    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.

    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!

    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.

    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...!!!!!!!

    Stupid rain cancelled my league match last week, and now this! If it continues for 2 minutes longer, my day will be ruined. Stupid global warming and changing weather patterns...people!: Begin recycling and stop driving those SUVs!

    It's restarted, we now have 2 idiots running onto court I think :roll: but Fed has a break.

    Pity, brilliant though Fed is, I'm really rooting for Anjic.

    Loved the way the BBC wouldn't give them any "exposure" if you'll forgive the pun.:mrgreen:


    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.
