Re: The Rain Haters Thread!!! (Weather Updates/Complaining)

Here's hoping Fed v Blake will be nice and short so Roger can kick ass in the doubles too.

^^ Thanks for the info. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

Apparently Federer and Wawrinka are playing cards in the athletes' lounge.

If they don't start today, Fed would have to play 4 matches tomorrow

They are done drying the court. Hopefully, the players will be coming out soon.

Football is one of the few areas of life where even if you're untutored, you can go to a ground and see George Best beat three men, and you can realise, 'I have seen genius.'

According to the ITF guy, it's still raining lightly as of 7:10 pm.

Re: The Rain Haters Thread!!! (Weather Updates/Complaining)

Well, I am watching the court live on my computer and they had a guy out there with one of those big fans that dries the court and he just left. I don't have sound, so maybe he gave up, but he seemed to be drying every part of the court. I can't tell if there is any rain.

inefficiency is not a problem for the chinese, they'll just bring 10 more guys to dry the courts

OK, the fan is back out, and now there is a guy drying off the lines with a towel.
