Here's hoping Fed v Blake will be nice and short so Roger can kick ass in the doubles too.

They are done drying the court. Hopefully, the players will be coming out soon.

Well, I am watching the court live on my computer and they had a guy out there with one of those big fans that dries the court and he just left. I don't have sound, so maybe he gave up, but he seemed to be drying every part of the court. I can't tell if there is any rain.

OK, the fan is back out, and now there is a guy drying off the lines with a towel.
