I dunno, the support for Ward was pretty great last year when he was beating the likes of Querrey and in particular against Mannarino.

Yes on court no 1 where you tend to get more of the tennis fans not the toffs.

When they re-ran the Queens' final from last year on Eurosport this afternoon, I couldn't understand why the crowd were so noisy and pro-Andy - quite un-Queens like.  Then I remembered that the final was held over to the Monday and they let all and sundry in for £10 a ticket - explained it all.  Let's hope they have another 'Peoples' Monday' this year - it was a great atmosphere!!

If the long-range forecast is to be believed, a People's Tuesday might be on the cards!

This rain had better do one by the time Wimbledon comes round!

Roof n' that.

Rain at Wimbledon would probably be good for Murray's chances. He would be on Centre Court for the majority of his matches.

The bad weather is all to do with the Jet Stream (a narrow band of very strong winds about 6 miles above the Earth's surface) which is at present flowing above the Channel when, at this time of year, it should be to the north of Scotland.  Until it shifts we'll have to learn to live with these unsettled conditions, and unfortunately there seems to be no sign of it doing so before the end of June at the earliest.

Yes Wimbledon now has a roof, but they've managed to cope with wet conditions in the past when they didn't have one.  The positive side, apart from Andy's matches, is that we could have yet another "Peoples' Sunday".

Always remember the 2001 final atmosphere. Big Goran winning the title, magical stuff.

Hope for some play at Queens tomorrow! Forecast to be cloudy in the afternoon but no rain apparently.

Definitely one of the best Wimbledon finals ever, but I think it was that rain-drenched tournament which finally convinced the powers-that-be at SW19 that perhaps it was time a roof was seriously considered.  Meanwhile I understand that RG hopes to have a roof by 2017.

Thank goodness for some common sense with the scheduling, but then we Brits should be experts at juggling with the weather by now!

Meanwhile RG's Referee is being criticised for not starting the final at 1 pm when the weather was fine and he knew rain was forecast.  However that meant it would start far too early for American audiences who the Great God TV has to accommodate ... Whistle

I get all nostalgic when I see grass and rain.
Makes me think of Cliff Richard..
Funniest thing about this vid is watching all the stiffies in the background..but I do remember this moment live. The weather was so shitty that they came and asked Cliffy old chap if he wouldn't mind singing a few to keep the home fires burning.
And good old Cliffy obliged, and imho gave a stellar performance. I can't even remember who was playing tennis.. qf?

Look out for Pam Shriver far left in her days before schmoozin' with Mirka Fed..... and Ginny Wade in her days before shiittin' on our Andy.

I care not for centre court as I'm not on it :p it's my only holiday this year and I'm hoping the weather will be awesome like it has been everytime I've been there.

Camp out for tickets you big moonbiscuit.

I still haven't seen Murray at Wimbledon, I was cruelly denied last year. Will need to go next year!
