04.07.10 - Rafa's Express Faster Than The Rest!
13.09.10 - Who is the GOAT now?!
05.06.11 - Where is clayGoat Djokovic?
11.06.12 - NoleSlam denied! 7th Heaven it is!

was just thinking that! totally lame, it's not that hard to line things up so all the top 1/2 would play right after rain and the bottom half later, or vice versa

novak djokovic - my all time favorite!
12 GS and counting, and as always, leaving bad tastes in tracy austin's mouth

italian guys - forza azzurri, especially seppi and bolelli

new generation: impress me! looking for a new 2nd favorite

all time favorites: lleyton hewitt, juan carlos ferrero, michael chang and patrick rafter

NEVER say "i don't care who wins, i just want good tennis" you BETTER pick a side

Damn can't see Ferrer VS Nando now!!! And Nole's pushed out of the show courts too
Luckily Fed/Wawa and Kolya/Nalby still on show

Believe in yourself, Novak.
That's all I ask of you.

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

Court 2 will get on TV?

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

I agree it's a very poor one. It gives Murray advantage over Nalby/Kolya who I think will battle long.

Well, that schedule makes sure that as long as we have 4 hours of non-rain, the singles tournament won't be out of schedule, which is good because the forecast for the next 4 days is more rain.

That's what I think. The organizers just want to get all the matches in.
