They say "you don´t need a weather man to know which way the wind blows", but in this case, good luck we have you Paul

Ok the weatherman says the rain should stop in about 30 to 40 mins and then there should be no continuous rain after that. But there still should be some stoppages in play. But at the moment it is still raining heavily.

The weathermen in this country have made some shocking forcasts in the past though, so its by no means a given that we'll get any play at all today. Even if they get under way eventually, that wind is beastly. I sure wouldn't want to play in those conditions. It's frustrating because here, just about 6/7 miles east we haven't really had that much rain and its bone dry now, although the wind is awful.

Still I've been here long enough to expect this, and I am enjoying these classic matches the BBC are showing, quite a bit.

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?

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Well they said here that all 2nd round matches are already called off. And I guess it's not clearing up around 4 like they originally said?

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Thanks for the update Paul. I only wish I could send them my weather, it;s not nice, but at least it's not rain. Hmm I think I'll have to do another rain dance to pass the time, else I'll start getting fed up and I don't like to get moody.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

The tents on the outside courts are currently being deflated as the rain has stopped. But the tents are still up on centre and court 1.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

There is no way that they could finish all the first round match before it gets too dark though.
