Well, i have thought about the one with the lights many times, and i don't really know what to think.

I can't imagine a night match at Wimbledon, but i guess it's all to do with keeping the "traditions".

But I voted for the rain and roof, obviously.

I don't know about the rain. It's everywhere and Wimbledon isn't the only tournament without the roof. I don't know about the lights too. Rolandd Rtaggos doesn't have them.

I hate the HYPE.

Rain can be anywhere. And roof is not of much help in terms of schedule. You can't have a roof over all courts. And being able to have one match played when it is 10 that are supposed to be played doesn't help much in terms of schedule. It does help in terms TV coverage ( which I really don't care about ) and in terms of nullifying the spectators tickets by forcing spectators to watch that one and only match while they might have come to see another match. And rain happens everywhere. At least the Brits, unlike US Open morons, have the tarps and doesn't take 24 hours of combined slave labour to dry up every court.

Anything else is OK. Just two things really stink - People's Sunday and no lights. Even for the latter I am not sure how would lights work with grasscourts.

I don't see why anyone who posts here would pick prize money unless they play at Wimbledon! :confused: Also, the women honestly don't deserve the same money because they don't play as many sets!

This one only BBC Viewers will understand. But I hate Tim Henman all the bloody time. It is all they ever really talk about it drives you mad. Also Greg wife Lucy needs to get back being a tennis player wife and stop doing all the god alwful interviews. And that Weaterman this year is just the most unfunniest person ever. "I think it 5 2 to the wather man now Sue." ha ha
And the way John Mac never lets anyone eles get a word in egde was. And the way they ask every person If Tim will win Wimbledon this year, and you know they all want to answer no.
And the way John Barrent start going made crazy and saying this is one of the best matches he has ever seen nearly all the time.
And this happen at all the Grandslams but when the umpire ask people to turn off there mobil phone people start clapping. Why are you Clapping
And Sue Barker Laughting at her guest for no reason at all. Why are you laughting what they said is not funny.
Yep that just about it

They could get 2 more matches in on Centre and Court 1 if they started much earlier...say 10am? :shrug: It makes no sense to start at 1pm with such a back log... :mad:

lol, so true.

what really annoys me is that they talk about Henman all the bloody time, then they find some space for Roddick, Hewitt and S.Williams and no-one else!!! show some respect to some of the other top players please.

i hate the surface, but thats something i've stated on here before, so not gonna go through it again....

8/10

Everything except prize money (more play deserves more money) and serve-and-volley (I generally don't support players that use this tactic but I respect and admire it and still enjoy watching the contrast between attacking players and counter-punchers).

I love Sue :hearts:

Henmania is just vile though - its relentless. The way Sue and the others completely drool over him just makes you want to vomit on your screen - and its getting worse. They refer to him in EVERY interview now.

They also have picked up an annoying habit of talking about the England football team to the players, who look as if they couldn't care less.
