IS IT TRUE that Wimbledon hasn’t seen this much rain since, when, the year 1982? That’s 25 years ago. Unbelievable flooding. But true. That’s why everyone should watch Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” to realize that the world climate is in havoc. Isn’t it funny: the most revered tennis tournament in the world is asked by Mother Nature to pause, start, stop, re-start, pause, stop, start… again and again these past two weeks? Thank God the British are finishing, by 2009, a retractable roof on Centre Court. Just like the Australian Open, it will be open-air–until the rains pour then the roof closes. Good! This way we can continue watching uninterrupted live TV coverage. Read this Wimbledon rain Q & A by one of my favorite tennis scribes, Jon Wertheim (Sports Illustrated).
