I don't believe it man, the weather in London over the weekend was beautiful, hot, clear skies.
Then it's heavy overnight rain and already we have a rain delay...
Imagine the people who were lining up and camping out since Friday night!!

It's England. It's Wimbledon. It rains. Every year. Off and on. wherever you are, go sit under an umbrella and pretend you're there eating strawberries.

But not good for tennis..:(

Not good for Agassi. He needs a day off between matches. If rain pushes back the schedule, he is history. If he can play every other day he may make it to the 2nd week.

Man this is torture, they're showing a replay of Ai Sugiyama (JPN) vs Naomi Cavaday (GBR) on the BBC. :(
The guy who started that thread "How come nobody here mention WTA tour?" should see this, it explains everything.

They need a roof, why don't they have a roof with all that money?

This totally messes up my taping schedule. I am going to set to tap Federer and catch Venus and Linsey!

06-26-2006, 09:04 AM
ya wimbledon is going to get a roof like australia, so is the us open... man they need to find 2 weeks where there isnt as much rain, maybe push it back a week or 2...

Rhino
07-05-2006, 04:22 AM
Oh no, not again!!!!
The start of play has been delayed. Please don't let it hold up Federer vs. Ancic, I'm dying to see this match.

They're playing on all the outside courts, so match should start on time. Fingers and toes crossed.

That means ESPN will re-show the Agassi and Roddick matches for yet another time. And if they run out, maybe some William matches.

Yeap gone a be a wasted day for viewing tennis.

Rhino

Well it's dry out there for the moment!!!
Players are warming up :) :)
Looking pretty grey overhead though, could be some interuptions.
Been looking forward to this one since I first saw the draw.
Bring it on...!!!!!!!

Dear lawd, it's bad enough having rain breaks without fools trying to have their 15 minutes of fame. PAH!


Sorry if anyone thought my previous post referred to the players. It didn't but I didn't word it very well.

They may get suspicious when they realise I live in Edinburgh - quite a lot of rain here at times! I would have to convince them my special powers are only activated when taking all expenses paid holidays with daily centre court tickets for the players box! I'm going to get on the phone to them right now...:o
