Just cancel Wimbeldon for this year

Its getting ridiculous now with all the rain. The schedulers have stuffed up big style and players will have to play 2 matches a day or something. This tournament is stuck in the past, and has been shown up for what it really is - crap. The tournament is the most boring in the year (finally I agree with Davydenko), and it should just be cancelled for the year.

Re: Just cancel Wimbeldon for this year

Great thread.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Another flash of brilliance by MTF's version of Albert Einstein.

I'd rather wait those extra 5 seconds seeing those boobies bounce than watching some fatass kid burn away his bigmac meal.

Re: Just cancel Wimbeldon for this year

No

This is the one tournament that's bigger than the players themselves, French open is nothing without a Rafa nadal, Australian Open and US open are nothing without federer or sampras. Wimbledon is the one tournament regardless of players or not that makes or breaks stars. so if they have to dress white and stop playing because of the rain, so be it, they get to play tennis for a living, shut the fuck up go to your hotel room and wait for the rain to pass.

Alternate title of thread: This is where players I don't like do well. I can pretend to blame the weather (although it is atrocious every year, no one will notice).

Re: Just cancel Wimbeldon for this year

Yeah, I'm pissed as hell. Some 3rd round matches haven't even finished playing today (Tuesday), and they will have to resume on Wednesday! In the SECOND week of Wimbledon! That's such crap! All I'm saying is that they better not have Federer play his quarterfinals match on Wednesday until ALL the third and fourth round matches have been played!

And how are they going to do this? For instance, would Nadal have to play 3rd round on Wed, 4th round on Th, quarters on Fri, semis on Sat, and final on Sun, if he were to get that far? That's not fair on the player's body at all. God, Wimbledon officials are d*mn selfish!

Cancel it?? But the fact they did not play on Sunday is completly ridiculous, but Wimbledon is special, so it must be different.
