1.  You can save a bunch of money – As the Wimbledon tournament approaches, ticket prices are only going to go up, and depending on who reaches the final, such seats can become astronomically expensive if you wait until the last minute.  Just look at what tickets were selling for in the 2012 final between Andy Murray and Roger Federer!

3.  Avoid the brutal ticket lines – There’s no worse place to be at Wimbledon than stuck in one of their infamous ticket lines.  Your trip is only going to last a finite amount of time, so why would you spend it standing in line?  Get your tickets early and use your downtime to go sightseeing instead!

4.  Peace of mind – What’s even worse about the ticket lines at Wimbledon is that there is no guarantee of getting in!  You’re standing there stressing out over whether you’ll actually get to see some tennis and wondering why you didn’t just buy tickets earlier!
