Yes - I hate rain interrupting matches - I guess we all do - but remembering back to the US Open last year it isn't only Wimbledon that gets rained on!!!
I do agree that the AELTC could be a bit more flexible with the scheduling though - 1.00pm is FAR too late for a Show Court start when this weather has been forecast here for a long while now. People are queuing for the Show Courts overnight and gates already open at 9.30am, so there wouldn't be a shortage of people to fill the seats for a 10.00am start - the only ones that would be missing would be the corporate hospitalily guests - and that would be a shame wouldn't it
Gee, isn't that what the posters from the U.S. were saying last year? It's not only the USO that gets rained on.
I like tennis outdoors, so I'm not going to complain about rain. It's just part of the deal. It's been raining at Wimbledon for a hundred years. It's ok with me.
I was over Wimbledon before it even started. Seriously....a roof people...that is all that is needed...and how is it going to take 3-4 years to build one....there is no point in building a retractable one....it would never be open, they could slap one on in a month! If not, use that freaking tarp that they use to cover the court when it actually starts raining to cover the hole above. *throws things*

I think wimbledon should be played in a sunny place like spain, and on clay!
What a brilliant idea I might even watch it then! Btw - the weather's even worse here this morning - heavy rain and strong winds kept me awake all night last night - don't hold out much hope for much/any play today.
