Re: Nando VS Ivo- Indoors Or Outdoors?

At the minute, according to the Nottingham website, the doubles Final is being played indoors because of heavy rain this morning and I've just heard from my hubby (who's just about to leave Liverpool) that it's raining there right now. So it's not really looking hopeful that the Nando/Ivo Final will be played outdoors on the grass.

Yep, just your typical summer grass court tennis weather. Looking really hopeful for Wimbledon again, ain't it!!

The doubles is happening right now. 6/6 3/3 Who's Nando? or is that some nickname...only in the UK. I guess it's better than Fern..or Verd. Or Asco.

Doubles is done...Betfair says stand-by for streaming but they've said that for a while. Serve big for a change, Ivo. LOL

The covers are off in Nottingham

Doubles final was played indoors but the singles final should be played outdoors if the rain holds off.

Glad I chose to avoid attending the final as I had done for the preceding 5 years. Looks like it is starting outside, but it wouldn't be a surprise if it has to be completed indoors. Good luck to the spectators, and hopefully neither player will sustain an injury.

Start on grass and end up indoors? That is bizaare. Anything happening? Maybe thet're setting up cameras indoors for the networks/betting sites?

It's raining again so play will start indoors in 10 minutes.

Showing the indoors court...looks like a court in your city owned tennis facility, which I'm sure it is. I don't see any place for fans...Oh my...what a preparation for Wimbledon. Don't think they had this tournament very well thought out LOL see for yourself. http://www.justin.tv/federer1
