Please send all unwanted rain to Australia. We need it! They don't!

Re: The Rain Haters thread

I meant "they" don't need it as in London, not Sharjah, of course. Sharjah can have some too

This is a great thingy isn't it? the little guy looks so forlorn!

at everyone in this thread.

We should bump this up during the next rain delay to pass time.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Beautiful rain, singing in the rain, but no tennis at Wimbledon in the rain, what a great English summer, this is one of the best Wimbledon's so far.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Yes, one of the best. Mr.Alan Mills is going to have his hands full.

Btw, the prediction for today is not encouraging as well.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

I doubt we'll get much play today. Maybe enough to allow Coria to finish, but less than an hour so the spectators can get their money back.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

I'm about 30 miles from Wimbledon, here it's a bit brighter right now, not raining, but it's windy. But don't hold your breath, there's a lot of black clouds, so it will probably be pouring in a few minutes.

Oh yes - we have lots and lots and lots of lovely rain here now - half an hour before play is due to start! And it's so windy the poor little man wouldn't be able to keep his umbrella up - mine kept blowing "inside out" on the way to work this morning!!

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Play on Day 3 has been suspended indefinitely due to persistant rain.

What happens to the schedule if there is no play today?
