    It looks like there's gonna be rain for a LONG TIME. Perhaps through the weekend :(

    The longer it rains, the less chance Agassi has to win the whole thing. He can't play 3 best of 5 matches in 3 days.

    Yeah... there's a lot of lousy what-ifs that enter the picture.

    The dynamics of the Agassi match. Even if he gets through, what if they cram the crap out of the schedule to get a final for Sunday?

    In a Federer-Roddick match, the situation gets a little funny. If Roddick wins with the help of rain delays, is he suddenly a lucky chump where Federer was all class at Wimbledon (benefitting from a rain delay)? If Federer wins only convincingly after rain delays (like at Wimbledon), will there be silly statements like Fed was choking initially, or that he got lucky?

    The rain plays games with us all :) But at the end of the day, we gotta respect whoever comes out on top at the very end of the day (tournament) ;) But I thought it would be a humorous scenario--if we ended up having all these caveats for results not wanted by any group of tennis fans. Silly, but humorous.

    Anyways... rain sucks...
