    So through the public ballot, would you not get more than one ticket? Can you apply for more than one ticket and if you get the ticket, do you get all the tickets you request for?
    I'm about 90% sure you get a pair of tickets. You apply once and they assign you to a day and court (Centre or No. 1). If you can't make that day then it's just tough... they give it to someone else :rolleyes: You can't change day unfortunately!

    Woodbridge retires!

    Half of the best doubles pairing I have ever seen. One of the Woodies. For many years, I loved watching Woodbridge and Woodforde playing in the doubles matches and winning numerous titles. I'd like to say congratulations to Woodbridge for a brillaint future and good luck for the future.

    I went last year, and had tickets for court No.1 and No.2! The two biggest courts after Centre. It was really good because I just flitted between the two! I saw Justine Henin-Hardene play, Ferrero, Philippousis (sp?), Federer amongst others. I really enjoyed it - great day out! Got really sunburnt though. I pay £5 for a tennis ball keyring; it broke on the train back from London!! It's cool, you can always just pop in and watch the junior matches too - they seem to be really enclosed and claustrophobic as well! I saw Venus and Serena entering court No.2 and I brushed past Serena!! I later on, near Henman Hill, saw their father, Richard Williams wondering around so I chatted to him for a bit and got his photograph! Twas fun.

    What I like about Roddick is that he seems likeable and has a good sense of humour. Plus, he's a gutsy player.
    He's fit as well, which is always a bonus. :p: Nah, he does seem very funny. I want him to win, especially because of the American Express adverts! I think Federer will win though; tis almost inevitable.

    He was awesome, he was an awesome doubles player and also a very good singles player. Whoever he played with, he was always a threat.

    What a first set between Sharopova and Venus Williams, best set i've seen in the whole tournament. Cant believe Venus is playing so well!

    I'm glad to see woodward has changed things round. Delighted to see Donncha O'Callaghan starting, he never gets a fair deal when it comes to Irish selection. Ironic that on taking Byrne off we are left with three Irish line out jumpers.

    All those Sharpova commercials look funny now.

    I think Venus will win it all, now that she's back on her A game.

    i wonder what will now become of sharapova, will she still be able to cope with the pressure of her sponsers? or do you think after today's performance she may well be the next anna kournikova.

    I don't think she will get that bad. She's too much of a fighter for that, but she wont beat either of the Williams sisters again!

    i hope she does, after this season i think the william's' reign on womens tennis may be stopped in its tracks, even thier father doesnt believe they have that love for tennis anymore, which is vital for winning.

    Who do you think will win between Davenport and Mauresmo? Davenport is winning at the moment but in my opinion watching Davenport is sooo boring. Mauresmo is not really playing her best either

    Can someone answer my question? How come you don't see top single players playing doubles anymore? Like the William sisters do not play doubles anymore. Also how does Todd Woodbridge (double tennis players)be ranked compared to someone who only plays singles?
