Every tennis match should be indoors!

Let's face it. Rain ruins tennis. Kiefer was destroying Gicquel until the rain comes and takes away the match from the german. Wind makes players make mistakes and takes away public. Tell one positive thing about outdoor matches and I maybe I can change my opinion again.

But for now rain ruined my day...

Re: Every tennis match should be indoors!

All in all, the tour has been really lucky since last Wimbledon where very few tournaments have had major rain delays. It's been a good run so it was bound to end sooner or later. The good thing is that forecasts call for clear skies and nice sunny weather for almost the rest of the tournament.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Every tennis match should be indoors!

What a dreary idea - it would take an awful lot of the variety out of the game at a stroke.

Not to mention the psychological aspect of how players handle rain delays.

No thanks. The odd rain delay is annoying but the alternative is tedious in the extreme.

Re: Every tennis match should be indoors!

Lawn Tennis should be played indoors, but for a change Table Tennis should be played outdoors. It takes less time to dry the table than the court. What do you think?

Re: Every tennis match should be indoors!

Even though I´ve been plagued by rain several times in my tennis-watcher career (and my last tourney was the ARAG WTC a week ago!!!), tennis is a sport which is played outside as often as possible.

Wind, drizzle, rain storm, thunder storms, bee attacks...in my opinion tennis is not just about two persons and a ball but also about how the two persons handle the external conditions.

Personally I prefer playing indoors too but that´s just because I love carpet.

It's harder to get a sun tan playing or watching indoors.

Re: Every tennis match should be indoors!

No, keep it outdoor. Rain break is interesting. Lots of people thank rain break the win and lots of matches turned after rain break and has make things interesting!

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!



Zero tolerance against dopers!

One of the challenges for players is how they respond to the elements.

Re: Every tennis match should be indoors!

One of the nicer things about is, that onder to win a Grand Slam like this one now you have to master different conditions.
