Wimbledon could detract from cup final, jokes Roger Federer

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

England play Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals on Wednesday after the victor of France and Belgium has been decided Tuesday.

However, he did offer a way that fans would be able to watch the game if they wanted to; albeit not quite with the same communal atmosphere as a big screen showing.

Fans will, however, be able to follow the action in Russian Federation on their phones and tablets using the tournament's wifi signal.

The men's singles final will start at 2 pm (1300 GMT) with the big football final kicking off two hours later, so it is likely there will be a clash.

Mobile phones and other devices can be used by the crowd, giving spectators the option of watching the World Cup final as well.

He said: "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".

Lewis also insisted that there were no plans to show either Wednesday´s semi-final or Sunday´s final at the World Cup on Wimbledon´s giant TV screen attached to one of the sides of Court One. The intent of the rule was to prevent spectators from talking on their phones or receiving calls during matches.

Viewing figures for England matches in the United Kingdom have soared, with the nation hopeful of a first tournament victory since 1966.

The clash of events could further see a reduction of spectators at Wimbledon.

Should England reach the final, tennis fans will be even more torn-the World Cup final is scheduled for the middle of the Wimbledon men's singles final. [Football fans] will hear every point, 'Wow, 0-15, 15-30.' The players are going to look up to the...

England on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time) face Croatia for a place in the World Cup final at the same time Wimbledon's men's quarter-finals are due to take place.
