My wife and I are going to Spain in June, but we've built in a quick stay in London with the sole purpose of going to Wimbledon. The day we want to attend is Fri, June 27. I applied for the lottery in the super off-chance of getting the exact day we want but no dice. I've considered buying debenture resale tickets but I'm seeing 1200GBP per ticket - do those usually go down closer to the event? I figure for the 3rd round Friday, it's a lesser day in terms of attendance popularity.
I've read that there are online sales in the days leading up for 3rd court and Centre Court tickets. If I hold off and try to nab those and fail, would it still be possible to buy debenture tickets, keeping in mind that we will be foreigners staying in a hotel at this point? If the weather forecast is clear, we'll probably just go early in the morning and hope to get a Court 1 or 2 tickets, but since we're going all-in for a single day, I worry that we need to have Centre Court in case of rain. I know these are some nebulous questions - any general advice?
