The first day of the tournament has seen people queue for on-the-day premium tickets up to 48 hours before the gates open.
Around 42,000 people are expected to attend each day over the next few weeks as it returns to full capacity for the first time since COVID-19.
But fan @shroomtwo said the system is the "worst thing about Wimbledon" and the way other grand slams organise ticket sales is "so much better".
TENNIS fans have slammed Wimbledon for its "backward" and "embarrassing" ticket system, with some vowing to "never" return again.
Wimbledon is back and celebrates an historic year, the 100th anniversary of Centre Court in its current home, which will see a battle between the new guard and old on the grasscourt
Top men's seed Novak Djokovic - who won his opener - and calendar slam-chasing Rafa Nadal face stiff competition from the likes of Matteo Berrettini, Carlos Alcaraz, Caspar Ruud and Felix Auger-Aliassime.
The women's game is headed up by world no1 Iga Swiatek, though the likes of Coco Gauff and British hope Emma Raducanu, who emerged victorious on day one, will fancy their chances - depending on injuries. Serena Williams is back after a year out of the game.
Wimbledon will have a different feel to it this year. It won't have ranking points attached to it because of the organizers' ban of Russian and Belarusian players. The ATP stepped in after the ban and ruled that points would not be awarded for the oldest tournament in tennis. That will give the event an exhibition vibe.
With that being said, the stakes are still very real. Serena Williams is playing for her 24th Grand Slam tournament title, which would tie Margaret Court for the most all time. She will be playing 24-year-old Harmony Tan in the first round.
On the men's side, Novak Djokovic is seeking his fourth straight Wimbledon title. The men's record for Grand Slam titles is Rafael Nadal's 22. Djokovic is currently at 20.
For the first time, play has been scheduled for all 14 days, with no traditional day of rest. Here's how you can watch it all.
Follow all the action as Wimbledon gets underway with Novak Djokovic, Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray all in action on day one.
It was at Wimbledon last year that Djokovic equalled Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal’s men’s grand slam record of 20 titles with a victory over Matteo Berrettini, however, the Serbian has since fallen two behind the Spaniard. The No 1 seed at this year’s tournament due to the ban on Russian players, leaving Daniil Medvedev unable to compete, Djokovic opened his title defence with a four-set win over Soonwoo Kwon
Elsewhere, Great Britain’s Jodie Burrage came to the aid of a ballboy who was taken ill during her first-round defeat to Lesia Tsurenko. The youngster looked unsteady on his feet early in the second set of her 6-2 6-3 loss before he was later treated by paramedics and left in a wheelchair.
Emma Raducanu wins Wimbledon opener to reach second round
British number one Emma Raducanu says she "cherished every moment" in a winning start to her first Wimbledon as a Grand Slam champion.
The 19-year-old overcame a nervy start on her Centre Court debut to beat Alison van Uytvanck 6-4 6-4.
Backed by an enthusiastic home crowd, the US Open champion showed no sign of the side injury that hurt her build-up.
"I really felt like today I made that court my own and really took it in," she said.
Raducanu burst onto the scene a year ago with a run to the Wimbledon fourth round, having come into the tournament ranked 338th in the world.
This time she arrived as the 10th seed and Grand Slam champion - and she was greeted as such by a passionate crowd that played its part in getting her through.
"I'm extremely pleased to have come through that match and looking forward to hopefully playing in front of you guys again," she said in her on-court interview.
"I've been feeling it (crowd support) ever since I stepped on to the practice courts, people behind me going, 'Emma, you've got this'. And I'm like, 'Yeah, I've got this'.
"I'm just so happy to stay another day."
Wimbledon 2022: Murray and Raducanu through to second round – as it happened
We’ll bring our live Wimbledon coverage to a close for today. It was a fine first day of action and especially for the big home hopes - Emma Raducanu shone on her Centre Court debut before Andy Murray dropped a set but then progressed with relatively little fuss. I say it was a fine first day – there was of course a massive cloudburst and a fairly long rain delay earlier on – but it wouldn’t be Wimbledon without rain, would it? Thanks for reading and we’ll see you tomorrow for more.

Murray allays injury concerns in encouraging performance
Burrage raced over to the fridge for water and got an energy gel from her bag when he was struggling early in the second set, later handing him sweets while he sat on a chair.
The 23-year-old watched over him, talking to him for several minutes before medical assistance arrived.
"I just racted how I think anyone would," she told a news conference.
"He was not in a good spot. I just tried to help him out as much as possible."
The boy was helped off court 18, walking shakily, and the All England Club later said "he's fine".
Burrage said the youngster had told her he was feeling "really faint".
"He couldn't actually really talk. It was quite distressing to see," she said.
"I've fainted a few times. I actually had a panic attack once in juniors here, so I've been where he is. I kind of know a little bit how he was feeling. So I just tried to help as much as I could. Hopefully I did."
She said she had tried to give him an energy gel but that they "are not the nicest thing to have".
"I was just like, 'This kid needs sugar'. Someone just shouted on the side, 'Got some sweets here if you want'."
The match had only just started again after play had been suspended for more than an hour because of rain at 5-2 to Lesia Tsurenko in the first set.
The Ukrainian, who stood at the net keeping warm during the incident, eventually won 6-2 6-3 to go through to the second round.

Meanwhile, Twitter user @Tomtetom2 said: "The queue impresses me zero. it only shows that Wimbledon still has an outdated and backward ticketing system. to be honest it's just really embarrassing in 2022 and no reason to celebrate."
Wimbledon 2022 LIVE: Cameron Norrie vs Pablo Andujar latest score, updates as British number one eases through
This wasn’t vintage Emma Raducanu for her first time gracing Centre Court but, in the end, it didn’t quite need to be.
Her rhythm was lacking – unsurprising having not played for nearly three weeks – and her unforced error count was too high at 18. Plus, she only converted four of 12 break-point chances, two of which came courtesy of double faults from her opponent.
But crucially she mustered all the necessary grit and determination to edge out Alison van Uytvanck. And positively there seemed little sign of the side strain which has kept her off court since the Nottingham Open earlier this month.
There have been infinitely more memorable matches in Raducanu’s brief career to date but the 19-year-old won’t be unduly concerned having beaten a dangerous first-round opponent 6-4, 6-4 to seal her spot in the second round.
