Today's matches likely to be played indoor

As of now, should rain persist tomorrow as well, today's matches will be played at at an indoor facility a few miles away from Foro Italico. There's been talk about this in the presser area cause organisers are not confident in tomorrow's weather given the forecast.

Hmm.. If this continues then I'm afraid that we won't see any matches today

They should of just cancelled today instead of wasting everybody's time. The weather forecast was clear, and it is mostly correct. Refund those Fed tickets.

That's what they get for jacking up the prices after Fed was in the draw.

Re: Today's matches likely to be played indoor

What will they do for ticket holders and TV coverage? Surely an indoor facility won't be able to house nearly as many spectators.

They should just hold until the rain passes, unfortunately, even if it means finishing the tournament a day late.

Re: Today's matches likely to be played indoor

How much are they charging to see Federer indoors? Think of the fields they had and the weather went nuts

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

This is amazing--in a GOOD way. Normally, these tourney bosses are so effing stupidly anal with their self-imposed slavery to "tradition" that they refuse to face reality instead of biting the bullet, accepting their losses and moving forward. My hat is off to them if they actually take this pragmatic step

Of course, they were SUPPOSED to have a functioning retractable roof on center court for this year's event, which would've allowed them to host the feature matches to a full crowd IF the organizers had gotten their act together

Re: Today's matches likely to be played indoor

the forecasts I have seen show no rain tomorrow. And if they're going to do indoors then why the hell have they waited all day.

SUPER question. Answer: They are such f--king sheep with their inside-the-box mentality that it took a near-disatrous situation bfore they even began THINKING about alternatives.

A more accurate forecast shows showers and space for some play, it's a matter of seeing how much can be squeezed in atm.

Given circumastances the indoor facility would have two of its courts covered by cameras I'm told by someone who works for Supertennis tv.
