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

Some 44 per cent of United Kingdom said they won't be watching the Men's Final at all on the Sunday due to Andy Murray's absence from this year's competition.

France will face Belgium in the first semifinal Tuesday at 7 p.m. locally; England take on Croatia in the other semifinal Wednesday at 7 p.m.

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.

The final will be played at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

Wimbledon is the oldest of the tennis majors and takes place at the prestigious All England Club every summer - usually for a two week period from late June to early July.

The All England Club has come under increasing pressure to rethink its 2pm (1300GMT) start time for Sunday´s men´s singles final with the football showpiece in Moscow kicking off at 4pm in the United Kingdom (1500GMT).

However Richard Lewis, chief executive of AELTC, indicated the conditions of entry would be relaxed as the matches go head-to-head, with use of electronic devices permitted if they do not cause disruption.

But Wimbledon organizers are keeping a stiff upper lip, refusing to show any football on the tournament's big screen, in an attempt to reign in any ungentlemanly behavior.

He continued: "We are a sold-out event and there's massive interest".

It might be a little embarrassing to see a tennis crowd staring comatose at phones, but apparently it's time for the tennis world to admit other sports exists, with Lewis adding: "It's not unheard of for there to be a ripple of applause or a shout when something happens in the football tournament and I am sure everybody will understand if it does". 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.

That game was broadcast on the big screen at the Wimbledon grounds.

"Saturday was one of the most special days I can remember at the championships".

"I was out and about around the grounds and you could tell when England had scored.it was wonderful".
