Yes, rain is part of the tournament, just like grass is. It was just a "what if..." statement that with the way Roddick was playing prior to the rain delay, he may have won that match if there were no rain delays. IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE ANY KIND OF EXCUSE FOR RODDICK LOSING. It is just speculation since we will never know for sure.
