Just the usual Paul - "....Ladies and gentleman.....blah,blah.............providing there is no further rain.....blah,blah..'...the covers will be removed at 6.30pm.....blah, blah...and a court inspection will take place...". You know the usual announcement they always make to stop people leaving the grounds! It's so dark and windy though - even if the rain does hold off - don't think they should expect people to play in these conditions.

Same with the BBC then as they said they are hopeful of play. At the moment though the tent is still up on centre court.

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Wasn't there supposed to be a break in the weather? It looked kinda clearish, when I saw the webcam, 5 min ago

Oh definitely! I suppose they could bring out the few matches where there's only a few points or a game or two but yea otherwise it seems silly. Though even if they can play for a half hour and get one set in.... it's an enticing prospect lol
