Thanks Meelis

IF you click on this link: http://new.livestream.com/ATP/aegont...014centrecourt

and then click on the Evans/Cox match then skip to about 50:40 you can hear and see the big diggers and how close they are to the Centre court matches - that must be so distracting. I wonder if they are building new facilities for when the tournament is upgraded for next year? I've never been so don't know what the current onsite facilities are.

Road works and train/tram tracks being laid. And yes, it is very distracting and loud. And this time next year, it looks like they'll have the added fun of a noisy train whizzing past every 5 minutes

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Very disappointing loss here in the semi finals of Nottingham. Had two set points to make go into a 3rd set and didn't take them. Unfortunately due to very inappropriate rule, I was forced to withdraw from qualifying of Birmingham. I am also not even allowed to play in next weeks 50k ITF event because players that withdraw from a WTA aren't allowed to play an ITF. So I won't be able to compete in anymore events until Wimbledon. This is very disappointing as the grass court season is short as is and it's essential to get as many matches as possible. It almost feels like a punishment to a player that does well, and then not be able to compete in any events the following week. This is frustrating and hopefully there will be a rule change very quickly to accommodate players that go far in tournaments and still be able to compete in the following week. I find it extremely unfair that this has happened and there is such a rule.

Are you serious?

In Manchester they are expanding the Tram all over the place and it is extremely disruptive but beneficial eventually when they finish. The trams are not that noisy really if the route is for trams only and not other vehicles though. It is so so close to the Centre Court I didn't think it would be anything other than on-site facilities!

Presumably, but they appear to be playing doubles on the ATP live stream and the weather looks OKish at the moment.

Thinking that's not live, though.

EDIT 2: the falcons on the NTU web cam appear dry, or at least their nest does, and more pertinently the ITF live stream says play begins in 3 minutes!
