Re: Rain until Friday

What will they seriously do if it rains all week? Push the Open back a week?

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Re: Rain until Friday

Interesting, who ever wins will be attacked by people saying he was helped to the title by the FFT.
I guess the program is going to be seriously messed up. I am sure that by Saturday they will be starting the 3rd Round matches.

There an only be One Nadal

Re: Rain until Friday

This may turn out to be unfair to quite a few players if they end up playing 5 set matches on consecutive days.

Re: Rain until Friday

the worst thing about it is the fact that there'll probably loads of good matches at the same time. you'd have the top-seeded players all playing on different courts and you can just watch one of them. crap!

Re: Rain until Friday

If this rain keeps falling, is there a chance of shorten matches to best of 3, just to get it in?

Re: Rain until Friday

Why is it that the slams seem to be the only tournaments that have rain? I never hear it raining in MM events. EVER. Except last year in Ho Chi Minh, but really, rain just seems to be attracted to the slams
