Watch Andy Murray In Wimbledon Final in 3D

Festival Square tennis

So Andy Murray made a little bit of tennis history with his (6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5) victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga yesterday. Murray became the first Brit to make the Wimbledon's men's singles final since Bunny Austin in 1938 (for the women we don't have to go so far back as Virginia Wade took the women's singles title in 1977).

Tomorrow, we'll find out if Murray can go the whole way with a win in the final against Roger Federer, joining Fred Perry, who was the last Brit to win the Wimbledon men's singles with his three-in-a-row in 1934, 1935, and 1936.

This Sunday, Murray mania reaches its climax at 2pm, with the game broadcasting from every nook and cranny of the city.

Last blog, I highlighted fair weather, outdoor venue Festival Square (pictured above with its big screen) as a possible venue for watching the game.

Another one - depending on where you live - is the cinema: the Vue Omni has listed a 240 minute slot for Wimbledon: Men's Final in 3D ("to be confirmed").

The Odeon chain of cinemas is also showing the final in 3D in select cinemas across the country.

Unfortunately, it looks like Dunfermline Odeon is the nearest cinema for Edinburghers.

If you are a 3D tennis fanatic outside the Scottish capital you might be more lucky.

The full list of Odeons screening Wimbledon is:

  • Bath
  • Belfast
  • Braehead
  • Brighton
  • Cardiff
  • Colchester
  • Covent Garden
  • Dunfermline
  • Kingston
  • Manchester (Printworks)
  • Newcastle East
  • Norwich
  • Sheffield
  • Southampton
  • Swiss Cottage
  • Wimbledon

Wishing Andy Murray the Best of British today. I am going to drink tea from my lucky Alison Gardiner Union Jack mug all day!
