The All England Club's chief executive Richard Lewis is clearly a bit anxious about his precious mounds and seats and strawberry concession stands being deserted on Wednesday for the semi-final and potentially as dead as a suburban high street on Sunday should England's young and suddenly decent players make the final, so has yielded to modernity.
Those who stuck around seemed to be more interested in following the action in Russian Federation on their electronic devices than watching the tennis match taking place in front of them.
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.
Wimbledon organisers have confirmed to the BBC that Sunday's men's singles final will not be moved even if England do reach the Fifa World Cup final.
Some 44 per cent of United Kingdom said they won't be watching the Men's Final at all on the Sunday due to Andy Murray's absence from this year's competition.
'It is not unheard of for there to be a ripple of applause or a shout when something special happens in a football tournament, ' he said.
The men's final is scheduled to take place at 2pm on Sunday while the World Cup final starts two hours later at 4pm.
England's rise through the World Cup tournament has dispelled decades of frustration at past dismal performances.
Football hopes are running at their highest since 1996, when England played (and lost to) Germany in the semi-final of the European Cup. We are a sold-out event and there's massive interest.
"Saturday was a fantastic day at the championships.
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.
I was out and about around the grounds and you could tell when England had scored and it was lovely, it was wonderful.
"We didn't have one single complaint of anybody here feeling that the football interfered with their enjoyment of Wimbledon", he said.
