^That would mean that Sam would have to try to beat Venus and Serena on the same day. Not sure whether that's ever been done.

Hmm, good point.

So we need to invoke the power of God, Satan, Dionysus or whoever controls the weather to leave exactly enough time for Sam to win one match a day, but to immediately make play impossible after that

The weather forecast has been revised a little, at least in terms of rain chances. Still very cold and windy though.
