Re: The official Wimbledon Rain Delay Thread

Why do Wimbledon matches always start around 12 or 1? You'd think they would start earlier like the other GS, especially since it rains all the time and they never start when they are supposed to anyway!

With the delays we get at Wimby, they'd have to officially start play at 3am in the morning - should be playing at 5pm

Rain is forecast to stop between 3 and 4. So play should start by 4.30- 5
