if there was rain forcast why did they start play so late? doesnt make sense, easily they could have done a 10am start.
I'm not so sure about that. grass tennis can't be started too early because the dew that collects on the grass overnight has to be allowed to dry up.

ah ok, but at least 11am then? they did on centre and also yesterday was 11am start.

maybe if the grass is still a bit dewy it gets worn out quicker?
it's not that it gets worn out, it's that it gets slippery.

there are bad storms in the northeast. if they're as bad as they sound, there won't be any further play today.

It looks like its stopped raining so play ought to start soon. Last night play lasted until 1am British time so I recon there will still be a bit of play.

Well it should be daylight for at least another 3 hours there, so yeah. If the rain stopped they should be able to resume playing.
