    Ok, so, with the new cover, no more rained off' games. I bet that will not prove correct.

    The loser will say 'This is an Open Court tournament .....'

    Loser will lodge an appeal.

    It's only centre court that has a cover anyway, all the rest of the courts are still open air

    it ensures that no matter what the weather, there will be at least a few matches -- and ensures that weather won't disrupt the schedule during the final few days

    and ensures that when Federer and Nadal face off in the finals this year, rain delays won't be forcing them to play the final points in near darkness like last year

    which brings up the real question -- will Wimbledon or the French Open ever install lights?

    well....Murray would have home court advantage -- and after all those years of hoping Henman would do it, maybe this is the year someone from the UK wins it.

    But I suspect that this is sort of like waiting for the Cubs to win a World Series.

    I am not sure he will win it; but he's been playing so much better than Fed lately.

    Not really, but thats most likely because we are in the clay season. Federer has been playing better.
