Federer, who cruised through to the quarter-final of the men's competition on Monday, said he was not anxious about the football disrupting Sunday's final.

England will reach the football showpiece if they beat Croatia in the semi-final on Wednesday.

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

With a smile on his face, he told a post-match press conference: "I'm more concerned the World Cup final will have issues because the Wimbledon final is going on". Richard Lewis, chief executive of the All England Club, yesterday said modern technology allowed spectators to watch both sports simultaneously without causing widespread disturbance.

The tennis final is scheduled for 14:00 BST on Sunday and the big football match kicks off two hours later.

"We are a sold-out event and there's massive interest", he said.

The 2018 Wimbledon tournament began Monday, July 2, at the All England Club and will take place daily over the following two weeks with an off day July 8.

However, Lewis said he would have no objection if numerous 15,000 fans inside Centre Court wanted to follow the football on their devices - as long as they did not disturb the players. 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. The rules of entry to the grounds of SW19 had previously stated that devices "must be switched off in and around the courts of play", although the rules appear to have been relaxed with England on the verge of reaching an historic final.

"Saturday [when England played in the quarter final] was a fantastic day at the championships".

Still, spectators will have to utilize their own resources to watch the match, as the club also declined to show the game on the big screen just outside of one of the stadiums. "They'll hear every point, Wow, Love-15, 15-30", the Swiss said with a smile.

"I was out and about around the grounds and you could tell when England had scored". The players [at the World Cup] are going to look up in the crowd and not understand what's going on at Wimbledon!
