Wimbledon would normally be starting tomorrow. Some people actually questioned the decision to call it off as being too early. They'll be lucky to get next years tournament in.

Not a groundbreaking thing to say, but ****ing hell Evans wasted so many years acting the absolute tit. He was never going to challenge the elite for slams but if he had a brain he could have won a few 250 events here and their.


Heck worse players than him have had one-off runs past quarter final stages in slams.

I've watched some tennis last few weeks, some decent stuff in America with Keys, Kenin etc playing, didn't find the lack of crowds an issue but heh when you watch test cricket you get used to it.:laugh:

Wimbledon are paying out First Round loser prize money to everyone who would have qualified for the tournament based on the rankings. A bit of a life line to those at the bottom end of the scale.

From next summer (assuming Wimbledon takes place) they'll be seeding strictly by the rankings instead of making up their own based on grass court performance in the past. The courts now are so slow that the days of the grass court specialist are long gone, so I think it's a good idea.

Do you know why it's so slow now? Is it deliberate or something else?
