i dont know whether that would be good for rafa...if his body cools it will be very risky to start playing after that

well, the good news is that i can watch this match at home in HD instead of a computer from work.

the bad news is that i have to wait. :(

DAMMIT, now the US Open will NEVER END!!!!

And I guess Mother Nature really is a *******! (or is it a DelpoTard?)
 
It's supposed to rain all night...Too bad, because this was a pretty good match. I don't know why they didn't start this match IMMEDIATELY after the DelPo match...Night session be damned, they need to get these matches moving.

They are such Idiots.......... took them good 15 minutes to decide to let players go into the lockerooms.

This is definitely bad for Nadal. Gonzo will be fresh tomorrow, and even if he gets beaten, it means Nadal will have to play 3 days in a row - Friday, Saturday and Sunday to win this US Open.

absolutely, they did the same thing last year starting fed and joker an hour ahead of nadal and murray....i saw this coming but part of this nadal's fault for requesting a wednesday start to begin with..i think nadal and murray being in the same half should have played on monday due to what happened to them last year

No he is not. If they can't play tonight what's going to happen? Quarters on friday, semifinal on saturday and maybe final on sunday? We all know what happens with top players and the schedule in Slams.
Yes,, we will need that Miracle Message on his abdomin again,,, that is for sure..

so what do you guys think, is this good or bad for the two?
it will probably be good for both, i would guess, because it will give rafa a chance to get more physical treatment, and it will give Fena a chance to talk to his coach, try to get his head back on straight, as it was starting to bobble ... gonzo bobble head now gets a chance to stop bobbling

Hrm, so should I just go to sleep or what? The announcement was just for a short delay?
the guys doing the radio commentary said 20 minutes when carlos ramos announced the rain delay.

we shall see .... they also mentioned that the rain was starting to come down a lot harder ..... i might end up taking a nap myelf and check back every 20 minutes to half hour for . . . because for sure if it clears up, they are gonna try to finish this match.

I think ESPN360 has replays of today's matches if you want to watch it tomorrow. Just don't check the scores....and stay away from all news.:)

Its funny that Wimbledon is getting retractable roofs, but why can't the US Open get one?
have you noticed how gigantic that top tier is?

they'd probably have to take that off in order to have a roof structure stable enough ....... i heard they were talking about it, but architecturally i honestly dont see how it could be done while leaving the same seating intact.

How do you get those nice pics in your posts ???????:):)
well, first you start with a good quality picture, which this stream is one of the best this year. otherwise, on the freebies, it's way fuzzy. ........ then you do a printscreen, paste it into paint, upload it to your online image host, use their tools to crop it ....... then post it inside the image tags! :)

No. I meant like building a new one with retractable roof.

well, 1:45 ... do you have to work tomorr... er I mean ... today? :confused:
I used to mess up sleep cycle for Feds matches. I stopped doing it when I realized that nothing I can do from the comfort of my own house will help Roger in any way. :)
