The grounds at Wimbledon were sparsely populated as England attempted to reach their first World Cup final since 1966.
Football fever hasn't bristled the grass courts at Wimbledon despite England reaching the semi-finals of the Fifa World Cup for the first time since 1990.
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).
Yorkshire County Cricket Club has rearranged its Vitality Blast T20 fixture against Derbyshire, which was scheduled to clash with England's semifinal match against Croatia. 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. "We had superb tennis going on and we were benefiting from modern technology where people were able to follow the football, enjoy it, without disturbing other people", said Lewis.
And though the tennis starts at 2pm, and the football kicks off at 4pm United Kingdom time, there is the possibility that the tennis could spill over into football time if it goes the distance, something that's certainly possible with Roger Federer still on course to possibly meet Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic in the final.
He also told the BBC that Wimbledon's big TV screen on "Henman Hill" was reserved for tennis.
"What will happen next Sunday is Centre Court will be packed for the men's final and I'm sure people will be able to follow the World Cup final", Lewis told reporters on Monday. [Football fans] will hear every point, 'Wow, 0-15, 15-30.' The players are going to look up to the...
"Our attitude is that if people aren't affecting other people's enjoyment of the tennis, if they have it on silent or are listening on an earphone, then that is fine", Lewis said, according to The (London) Guardian.
"We have a very strong public wi-fi signal and it worked brilliantly on Saturday", he said.
"I have met Gareth Southgate, he´s a great guy. I have known Eric since he was a teenager". The same policy will be extended to the final on Sunday.
"I think it would be huge if we win". I thought that went really well.
