Important thing to point out though, is that with 'wet conditions' we don't mean the disgusting conditions of the third set of the RG 2012 final. Those were conditions where they should've stopped and is not something we need to associate with 'playing' conditions.

Wet conditions should be simply more damp, but still playable. And in those, Nadal still has no problem with anyone despite it favouring other players.

Stan will probably just play few last games today, and wait fresh and relaxed for the winner of Janowicz - Haase, which hasn't even started.

Gotta love those rain delays.

Somebody is bound to screwed, it can't be helped until they get a roof, but even then it will be the same on smaller courts

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Hope he can have a short match tomorrow but who knows...

Rafael Nadal complaining to Pam Shriver on ESPN2 that Fognini was scheduled second yesterday while he was third. "It's not fair."

It rained on the 2011 Roland Garros Final between Nadal and Federer. I'm sure Nadal will welcome exactly the same this year

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

Are we complaining about rain in this thread or about Nadal?

It is raining in London this morning. Not looking good for today, but it is fairly light so there could be dry intervals.

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

What I don´t understand is why they start so late on Center Court, why not start 11:30 like other courts and have more matches through during rain delay...?

They want to keep the number of matches to a minimum in order to conserve the grass for longer.
