Rain soaked USA shouldn't hold major tournaments

After a week marked by soggy, rainy disruption, I demand that the Open be moved to sunnier countries, like England, Scotland or Wales...this tournie limps along with vast flooded stands with 15 people in attendance...huddled under umbrellas, hoping not to be swept away by a freak wave...

We deserve better!

Scenes from the US Open over the past week...

The crowd take refuge...

They should at least have a roof.

It's rained there more than any other slam this year, right.

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

THE USA and Australia rain the least of the slams, French and Wimbledon rain the most. I think all tournaments should have a roof over center court, but that is just my opinion.

A funny post that is coming from a very bitter Englishman.
Old Ba would give up all those umbrellas quite readily, if he got the chance to leave soggy old London and could come to the dry lands of Hollywoood.
