Re: The Rain Haters thread

Well they've just announced play tomorrow - only the 3rd time in Wimbledon's history. About time!

The fuddy-duddies have decided to get with the times then, have they?

I wonder if it will be a Monday finish? Then again the real tournaments start on the Monday after Wimbledon.

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".

Well they have but they're certainly not happy about it They just interviewed Alan Mills and Chris Gorringe on TV - Gorringe especially was absolutely seething about having to open up on Sunday - guess they're afraid they'll attract the "wrong kind of fans" there - you know the ones prepared to queue who really love tennis, instead of the debenture holders and corporate hospitality! And have a tendancy to agree with you about the "real" tennis - can't wait to get off this infernal grass. If this tournament was on any other surface but grass they would probably actually be playing now because it's not really heavy - just drizzle - the kind they play in regularly in Hamburg on the clay.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Re: The Rain Haters thread

they just announced on ESPN2 that they'll have coverage at 10am tomorrow (this wasn't originally on the schedule), probably for 3 hours til NBC starts at 1. ESPN's coverage is 3 hours of Week 1 highlights so hopefully that will be either live or at least Sunday's current play. Then ESPN2 has another highlights show at 7pm so hopefully that will again be play from Sunday, not just week 1 highlights

Re: The Rain Haters thread

It kinda sucks because it's been raining here (Texas) all of last week and it's forecast to rain ALL the way until next Friday! I can't watch tennis and I can't play either
