So am I!

I'm supposed to be going out later and if I stick in a DVD or Vid who knows what it might record ......... most probably Eurosport 2 news. Knowing my luck the matches will start just as the DVD/Vid comes to an end :eek:

I'm annoyed, I am in bed feeling a bit rough, I have some time off before my new job starts, but I was thinking "oooh thats ok, I get to watch tennis all day"

I'll have to whip out that book I didn't read yesterday cos I watched Brat Camp.

Are players sitting in the locked room to play game while it is raining outside or what are they doing while it is raining. ? It is boring to waiting. Some players loose the match becauce of long waiting.

Justine Fan

If the final is on Saturday, how are they going to get the QF's and SF's done? I know players might have to play 2 matches in a day, but that's not fair really because they will be knackered won't they?

They have 3 courts, so they will have 2 or 3 matches at the same time.

I doubt they are sleeping. otherwise, they'll feel sluggish when it's time for them to play. that's not the best preparation. I dunno...
