:mad: I can't believe it!! I sacrificed alot in order to be able to watch the quarter-finals today and what do I get? rain and repeat of marit/david match:( Judging by the live pics Eurosport showed a while ago of Roland Garros, I wouldn't be surprised if the rain lasts all day.It really looks very miserable there and the rain don't look like its just a quick shower,more heavy persistant rain.Still we better think of poor Sam Smith who has come all the way over from London supposing to commentate on the quarters,looks like a wasted journey for her. Just for the record, the weather where I am is lovely today,I'd even swap it for the rain at RG right now so we could get some play:o

Well it is barely raining in Paris. Just tiny little occasional drops. My colleagues boss just left to go to RG with a client. REally we should be happy to have perfect weather for the qualifiers and perfect weather up til now.

Whats the betting if it is still rainnig come 12,Eurosport will either (a) continue to show Marit/David match, (b) show another mens' match from yesterday or (c) show Tim's 'heoric' 4th-round match:o

Wait. No...sorry. It's just a Henman match. The bad snaggle tooth

I wish all the rain from Roland Garros and heading there (including for tomorrow and after that) would come to Dubai...

I was just bored stiff watching Henman repeat and it seems that the arabic sports channel isn't patient enough to show tennis. They'll show football live. On no.

So what are the geniusees at ESPN going to do if Venus/Myskina starts? Are they going to stop and show this match or continue showing a match that ended more than half hour ago?
