Re: Ok, why the hell are they not playing today?
Back when Wimbledon started, Sunday was the only "real" weekend day for workers. Most people worked all Staurday during that time. Showing that they could take an enitre Sunday off, and resuming during the week, showed that work wasn't really important to them. At least, that's why I think it started.
Same with the all white rule, and the banning of professionals- as well as still insisting as referring to female players as "Miss". Stupid, stupid traditions.
