I'm really sick of all this shit, you can't watch a tennis match without a rain delay and then you have to wait at least another 30 or 40 minutes until they continue playing

what a joke :banghead:

'Fraid so, bunk. It's been doing this all day here, one minute pouring, next bright sunshine.

I just hope they get both matches in...

jtipson
07-02-2004, 01:36 PM
Me too. It's tough for a finalist if he doesn't get a day off and his competitor does. It's not uncommon for someone who wins a semi on Saturday to still win the final though.

As much as it is annoying to us to not beable to watch the match continuously... It must be even worse to the players... Coz they finally get their rythym going and it starts raining all of a sudden...

SaFed2005
07-02-2004, 01:50 PM

I hope so... Because I've been looking forward to both the semifinals today. I dont want them to keep on getting interfered by rain delays

sometimes yes, sometimes no.... I've seen a lot of players come out better after each rain delay. I suppose it depends on each player, the specific day and his/her mentality, how they're playing that day, etc.

Grrrr, 5 mins of rain, then it is sunny again... they wait doing nothing for like 15 mins while it is sunny... then uncover the court and everything... still sunny.
The players come back onto the court, the sun goes away. They are finally ready to play, after like 40 mins and Bam... rain again :(

Deboogle!.
07-02-2004, 02:21 PM
I know, pinky.... isn't the point of having the covers to insure that play starts again really soon????? :scratch:

uh oh, it looks on the webcam like they're tenting the cover :(

LCeh
07-02-2004, 02:23 PM
Well, without the cover the court will be very slippery, so the covers do do something, but it takes time for them to set up the nets again, and the players can't warm up until the net is set up...

God, this rain is ruining my morning.

Deboogle!.
07-02-2004, 02:26 PM
oh I know, they have to protect the grass. But one of the biggest complaints about the USO was that because they had no covers it took a long time for play to resume... but, it seems like it takes just as long here at Wimby WITH covers :confused:

jtipson
07-02-2004, 02:26 PM
It's quite heavy right now, and the tent is up (as well as everyone's umbrellas). Probably will be quite a while before we get any more play. The beeb has given up for now and gone to a replay of Martina's mixed match last night.

Ancic and Roddick is nothing special so far, just saw two games on TV
both go for big serves and Ancic for volleys at the net

Federer vs Grosjean gives the viewers certainly more interesting variation and exchanges so I can understand all TV stations that are mainly sticking with the Federer/Grosjean match

Andy Roddick takes the first set 6-4!

Neely
07-02-2004, 06:42 PM
Roddick 1st set 6-4 :clap2: :clap2:

there was no real chance for Ancic, even as he had two break points to come back in that last game it was not enough because Roddick dominates with his serve and there is nothing Ancic can do when Roddick is hitting a 2nd serve at 121mph down the T to save a break point...

just too good... deserved 1st set for Roddick

you almost have the impression that Federer can break at will
from time to time, temporarly it almost seems as if he is switching down a gear because he has too many mishits and/or unforced errors, but finally he is too dominant whenever it matters and breaks

5-3* Federer, 2nd set over for Grosjean

Whoa, just got home. Didn't know they were playing both matches at the same time. Well, good luck to all four players. Looks like Federer's gonna take a two sets to love lead. Not a surprise at all. Lets see how much fight Grosjean has. It's definitely not over yet. Hopefully Fed maintains his level of play.

Mario has been left in set 2 down a set with 30-40 Roddick to break back. His great coach Roman Geotzke will tell him to stop playng Roddick from the baseline, and go to his brilliant S & V game. Mario will listen and win in 5. Croatian rain delays rule. GO MARIO!!

wonder who will win the women's?? a 3-setter or a blitz?
