Yeah that's weird :lol: But i think you can't "dry" grass without "broke" it and it would take hours.

But indeed, it's weird :tape:

Ridiculous, isn't it? It usually takes 30-60 minutes from the time it stops raining to actually resume play, and they're lucky to get in more than a game or two before it rains again. GO TO THE HOME DEPOT AND BUY SOME TARP, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!! :mad:

You wouldnt think it so funny if it were little blond babies dying every minute


You're backfiring that to yourself. TBE was making fun of your Somalia Open remark.

Actually I donīt think this is a stupid question...I mean of course grass has to be covered during rain fall, however it implicates the more interesting question why hardcourt tourneys donīt do it. Of course a hardcourt is much easier to dry than grass but if they had a cover it wouldnīt take them that long to dry it again with towels and hair-dryers.

Iīve actually once asked an event guy from the US Open and he couldnīt come up with a clear answer so Iīd like to know it too. Maybe they think itīs too much work?!?
