why didn't they build it with a roof? :(

I know! Considering it's a brand new stadium they could have done it, and it would eliminate some of the pollution stuff surrounding the games.

its not looking promissing for the next few hours, the court looks very shiney when wet lol.

seriously this realy could kill some players chances at the us open, if matches get back logged, a lot of players are playing singles and doubles. if they have to use extra days and the fact that there the other side of the world to america. im expecting some tierd players in the open.

Tennis should apologise to all other outdoor sports- if Tennis wasen't there I gurantee there wouldn't be any rain :o

As long as today is the only day this happens, players should be fine. They'd only have one singles match per day to the final, and 5 doubles matches to Sunday (meaning two days of only singles). This is, of course, assuming the player is entered in both events and contends in both.

If the rain keeps up, the US Open will have some weary players...

actualy i was thinking about venus in particular, im not sure playing the olympics will do her any good in regards of the us open. we know she has anemia and she might have to play 11 matches in 6 days on the other side of the world. i just remember last year when she did herself in playing those 3 asain events and then pulled out of the YEC.
i want venus ready for he us open, as im desperate for a decent slam where we have great matches between the top players from the 4th round onwards. seems so long ago since that happend!

I think shell be ok for the USO cuz u get everyother day off. But haveing her not play today is worrying cuz she gets no break now and with the heat, doubles and everything its going to be quite the tournament. jus hope for the best :angel:

Thats a good one....and considering that track and field is to start when tennis is scheduled to be at its end. Hope tennis is not cursed to the point where the schedule is so confusing... Guess this is what happens when you escape a relatively rain free Wimbledon....it catches up with you at some point.

I agree with you that it could be slightly problematic for Venus... but at the end of the day, if Venus didn't think she could handle it, she wouldn't be there, right? So we'll how it goes if weather continues to suck.

But yeah like V Star said, you'll get every other day off at the USO, so there'll be plenty of rest time.

After moving on to "Shape of My Heart" by Backstreet Boys (how and why do I remember this song?) they played some cool r&b/rap Chinese song. The singer had a good voice :cool:

The camera is panning around to show some pretty bored and pissed off peeps :tape: A good sign is that no one in the crowd is wearing a rain coat, and the ball kids are on the court...

Anyone can beat Gonzo especially post 2007 AO Final. It's called ball control and placement to his BH and patience.

I hope Blake wins, but Gulbis/Davydenko will be far more entertaining than Blake/Guccione so that's what I'll watch. :shrug:

It's her FO 2008 dress (badmemories:sobbing:) with a different color scheme. I don't like the baby blue I would have preferred a darker blue and her hair is a mess, but in essence the same style as 2008 FO (badmemories:sobbing:).

I'm disappointed I expected something flashy especially after seeing Abrena again.

On a positive note, hopefully this rain will reduce the temperture for the next few days and it might also have a positive effect on the area's pollution. Providing there is no more rain for the next couple of days at least this, might actually turn out to be a blessing in disquise.

That is really bad news. Players especially the favorites would want to be out of Beijing in time for preparation for US Open. Should they extend the schedule, winners of this Olympic event may not have enough rest time for the grand slam.
