As the curtain came down on Wimbledon this year, I was one of the fans who were left disappointed when Andy Murray faltered at the semi-finals.

He has been on top form this year, especially after winning the Queens. Actually, his success might have worked against him because so much was expected of him.

England was looking forward to a Brit to raise that coveted trophy that has eluded British players for more than seven decades. Perhaps carrying the hopes of the nation weighed him down too much, upsetting his rhythm. He is such wonderful player and I can only say well done. In the end, Roger Federer beat Andy Roddick and by so doing he entered the annals of history as the only person to win 15 masters titles since the game was invented.

The Williams sisters retained both senior female titles and the doubles title. Serena Williams wrested the singles title from six-time Wimbledon champion elder sister Venus Williams, who won it last year in an epic final that pitted the two sisters against each other.

Many people think that watching a match live at Wimbledon is very expensive. This is not entirely true. I say entirely because there are some sections of the court whose tickets are few and exclusive.

A full day ticket for a show court is usually no more than 35-40 GPB, quite a bargain considering you could see up to three premier matches and have access to the full grounds. Wimbledon is one of the few major world events that still allow you to buy premium tickets on the day of play.

For many years, it has been a Wimbledon tradition for fans from all over the UK and abroad to camp overnight around the courts so that they can get a good place in the queue the next day.

There is a huge Wimbledon fan base that enjoys camping every year because it is part of a tradition. They love the experience and they are always looking forward to the next championship. Each day, approximately 500 tickets for Centre Court, court 1 and 2 are reserved for sale at the grounds. About 6000 basic grounds tickets are also available each day, including the Court 2 standing area and seating on Courts 3 to 19. Depending on who you want to see and cheer. Serious fans will definitely be spoilt for choice.

If you have not heard this before, you are probably wondering why on earth people queue overnight. Apart from the thrill of camping out and being part of the Wimbledon spectacle, it makes it easier for you to get the much sought after Queue Cards which qualify you for a real ticket the next day. Officials come in the morning and hand out Queue Cards strictly to those in the queue.

Once you get your Queue Card, you will be given a special wristband to confirm that you legitimately queued and so it guarantees you a ticket. Once you have both the Queue Card and the wristband, you will then patiently move along the line snaking around the park towards the turnstiles where you will pay for one of the seats available.

Next year I would probably book an undercover hotel. This is an innovative way of getting a fantastically cheap deal on a hotel at this time of the year in this part of London. Undercover hotels are offered at a special rate and are guaranteed to be either 3-star or 4-star hotel, which are revealed once you have booked.

Prices start from unbeatable price of just 43 pounds for room-only at Heathrow airport, which is only a stone' throw away from Wimbledon.
