Wimbledon: 50 faint in heat as temperatures reach 30C
Temperatures are rising at Wimbledon not just due to the weather but the play too with the prospect of an all Williams womens final a possibility and Britain's own Andrew Murray in scorching form as he gets ready to play Nadal in the quarter final.
A total of 50 people fainted at SW19 because of the heat and not drinking enough water and were treated by St John's Ambulance. None required hospital treatment.
Spokesman Mike Gibbons said: "People don't like to leave the tennis when a good match is going on, but they should make sure they've got enough water to drink.
"Both young and old were affected and we helped people in difficulties on a number of different courts - there wasn't one particularly bad sun trap."
