The All England Tennis Club Boss did sate the final would take place at the said as its done every year despite the fact that England who are now hosting the tennis event stand a chance of making the World Cup final.

According to respondents, with the two finals coinciding with one another, only 8 per cent of those watching the tennis state they are prepared to stick with the coverage should the match run over into the start of the World Cup final.

Centre Court was only a third full on Saturday when droves of fans left the arena to watch England's victory over Sweden.

Those who stuck around appeared more interested in following the action from Russian Federation via electronic devices instead of watching the tennis take place in front of them.

The All England Club CEO Richard Lewis is confident that everything will go well.

"I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on".

"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".

The All England Club was asked to rethink its 2 pm (6.30 pm IST) start time for Sunday's men's singles final as the football showdown Moscow will be kicking off at 4pm in the United Kingdom (8.30 pm IST).

Fans are being treated to a hectic day of tennis at SW19 on Manic Monday, with world number one Rafael Nadal and three-time champion Novak Djokovic also due to play.

England have progressed to their first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

There had been talk of the World Cup final being shown on the big screen on Henman Hill at Wimbledon but that has been ruled out.

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 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 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.
