If you're a tattie farmer:shock:
Centre Court NOT looking good, won't win Wimbledon.
Is this new clay or something?
This is the most damaging piece of evidence to surface for people that deny the homogenization of surfaces. That grass court looks not to grassy to me :twisted:
Would be interesting to see how it plays though.
Looks like eventually everything will just become clay.
I wonder how that court plays.
is there anything they won't do for Nadal?
Brings a new meaning to "dirt" surface.
There's an even better photo of this, that makes Centre Court look like it hasn't got a roof in 2012 - when really, the whole roof structure just gets pushed to the northern part of the court as shown above.
Thanks for the pic. But WTF is a 'tattie'? I remember one of your fellow Brits trying to tell us Americans we use too much slang. *rollseyes*
I'm pretty sure it's a potato.
Meh..., just spray paint it blue and it will be fine.
That would have been my guess. But the Brits denial of using a ton of slang stands. I've been traveling to Asia a lot and hear 'English is hard to learn' - upon further investigation, they're trying to learn from 'English English'.
I think in Britain slang varies widely depending on location. Scotland namely has many terminologies for things that would never be used in England and Wales and this is true of the other way around.
Stop this grass court nonsense. Grass is for cows.
It all makes sense now...
It's easier for me to Understand American Slangs,as I have learned tons from watching hollywood movies,lol.. .I am not much familiar with British slangs, partly due to the fact that I raraely talk in english in my real life and I have never ever seen British movies..
It wasn't slang - it was Scots.
And you were right - tattie = potato
British slang is similar to Australian slang, so it's easy for me to follow.
The English speak bad English. Fink about it if your from Lundon.
Parts of Scotland eg where I'm from speak horrendous English.
Bu'er instead of butter. Remember those t's if you're from Dundee.
USA have a terrible habit of changing things.
It's colour not color and 9/11 is the 9th of November - logically day, month, year.
Worlds complicated enough without screwing up the dates.
Thanks Master Gates for promoting that one.
As an example France, unlike UK, is more homegenous both in terms of accents and linguistics. Something that has surfaced of late with the Scots wanting independace et al.
That's because Brits, unlike Americans, don't think raising their voice makes their foreign language easier to understand.
In any case tattie is not actually slang. It is one of a number of proper names for what most people call potatoes, albeit a less commonly used one.
Separate names with a comma.
