And when were they ever not able to finish the tournament because of the weather? Right, didn't happen. It might took til monday, a whopping 1 day delay, but Wimbledon is an outdoor tournament, and it should stay that way.

I kind of like the charm of the rain delay, it makes matches extra special, provides epic momentum shifts (Henman-Ivanisevic, Nadal-Federer 08), and it just isn't Wimbledon without this for me.

Obviously it sucks for the people in the stands, and that's why I fully understand why they've done it, but still... I'm not quite sure if it was the right decision.
