Look, Even Jon Wertheim Agrees That Wimbledon Officials Are Making A Big Mistake!

When does one lost day of play lead to "a couple of extra five-set matches in the final week?" By the way, less than one day of missed play "wreaks havoc on the schedule?" Surely it takes two or three days of rain to do that, like on the occasions when play was allowed on the middle Sunday. Perhaps the customs officials should have confiscated your hyperbole at Heathrow.
-- Joel Haywood, Macon, Ga.

Jon Wertheim: Those custom officials have bigger concerns right now. But I'm telling you, Clive and Byron and Simon and the rest of the boys in Club Stuffy are making a big mistake forsaking tennis on that middle Sunday. This weather -- worthy of Noah's Ark -- doesn't appear to be letting up anytime soon. We're looking at a slew of back-to-back matches later this week. (And, life being heavy into irony and all, yesterday (middle Sunday) was generally sunny and pleasant.)

Ahhh...!! Those officials better either release a statement of the horrible way they're handling things, or all the players should team up and sue them! Grrr, As you can tell, I'm irritated!

I'm not sure Jon Wertheim's 2 pence on anyting gives the issue more credibility in general.

But here, it's hard to disagree that they should have scheduled matches on Sunday.
