Oh well, they spent 120 Million £££ plus to stick one on center (actually had to rebuild the entire court in 10 months due to the older structure being unable to support the 1200 ton weight) just to stop poxy Cliff Richard singing should it rain (money well spent) and now one is being put on number one court soon as well.
Aint no lids at the USO and of course it NEVER rains in NYC does it, it absolutely pisses down there and floods, then out come the court staff and towels to dry the courts, which seems like using a teaspoon to bail out the Titanic if you ask me.
RG is as bad, only the AO has a lid.
Sadly weather gets in the way of most events in most countries in the world and the funny thing is that over out west here in Herefordshire, aint seen no rain to speak of for almost a month and swimming pool needs constant topping up from evaporation, they need to move SW19 over here!
One of the best matches at Wimb EVER and that includes the hair assed ones, was the SF between Serena and Elena, that was a corker and really pissed of Mr Inverdale as he had to talk about womens tennis rather than fantasising over Federers cock as usual.
God, I think I speak for us all when I say how much we miss Elena, theres just no one like her now, was re watching the match where she beat Serena at Toronto, what a contest!!
Elena PROBABLY would've gotten her second Slam--to add to her Beijing triumph--if that net had been just a wee little bit tighter and forced a pop-up on SW's lucky net cord. Would've been an easy putaway for Elena, followed by a final against the clearly worn-down older sister.
RG usually sucks because they play on a surface that's best suited for pottery, NOT sports....and, even worse, lots of French people NOT named Bartoli
It's funny that you mention the Titanic, because that's exactly the sort of gringo excess that we see at the USO facilities. Maybe they think that, if they build something hugely gaudy enough, the rest of the world will get distracted and forget how much they hate the wretched US
My only real beefs with Wimbledon are the court bias in favor of hairy-assed tennis...and the fact that they were so painfully slow in awarding equal prize money to the ladies. I actually like you Brits okay most of the time
, but you DO owe the world a huge apology, with reparative action, for Simon Cowell and One Direction('Numb Erection' sounds better, btw). I recommend dropping the lads in a Belfast prison full of thugs who haven't had conjugal visits or seen their gfs for more than a decade...'Nuff said
. I suppose that the UK is my 2nd favorite Euro nation right now.Belarus gets the #1 nod for flipping their finger at the rest of the continent and keeping the death penalty
If we can't permanently ban hairy-assed tennis altogether, the next best solution is to limit them to only best 2-of-3 sets(WITH a TB in the 3rd)to avoid the sort of shameful,endless goatshit marathon of one-dimensional tennis that Isner and Mahut plagued us with a couple years ago. The men's doubles(again, no more than best 2-of-3) should be forced to play in some remote, rocky, frigid valley in the north of Scotland and, if anyone gave a damn about the results, they could get them via RSS the next day.
If I'm still alive then, I'll enjoy catching Veronika's first Wimby in about 2032
