Re: Monday OP

I hope so too!!!!

And.... it just started raining out. There's one system of showers moving through and hopefully it's done by early afternoon, then hopefully it's clear sailing for the rest of the week.

Re: Monday OP

Looks like the rain might finally be moving through....

Can they "dry" the clay courts somehow? How soon after it stops raining can you play on clay? They've gotta be soaked though, after 2 and a half days of straight rain pretty much.

You can usually play right away. In fact, some tournaments let the players play through the rain since the wetness isn't dangerous on the surface, as long as it's not too big of a rain.

Re: Monday OP

According to anything I have, the match hasn't started yet. It's not raining here (about a half hour away from the club), but yeah.... I'm not going over there today so I can't be of help.

If the court is really wet, what can they do to a clay court to make it playable? The rain stopped like, 2-3 hours ago or so.

Well it's been pouring for over two days.... not just a little rain lol

Neely, check out http://www.livescore.com/tennis.dll?page=home they're not the best but better than nothing. They show the matches haven't started yet but who really knows. It doesn't look like the tourney site (which sucks bigtime) will have anything at all useful Though this is the only day I have to worry about it at least hehe

Nope, this tournament site really really sucks.

Re: Monday OP

okidokie I was just making sure

I still can't find any info on scores... weirdddddddddd. I can't see why it'd be continually delated unless the court is just too muddy to safely play on?

I'm not sure, but I think they can pull out those floor drier quasi-vacuum shaped thingies? lol. I mean like they did for the US Open last year, which they showed constantly on TV.

Re: Monday OP

oh ok, I just wasn't sure if those can be used on clay as well. I mean, it's Houston, it rains here, A LOT. I'm sure they have something in place. I'm just surprised they're starting an hour late. Either that or livescore.com just isn't updating, which means this is gonna be one frustrating tournament to follow lol
