Has anybody blamed the Americans yet for the rain delays in England?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: The Rain Haters thread

I live in the UK for nearly 3 years now and rain is something you deal with nearly every week here... And what a surprise it was really hot two weeks ago and started to get worse last week end! There is a curse on tennis's head i'm telling you...

Q. As the older player, you don't feel like it's your role to go up to the younger players and talk to them first?

JEFF TARANGO: To say what? "Welcome to the locker room. Don't bend over for the soap."

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Thanks AGAIN!!

Here are some updates from the Moderator at the live ESPN chat from Wimbledon:

"A couple changes made to the schedule .. on Thursday and Friday, play on the outside courts will begin at 11 a.m. local time and the Men's Doubles has been reduced to 3 sets up until but not including the quarterfinals" (FINALLY!!!!!!)

"They prefaced the announcement by saying they would not start again if an ''imminent chance of rain persisted'' .. it does look rather imminent .. "

"We are still awaiting the start of play .. the tarps are still on .. the wind is still whipping around ... "

Re: The Rain Haters thread

yea... here's an article from the BBC
-------
Rain hits Wimbledon

By Piers Newbery
BBC Sport at Wimbledon

Wimbledon officials have been forced to bring forward the start time for Thursday and Friday following a third day of prolonged rain on Wednesday.

Play will now start at 1100 BST on the outside courts and 1200 BST on Centre Court and Court One.

There has been no play so far on Wednesday, and none likely until at least 1800 BST, and a number of matches have already been cancelled.

Martina Navratilova and Roger Federer were among those due to play.

Officials still hold out some hope that Andy Roddick and Guillermo Coria will complete matches, and that Greg Rusedski will begin against Davide Sanguinetti.

Delays on the first two days of the Championships left organisers 45 matches behind the schedule.

Should the bad weather continue, the referee's office could decide to use the middle Sunday, although that decision is some way off.

In Wednesday's remaining scheduled matches, Roddick leads Taipei qualifier Yeu-Tzuoo 4-2 and Coria's match against Wesley Moodie goes into a third day, with the Argentine third seed 5-3 up in the final set.
