With almost half (63 per cent) of consumers choosing to watch the World Cup final, brands looking to jump on the conversation taking place online will thrive by anticipating the second-screen commentary and analysis.

"I´m more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on", said the eight-time champion after seeing off France´s Adrian Mannarino in straight sets on Monday.

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.

Lewis added that tennis fans are welcome to follow the football final online with their preferred devices, but they must do so in a respectable manner.

France booked a placed in the final on Tuesday after pipping Belgium 1-0 in the semi-final clash.

According to the BBC (and even commentators during the matches yesterday), the Wimbledon committee say that the gentlemen's singles final will commence at 2pm, as it does every year, regardless of the possibility that England may be in the World Cup final which starts next Sunday at 4pm.

Lewis added 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. And then the players will be looking up in the crowd because they don't understand what is going on at Wimbledon.
