The All England Club was a happier - and busier - place on Sunday morning as 'the people' made it their own.
Fans rush to take their places on 'People's Sunday'
The Centre Court, which was half-empty for the start of Tim Henman's match on Friday, was filling up over an hour before Sunday's 1100 BST start time.
And the crowd was noticeably noisier than usual, with the arrival of a ball boy carrying the net provoking wild cheers and applause.
The first Mexican Wave of the day was officially timed at 1043 BST.
With 11,000 Cente Court and 10,000 Court One tickets issued on a first come, first serve basis, a large crowd was inevitable.
The mid-morning queue that normally stretches around 500m from the All England Club along Church Road, was at least trebled in length.
Australians were much in evidence, with an early morning game of "footy" taking place alongside the queue in the car park.
So, were our antipodean cousins keen to grab Centre Court tickets to watch Tim Henman?
"Couldn't care less mate," said Steve from Adelaide. "We're here for the Scud (Mark Philippoussis) and the beer."
WHERE IS EVERYONE?
Her power on court and colourful life history off it usually make Jennifer Capriati a favourite with the crowds.
So the American had to admit she was a bit stunned to find Court One nearly deserted at 1100 BST when she began her third round match with Nathalie Dechy.
"I was surprised it was a bit empty when I first went out there," she said.
Q: Where was everybody? A: Queueing to get in or flocking to Centre Court, so Capriati must wait at least another year to experience a 'People's Sunday'.
NO KANGAROO COURT
'People's Sunday' certainly gives The All England Club a chance to prove they enjoy a raucous atmosphere just as much as the fans who rarely get onto the show courts.
But as you'd expect, there are limits to how far they will go.
"I think there are things like large banners and claxons that won't
be allowed," said All England Club chief executive Chris Gorringe.
"But I won't say kangaroos, because I know you'll write it down."
Mission accomplished then.
