Re: The Rain Haters thread

In the meantime, if anybody wants to read what I did the past two days, you can go to the "Tournament Tales" forum at the board that I link to in my signature. You don't ahve to be registered to read it.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

I'm just curius: WHY DON'T THEY USE COURT COVERS ON HARD COURTS? It's always quicker to cover the court than to dry it with mops and towels.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Rebecca, what are you doing at the library!!!!!!! You get the most random chances to meet players during a rain delay 'cause they are as hopeless as you! Walk around! Stop talking to us and bump into somebody!

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Rebecca, the rain just sucks. I was supposed to go today but the forecasts were all the same and forever unchanging. I will give it a shot tomorrow!. Oh one more thing, the rain can kiss my ass.

I've been told that t has something to do with the fact that there aren't any drainage systems on hardcourts, and there's no place for the rain water to go once you roll the covers up. Of course that just leads us to the next question, why aren't there drainage systems on hard courts? Maybe expense.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

This is a brand new stadium that they spent tens of millions of dollars on... I see no excuses for anything...

That's a good point, bunk. I got that information from the groundskeeper at my local tennis club. I can understand why a local club wouldn't have the best facilities (the rain removal system there is the members who want to play that day armed with squeegees and towels), but a new, professional facility is different. This might be a good e-mail question for the commentators to answer.
