SQ # 5: Why did the residential area get built next to Wimbledon

which ever one applies
Wimbledon moved to its current location in 1922 so I think they just underestimated back then how popular the event would become. Personally, I think the AELTC should strike a deal with Wimbledon Club (on the other side of the road) and use their ground for tournament matches.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

SQ # 7: When there is an indefinite interruption during a match due to rain, are new balls brought in once the match resumes or do they resume with the old balls (considering there are still legit games to be played with them)?

Wrong thread. This is a critical and not a stupid question.

Wrong forum. This question is not about the players. Please. This is GM.

They use the old balls.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Why is the Australian Open the only one where there's no delays?

And people say the AO's a useless Slam.....

Neither, the answer is Halle. I think it closes in 18 seconds.

The new slow, high bounce surface is a joke. It makes for boring tennis, like the 6 hour moonballing, ass picking, ball bouncing, time wasting snooze fest.

I loved AO when people playing attacking tennis could actually win.

Negative. You are wrong, just wrong.

Seriously at least provide some rationale before passing judgement. These posts are worse than GIF spam.

Maybe you like defensive tennis, that's okay.
