The men's final is scheduled to take place at 2pm on Sunday while the World Cup final starts two hours later at 4pm.
The All England Club was asked to rethink its 2 pm (6.30 pm IST) start time for Sunday's men's singles final as the football showdown Moscow will be kicking off at 4pm in the United Kingdom (8.30 pm IST).
Those who stuck around appeared more interested in following the action from Russian Federation via electronic devices instead of watching the tennis take place in front of them.
When asked if he thought people watching the World Cup final on their devices simultaneously would detract from the atmosphere, Federer added: "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".
Lewis also insisted that there were no plans to show either Wednesday´s semi-final or Sunday´s final at the World Cup on Wimbledon´s giant TV screen attached to one of the sides of Court One.
Wimbledon rules state phones, tablets and radios must be switched off "in and around the courts in play".
"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", said Wimbledon chief executive Richard Lewis.
According to GlobalWebIndex, just under a fifth of Sports Fans say they use social media to watch or follow sports events.
'It is not unheard of for there to be a ripple of applause or a shout when something special happens in a football tournament, ' he said.
Mr Lewis, who described it as "one of the special days at the Championships", said: "We had superb tennis going on and we were benefiting from modern technology where people were able to follow the football and enjoy it, without disturbing other people".
There had been talk of the World Cup final being shown on the big screen on Henman Hill at Wimbledon but that has been ruled out.
"You can tell when England scored and it was wonderful but we didn´t receive any complaints that the enjoyment of tennis had been spoiled".
"They'll hear every point: 'Wow, love-15, 15-30'".
"The (football) players are going to look up in the crowd and not understand what's going on at Wimbledon".
