The former champion and world number one had to bow out of Wimbledon due to an ongoing hip injury.

An ever bigger clash awaits if England reach their first final since winning the World Cup in 1966 because the men's Wimbledon final would likely overlap with the decider in Moscow.

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.

"It is purely our decision to stay at 2 p.m".

Defending champion Roger Federer, who has his sights set on Sunday's final, joked that it was the World Cup organisers who should be anxious about the two sporting events overlapping.

Switzerland´s Roger Federer returns to France´s Adrian Mannarino in their men´s singles fourth round match at Wimbledon, July 9, 2018.

Asked yesterday if he had concerns about noise from the Centre Court crowd, Federer light-heartedly replied: "I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on".

England's rise through the World Cup tournament has dispelled decades of frustration at past dismal performances.

"That's how important Wimbledon is to me and to us over here".

Fans in Wimbledon's Centre Court turning around to watch England's World Cup quarter-final against Sweden from TV.

There were several people keeping up with action on their phones, with one woman kitted out in England attire watching on a bench while waiting for Martina Navratilova to play her women's invitational doubles match on Court Three. The authorities at the tennis tournament have said that it will be OK to activate your phone and watch the football while in the grounds of Wimbledon, as long as you can manage to not stand up and go "F*CKING SQUARE IT DELLE JESUS CHRIST MAN ON" while someone's serving at 30-40 down.

"We had superb tennis going on and we were benefiting from modern technology where people were able to follow the football and enjoy it, without disturbing other people", he told the paper. Shouldn't really happen, but thankfully they do for me.

He added: "People get Wimbledon and we get the balance right".

Lewis has become exasperated by stories that the AEC has been indifferent to the national wave of affection which has engulfed Southgate's football team.

"We've installed public WiFi, very strong WiFi signal".

Should England make the final on Sunday, it´s possible that the men´s final may not even be over - especially if Federer and Rafael Nadal are involved. "We are a country of four million people", said the 22-year-old.
