Ok these umps have been stupid. Jamea wanted to go in so they play one point and then they stop play:retard: They should have stopped earlier. Im kinda surprised that many different courts were playing while some have been covered.

There were rain delays at RG and at the US Open last year. Even Doha or somewhere like that where you don't imagine they get much rain had a delay. These delays can be useful if you want to go out to the shops or have a meal or something. :)

They sometimes know rain is about to start so they tell the umpires to suspend play at the next appropriate point so the courts can be covered when the rain starts. That's why you get courts stopping at different times.
