The weather was a mess in Berlin and Rosmalen. They'll get all the matches in.

With the weather as it is in London this weekend - I wouldn't rule out a 4th week. Its like deepest November out there. :rain:

Seriously - now Glastonbury is finished the monsoon season is over. :D

I think the most likley outcome is play on the middle sunday, other than that it should be fine.

Yes thats cause it was very windy... if 3 weeks is needed then fine. Fed Cup can wait...

Ihope it rains and they have to play the middle sunday or the 3rd week monday, thus giving the 'true' fans more of a chance in obtaining tickets.
It makes for a more interesting atmosphere - i.e 2001 mens final

That's wrong.
During first week it's probable that play will be frequently interrumpted, but from next weekend or maybe a bit later high temperatures are announced.
From what I heard, July will be very warm, hot in Western Europe.

Yup. Totally agree. The weather report doesn't even sound that bad. My guess is there will be interuptions for the 1st 4 days but also good spells of continuous play. They may fall a bit behind schedule, but when you have 13 days to complete 7 rounds you can afford quite alot of interuptions. The tournaments that suffer the most with heavy rain delays are the ones that have to fit in 6 rounds in 7 days.
