Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

How the fuck does it keep raining? I keep checking the forecast and it says 15-30% chance of precip.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

All play has been canceled. In the words of Donald Young, fuck the USTA.

EDIT: Women's matches still on. Unlikely to happen though.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

Why so harsh? It's a good decision, players don't have to sit there and wait, wait, wait(...), wait but they can do their own business. And we can go to bed not afraid that we'd miss some action

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

They should just do what the Chinese did for the Olympics. Shoot some stuff in the sky to delay the rain...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

It sucks that all four womens Quarter Finals are gonna be played at the same time if we do get any play.

I don't really see the rush to get those matches out of the way to be honest. I suppose they just want as much time for the men to finish their matches over the next few days as they can.

Flavia, Caro and Andrea were talking to the WTA supervisor in the tunnel of Ashe, ESPN just showed.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

Hmmm, if they're discussing something then I can see the Quarter Finals being cancelled quickly then. It's not really fair to keep everyone waiting around all night.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol2

The problem is nobody knows exactly how long this dry spell will last cos showers are expected this evening and no player likes to play a match that they believe will be interrupted several times after 1 or 2 games. Esp not a QF match.

Re: They are drying the courts!!

It's true, OMG can't wait for Sam's match.

MIRJANA LUCIC-BARONI ☢ | SAM STOSUR ☯ | MARTINA HINGIS ♚ | DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ✯ | MADISON KEYS ☢ | OLGA PUCHKOVA ❤

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Did you just compare me to Wozniacki? - Legend
