  • Spectators watch the TV screen on Henman Hill at Wimbledon

Should England make the final on Sunday, it's possible that the men's final may not be even over - especially if Federer and Rafael Nadal involved.

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

Strict rules that ban electronic devices from being switched on so as not to distract tennis players have been waived in the possibility Gareth Southgate's Three Lions squad will be in the final next week - a historic match that could clash with the men's Wimbledon final.

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.

"Saturday was a fantastic day at the championships".

Roger Federer suggested a clash between the World Cup final and the Wimbledon men's singles final may be more of a concern for those in Russian Federation rather than competitors at SW19.

There is the possibility that England will be involved in the final in Russian Federation and that could possibly have a significant impact on the viewing figures for the Wimbledon finale.

"We have said for a couple of years that the final will be played at 2pm, as it is every year", said All England Tennis Club boss Richard Lewis.

"I was out and about around the grounds and you could tell when England had scored". We are a sold-out event and there's massive interest.

"People followed the football on their devices thanks to modern technology without disturbing other spectators".

Wimbledon chiefs insisted again Monday that the men´s final will start at its traditional time despite clashing with a potential England World Cup triumph but will have no objection if the Centre Court crowd want to take sneak peeks of the action from Moscow on their phones. "There are absolutely no plans to change anything", he added.

"We didn't have one single complaint of anybody here feeling that the football interfered with their enjoyment of Wimbledon".

The concession will enable Wimbledon-going soccer fans to stream the remaining World Cup matches or check on their progress while watching matches, whether via headphones or silenced.
