WIMBLEDON MAY be staged during the first two weeks of July in future to avoid rainy weather and lengthen the grasscourt season.

Scheduling conflicts mean the championship cannot be moved in the next two years, but it could happen by 2002. Chris Gorringe, chief executive of the All England Club, is understood to be in favour of the move, which would take advantage of the generally drier weather in the first half of July.
