Rain and more rain at Wimbledon

With the countless rain disruptions at Wimbledon this year, it has become nearly impossible to follow exactly what is happening in the tournament.

Take for example Rafael Nadal's third round match against Robin Soderling. The match started on Saturday and is scheduled to hopefully finish on Wednesday and that's four days since the match started.

Roger Federer was fortunate in that he got a bye in the fourth round when Tommy Haas pulled out because of injury.

I think all grand slam tournaments must have a roof on at least one of the courts to avoid what is happening at Wimbledon at the moment. Similar problems were witness at the start of the French Open but then it was alright for the rest of the tournament. The whole tournament becomes a joke with some players finishing third round matches whilst others are starting quarter final matches.

Meanwhile Wayne Arthurs run was stopped by Jonas Bjorkman in straight sets. Having enjoyed two very good rounds earlier, the third one proved to be too much for him and therefore an easy win for Bjorkman.

At least Lleyton Hewitt is still there after he won his match again Guillermo Canas.
