Tennis should be played in the rain.

Unless the rain is totally ridiculous, tennis shouldn't be stopped for rain. Would add extra drama and it will be good watching these pansy tennis players slip and slide all over the place. Ok, they might get injuries.....but shit happens.

Absolutely, as long as when "shit happens" the ATP compensates the players from taxing tennis gamblers.

Quality thinking.

Re: Tennis should be played in the rain.

It would if the lines werent slippery...Why is it the lines? Are the plastic on hard courts? I dont think so so y is it a big deal.? And on grass, maybe they should just paint the lines at Wimbledon..Then we wont hae any rain delays and it will be just like a football match.

Re: Tennis should be played in the rain.

Gamblers should be put behind closed doors. They could follow matches live (on scoreboards of course)and everytime they'd insult a player they'd get a punch. Ok they'd probably be cerebral haemorrages in the end but...shit happens.

Sure, let's also have some tourneys on ice and sand. Just for the hell of it!

You want excitement? How about making players play on fire hot coal bare footed?

Bet no one will slack off then.

Main Husbands
The Serbian Moron
That Pasty Scottish Bloke

The side pieces
The Sweet but Dopey Argentine
The Bulgarian Headcase
That Douche from Australia

And when the daylight's fading we're gonna play in the dark til it's golden again

How about playing bare footed on broken glass? I mean, I love Nadal and everything but we should keep a level playing field here.

The only thing is hard courts.

You can slip and roll an ankle easily. Been there

Clay should become a mud war.

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?
