too far away
even 5 days in advance is.

i'm hoping for a big fat high pressure system to land over the North Sea and block all the Atlantic sytem coming over.

Excuse me guys, but is has to be like that when playing lawn tennis. I don't need sunshine, it needs to be raining constantly, I need to see umbrellas and people in raincoats waiting for the clouds to break up and make some playing possible. THAT'S Wimbledon and that's how it always was. ;)

Weather has been great so far. OK, on Monday there were problems as play started only at 13:45, but then it was great after that. Yesterday play was stopped after 19:30 or so, but great weather before that. Forecast for today is good too.

Wimbledon fears too much sun


By Mark Hodgkinson

Last Updated: 21/06/2007


Rain and Wimbledon go together like strawberries and cream but next week's Championships will, for the first time, have an official sun-lotion provider.

All England Club officials are worried about the possibility of spectators suffering from sunburn and sunstroke. It is not global warming that has prompted their concern but the fact that Centre Court will this year be totally open to the elements because of the work being done to construct a retractable roof in time for the 2009 tournament.

That means everyone in the stadium, including those in the Royal Box, will have no protection from the sun.

"We felt an extra responsibility this year as the roofless Centre Court means an extra 14,000 people could be in the full glare of the sun," a spokesman for the All England Club said yesterday.

"It therefore made sense to have an official sun-cream provider, Ambre Solaire, in order to minimise the potential effects of the sun by offering sun-care advice and products not just to spectators, but to players, court officials and ball boys and girls as well."

However, a glance at the weather forecast for next week suggests Wimbledon would have been better placed agreeing a deal with a manufacturer of umbrellas, with showers predicted.
