Eastbourne-QF: Smart or just stupid?

I never seen this happen before. It's late in the afternoon and the sun is shining. "Well, let's just cancel all play and move the matches"!?

There must be a storm coming or something similar? Otherwise this is a huge joke. Even Simon Reed said it was shocking.

Eastbourne is a farce for the second year in a row.

Play is stopped while tea is being sipped. Nr.1 rule.

If there's another rain-delay some players might be too tired to play Wimbledon 1st round properly

It does look a bit silly on the face of it but I guess they have done it for a very good reason...

I bet the spectators at Eastbourne would love to hear the reason.

Re: Eastbourne-QF: Smart or just stupid?

The weather here has been fine for almost 3 hours, and there has to be another couple of hours' light left tonight. Bizarre. Hopefully the Seppmeister is prepared to fight through the delays and dazzle Devonshire Park for the second year in a row.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.
