you have to turn up the day before in the afternoon.

    So I have to queue tomorrow afternoon in line so I can buy tickets on Wednesday morning at 10:30pm ? Almost 24 hours in queue line ! But they do give the queue wristbands at around 7:30 am. I guess I will find out tomorrow how it is then. Thanks !

    You will have to camp overnight yes everyone wants to go to Wimbledon so people queue for days to get on the show courts.

    They will give you a queue card when you arrive with your number. At 6am they wake you and then around 9-9:30am they issue you a coloured wristband to designate which show court you are going in.

    If you leave your space in the queue you could potentially lose your spot in line and your place altogether.

    Any questions ask away been in the queue a few times !
