Wimbledon officials play down flu fears

Wimbledon officials are playing down swine flu fears after four ball boys and girls were asked to stay home with flu symptoms.
Ian Ritchie, the chief executive of the All England Club, issued a statement Monday about the flu cases and asked all visitors and personnel to stay away from the championships if they develop any symptoms.
All England Club spokesman Henry O'Grady said there were no indications that any of the four staffers had swine flu. He said they were asked to stay home as a "precautionary measure" and would not be tested for the disease.
