"This is a great opportunity to watch Wimbledon on the big screen at a/perture," Winston-Salem Open director Bill Oakes said. "Seating will be limited, so I encourage tennis fans to arrive early and start enjoying the fun.  A number of downtown restaurants are open on Sunday mornings, and the match probably will last until early afternoon.   Watch some tennis, grab brunch, see our Fourth Street activities and come back inside a/perture to see the conclusion of what is likely to be a great Wimbledon match."
