With a third week looming at Wimbledon, All England club officials have confirmed that tickets for Sunday will be valid until the championships finish - whenever that is.

"If you have a ticket for Sunday it will be valid for subsequent days. They are not part of the rain cancellation scheme," said a club spokesman.

If Monday play is required no decision over prices has been made but the club are trying to ensure that any unused tickets for the show courts are offered to the general public. The last time Monday play was needed, in 1992, 7,798 turned up creating a "people's day".

The record for a third Monday at Wimbledon was set in 1988 when 15,257 came in through the gates.
