At least another hour before any play will be possible - it is still raining here now - very steady and doesn't look like stopping. And yes they have moved Roddick to Court 1 when/if they ever start again.

Yeah I did see him, he was really entertaining. Interactive viewing is quite fun, on the whole, wish I could get it all season long.


About weather- Please stop raining, it's so damn annoying that just 6 miles out we have bright sunshine.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

And speaking of commercials, that one with the guy walking out of his office to go home, with constantly changing clothes as he walks. I don't even know the name of the company even though they show the commercial at every break. I just keep thinking that guy has a big head and looks like an asshole. I wouldn't want to work for him.

And seems like you may have to see John again because they were just about to walk on court and - guess what - more rain! Now I know why I hate Wimbledon and I loathe grass courts - any other surface they would probably have got a fair bit of play in today because the rain has not been heavy - just steady English "drizzle" - but on this damned slippery grass - just not possible

I think that's the HP commercial you're talking here.

Commercials? I'm so glad we don't have to suffer those

McEnroe is gone to NBC now, so BBC viewers won't have to see him until the review show tonight, although I have to say he and Peter Fleming sparring was quite entertaining. I expect we'll have Boris Becker for the rest of the singles semis, if we *do* get any play.

Really - didn't know that. Mind you he had been very ill for a while hadn't he - with heart problems. He was such a brilliant actor when he was younger.

Btw - covers coming off again at Wimby.
