Strasbourg is not that close nor not that far. It is a 4 hour train ride so its gotta be 400 kilometers, but im guessing of course. I just was there 2 weekends ago, its so beautiful, the food is good and cheap, and thats about :wavey: all; :rolleyes: :mad: :worship: :wavey: :angel: :angel: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :

Please, make that forecast rain stop and go away...Not only is it rainy but it's also rather cold for the season. Temps for Rg time are usually friendlier. I don't know how I'll react if it pours rain when I am there next week... :devil:

Oh last thing, Strasbourg is very nice indeed and the food, well, I couldn't say better! :D

I know a swiss guy who should not be very happy hearing that...Not only him... but several Americans and even maybe one Frenchman, among many others :p

Last I checked, the rain was going away for next week. I know weather.com isn't the most accurate site out there, but now it does say some rain this wekeend, then stopping for a few days at the beginning of next week, then starting again at the end of next week. Rain is no fun, it needs to go away so the tourney can go off uneventfully. We'll get plenty of rain for Wimby, we don't need it for RG too :lol:

Ah Choupi, i think we would have fun together in Strasbourg! If you are a man and like to drink beer, lets take a sejourn, but if you are a woman, we shall eat nice tart flamb near by ze cathedrale. I pay, cause the prices are much cheaper than Paris. I :hearts: love :hearts: Strasbourg. Best city ever!

I am hearing crappy weather friday sat and sunday and clearer skies for the start of the tournament. also anyone going to qualifiers.. the FFT said the gates will open at 9 am and not 11, probably to compensate for the piss weather. Oh, and the french are not very accurate. probably cause the weather changes rapidly in france;.. you have "averses" spots of rain that can be very strong, then it goes away for a couple hours only to come back later. very stop and go... as soon as the tarp comes off and you want to play, it starts to rain again. :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

No weather forecast is accurate. I live in California where it is sunny and warm 90% of the time and yet they are STILL Wrong all the time with the forecasts :haha: All we can do is hope that something magical happens so that there's a nice tourney that can run without incident :D

LOL joske, we can try Carlos too :p

bummer... at least they can play on clay if it's a little bit damp. And hopefully it will clear up by the second week.

And we're supposed to have another bad hurricane season too! :umbrella: :rain:

Hehehe! Have a guess...I don't drink beer and I'd go for the tarte flambe. :D Last time I was in Strasbourg, it was for the Davis Cup in March. All I saw was the Rhenus Hall and the European Parliament! :rolleyes:

I also know a Swissman who will be very said if it rains. Might not be the same person though? ;)

Here is the french weather link: http://www.meteofrance.com/FR/index.jsp

I still cant figure out why there is no text to read, just a little picture, and you click above on the time to see what the weather will be like at that hour. You just see little pictures of clouds. I am assured by many french people that though they say rain for 3 days, it doesnt mean that it will RAIN NONSTOP for that period. what can you do?

OK, Ive been speaking to my people. Unanimously they all agree that it is unlikely that rain prevent play for more than an entire day. Usually in france when they say its going to rain, it rains in the morning, they begin play and after a set and a half they have to stop cause it rains again. then they cover up and maybe in the evening, a few matches are played. So i doubt it will be as severe as US Open was in 2003. LET US PRAY

yeah, it doesnt look that good actually. have you checked out the meteo.fr link i posted? if you go to friday 20h00 it shows lightning. it lights up and all and its very intimidating. but i cant see that lasting for days and days. Itll probably stay like it is now just cold, grey and cloudy, moisture in the air but not raining.

well there is always the snackbar! :) beers are not expensive ;) There are probably more players who are asked to appear at the signing tables :D and there are excellent video games there too ;) In my 5 years, though there have been delays it doesnt last forever and you will probably see some tennis. Ive never heard of an entire day cancelled :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

ditto *sigh*

And even if it doesn't rain it's probably going to be cloudy and windy as it has been the past few days :rolleyes: .... players can play, but it's not funny for the crowd... last year it was bloody freezing on the charity day, i hope this year it will be better :rolleyes:

OHH..one thing i love about RG..that it has far more stable weather than Wimbledon..it doesnt rain that much ..disturbing matches every now and then..

Well, Any way Rain is good..may be carrying good news and results for some players.. ;)

No kidding, thought I was going to freeze to death last year. But then again, I'm from Florida and chill when the temps drop under 80F....

Guys, the weather forecast has been all over the map the past few days...but in case it doesn't, I shall need to pack the flask (for the armagnac) to mix in with those cafe long...I'm easily entertained!

Good Idea Michele, armagnac hits the spot. Beer is also good. Today is clear clear skies, a bit chilly but not a cloud in the sky.

The winter jacket sounds a bit too much Mrs B...but it's as you feel! ;)

And Michelle, too sad we won't meet! Armagnac sounds really cool for me! :D

or wimbledon is most years...

all GS's should have a few retractable ceiling courts like the AO.
