Default Will the players be playing 2 matches in a day soon?

Just wondering, like what they do in US Open, of course, with the exception of Andy.....What a funny weather, it's so hot and sunny everywhere esp in Vancouver, but raining in Britain, guess i was meant to be.

They're actually not that far behind schedule although today could see no play at all. Tomorrow will be important, if there's any significant stoppage then they'll be in trouble but the forecast is better.

Highly unlikely anyone will have to play 2 matches in any one day.

With the forecast, I won't be surprised if it happens.

Expect, Mr.Mills to give a statement like 'we have completed more matches at this stage than we were in 1991', etc.

I think it's highly likely they will do another "Peoples' Sunday" and play on the middle Sunday as well - they have done that before when schedules fell too far behind. The forecast is certainly not good for the next few days here(only Friday looks OK), and it's pretty much the same all over Northern Europe I think.

Yep basically all Third Round matches need to be complete by the end of this week so Im sure they will have to use Sunday - unless they put the whole of the doubles/juniors back to start next week but only on outside courts.

In fact they decided to make all double matches be 3-sets in stead of 5-sets until the quarters to make it shorter...
