"I gather it wasn't very successful because it did interrupt people's enjoyment of the tennis and what we did last Saturday actually did work very well", Lewis said of Wimbledon's last showing of an England game.
Moreover, Lewis said the All England Club would not erect TV screens on the grounds so ticket holders could watch the World Cup, nor will they use the existing oversize screen on Henman Hill behind Court No. 1 for any goal other than tennis.
Speaking to a group of reporters Monday morning, Richard Lewis, the club's chief executive, indicated that the prohibition would not be strictly enforced given interest in the World Cup - provided the use of the devices didn't interfere with others. On the same day the men's quarter-finals will be held in SW19.
The World Cup showpiece will take place on Sunday at 18:00 (local time), which is 16:00 BST, meaning it is likely to kick off during the men's grass-court final, which eight-time champion Federer is a heavy favourite to be a part of.
We had superb tennis going on and we were benefiting from modern technology where people were able to follow the football, enjoy it, without disturbing other people.
"I was out and about around the grounds and you could tell when England had scored.it was wonderful".
He also told BBC Sport that Wimbledon's big TV screen on "Henman Hill" was reserved for tennis.
The Wimbledon men's singles final will not be moved even if England reach the World Cup final on the same afternoon.
"Hopefully England will get through to the final and it will be one of the very special days at Wimbledon".
"Well, it's going to happen anyway, if I'm going in the final or not, the Wimbledon final will take place, and so will the World Cup final", Federer said in a seemingly tongue-in-cheek response. "They'll hear every point, Wow, Love-15, 15-30", the Swiss said with a smile.
