Djokovic was rolling in the wet stuff before the rain delay. When he came back his momentum was gone and it was back to even basically. And Federer in '11 played better in the start when it was sunny IIRC. Haven't seen the highlights of that one in ages.

Important thing to point out though, is that with 'wet conditions' we don't mean the disgusting conditions of the third set of the RG 2012 final. Those were conditions where they should've stopped and is not something we need to associate with 'playing' conditions.

Wet conditions should be simply more damp, but still playable. And in those, Nadal still has no problem with anyone despite it favouring other players.

Stan will probably just play few last games today, and wait fresh and relaxed for the winner of Janowicz - Haase, which hasn't even started.

Gotta love those rain delays.

Somebody is bound to screwed, it can't be helped until they get a roof, but even then it will be the same on smaller courts

It rained on the 2011 Roland Garros Final between Nadal and Federer. I'm sure Nadal will welcome exactly the same this year

Are we complaining about rain in this thread or about Nadal?

It is raining in London this morning. Not looking good for today, but it is fairly light so there could be dry intervals.

What I don´t understand is why they start so late on Center Court, why not start 11:30 like other courts and have more matches through during rain delay...?

They want to keep the number of matches to a minimum in order to conserve the grass for longer.
