Rain stops play

Rain can change matches. It can change tennis history.

If it hadn't been for the rain Agassi would not have won the French and completed his career slam. And if it wasn't for the rain Henman would have probably made it to the final of Wimbledon in 2001, who knows he may even have won it.

So despite being hugely impressed with Murray today, I've a horrible feeling Rafa may come out tomorrow and win it in five. Watch this space...

Hey STeve - I apologize if you get two similar comments from me - I'm having internet probs and had to resend.

I just wanted to say that I'm also nervous for Andy! That rain delay will no doubt be a blessing for Rafa, who get's a "do-over" while Andy stays awake all night worrying about letting his lead slip away. Beating nadal twice, two days in a row, is a tough task, I think. But I'm pulling for him to get through, for what very little it's worth.
