Does anybody else feel like this during tournaments?

Whenever I'm @ home watching tennis on television, I obviously want the match to be played while I have time to watch. Rain delays drive me absolutely insane, especially during Wimbledon.

Does anybody other than myself secretly HATE the people in the stands who put their umbrellas while the match is going on? It's almost like they are wanting the match to be stopped....LOL! I know. . .I know. ...when it's raining, I'd not want to get wet either, but damn. Those umbrellas drive me wild because I know play is about to be stopped.

that's definitely because your sitting in your comfy home watching but trust if you were in that cold windy weather you'd put your umbrella up ASAP.

Very true, I purchased my first umbrella at Wimbledon last year on the first day of play. I declared myself too cool to own an umbrella before that point.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

Most of my life, except when my Mommy made me use her umbrella, I could get by with a hat and a jacket. At Wimbledon that first day there was nowhere to hide. I had covered seats on Center Court but it was my first day at Wimbledon (a life long dream) so I had to "go walkabout". The Wimby Shop was sooo packed with people that I think it took an hour to get anything.

Normally, I'd be miserable but my mentality was, "Dude, I got to experience rain at Wimbledon".
