My post had nothing to do with Nadal. Stop showing your insecurities man. It was just a post talking about weather. Damn dude, can't even have a discussion about weather here, I swear.
Yep, you’re a Nadal fan lol. Instantly defensive when challenged on your inaccurate weather assertion.

I’m just saying that you’re wrong

The "heat wave" will last for like 1 day before the tournament. The weather for the tournament will be roughly seasonal average - 22 Celsius.
Sure. I never said to the contrary. But also, it isn't going to be wet and damp as a build up to the tournament like this guy was saying. Not sure why everyone is getting so aggressive about this here. We all know whose backyard this is and I'm not suggesting anything by all this either. Just shared it as a matter of fact thing (which I am kinda regretting now tbh).

It literally has been though.....

You’re just a salty Nadal fan because nothing is going your way for once. I hope the draw delivers another surprise for him. Can’t wait for the meltdown haha

No, it hasn't, so stop already. Record heat wave this week with temps in high 70s all week and no sign of rain the week before Wimby starts. AUFKM?

Yeah, 12 record grand slams and 18 grand slams total so far, leading the Tour Finals race too. Nothing going Nadals way, ahan. Get real. FYI, I'm actually a Fedal fan. When Rafa isn't playing I'm rooting for Fed (and I do get a lot of crap for that too). Read some of my posts instead of getting so aggressive.

But anyway whatever you say man. Life is too short to get upset over anonymous posters on a tennis forum. I'm done with you.

I see an average daily high for the 2 week period of about 22 C (71.6 F) so you did say otherwise with the mid to high 70s value you quoted earlier. "Things are going to be hot, dry and not cold" - I wouldn't call room temperature hot.

There does seem to be some variation in the forecast however with BBC projecting higher temperatures.

Dude, you’re just plan wrong. And you’re salty as hell. 2 days above 25 isn’t a “heatwave”.

It’s been cold and wet for the weeks leading up to the tournament. It was over 30 degrees consistently during the same period last year. Other posters from London have supported my analysis. You’re denying what’s in front of you.

Temp for week before start (Accuweather):
06/25 Tue: 74
06/26 Wed: 74
06/27 Thur: 81
06/28 Fri: 79
06/29 Sat: 77
06/30 Sun: 75

Average: 76.66 F

Temp for week after (July 1st-July 7th)
07/01 Mon: 78
07/02 Tue: 77
07/03 Wed: 78
07/04 Thur: 73
07/05 Fri: 78
07/06 Sat: 77
07/07 Sun: 77

Average: 76.8 F

As I said earlier in my post, mid to high 70s for two weeks. I included this week, which is the week prior to start (avg temp of 76.66), and first week of the tournament (avg temp of 76.8).

Final week of Wimbledon is too far away for most weather apps but BBC has it up there as well.

I would call mid to high 70s hot for Wimbledon. Either way, it isn't cold by any stretch too, if we are going that route.

Nice try. You said, and I quote, "for both weeks of the tournament."

The full quote:

If you guys look at forecasts now the weather will be in mid to high 70s (that's Farenheit for us Yanks) for both weeks of the tournament. Things are going to be hot, dry and not cold.
No one likes a liar, haqq.

Also, those values are incorrect. Are you looking at the correct London? We have a London here in Canada. Here is the accuweather forecast for London, UK

1st Week Average: 71.1 F
2nd Week Average: 72.0 F

Should have known you will troll. Did you bother to check BBC like I said above? Did you see the first weeks temps? You will find that my post is correct. I don't particularly like being called a liar, but I guess I should know where it's coming from. Have a good evening.

You posted values claiming to be from accuweather that are wrong. Please check the link I posted in the edit to my previous post.

So you lied twice, really.

Yeah, I believe they might have come up with the current Formula back in a 2002. However, even in Sampras' time and possibly before that, the seeding appeared to favor results on grass rather than overall ranking from what I recall.
Yes, I remember 1997 Wimbledon because I was there. Chang was world number 2 I think but was seeded at 5. And Ivanisevic was seeded 2 but he was ranked number 3 in the world. So they did favor grass results a bit even then..

It is only fair to ask for a repeat SF of Nadal vs Djoker with no closed roof this time.

If that happens Djokovic loses and Nadal probably wins the title and basically secures Open Era GOAT status since that chalks him up with another non clay slam and he's good for at least 2 more RG titles
