Wimbledon Men's Final 2013: How did THEY get a ticket? Bradley Cooper and Gerard Butler among the celebrities spotted on Centre Court
Sunday 07 July 2013
Those magical Centre Court tickets were rather easier for some to procure than for others. Being Scottish helped, naturally: there was Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister. Multiple Olympic gold medalist Sir Chris Hoy had a seat, as did the star of ‘The 300’, actor Gerard Butler.

Roger Draper celebrated his fifth anniversary as chief executive of the Lawn Tennis Association this week but insisted yesterday that he should not be judged for another five years. While Britain's men, with the exception of Andy Murray, are less successful than when he took charge, Draper said it was too early to assess his reforms. "I've always said it takes 10 years to transform a sport," Draper said at the National Tennis Centre at Roehampton.

The most eagerly awaited television contest of the year for sporting personalities is decided by you, the people. And you have spoken. So last weekend Gavin Henson had to pack away his dancing clothes and cans of spray tan after being voted off Strictly Come Dancing (BBC1, most nights) in the semi-finals.
