    Tennis...Anyone?

    Is there a tennis thread?

    With the rain delay at the French Open, I thought I'd start a tennis thread.

    Nadal up one set and leads 5 - 3 over Djokovic in the second.

    Play is suspended.

    Nadal up 2 sets to none: 6 - 4, 6 - 3.

    But, Djokovic just broke Nadal in the third set: Djokovic leads 3 - 2 and has won three games in a row.


    Edit: Now 4 - 2 Djokovic in the third

    Edit: 5 - 2 Djokovic

    Re: Tennis...Anyone?

    Wow...Djokovic just won six games in a row to win the third set: 6 - 2.

    Nadal leads 6 - 4, 6 - 3, 2 - 6.

    What a turnaround!?!? We shall see...

    Another Rain Delay.

    Djokovic leads 2 - 1 in the fourth set.

    Nadal leads in the match 6 - 4, 6 - 3, 2 - 6.

    Djokovic will be serving when they return today or tomorrow.

    Rain destroyed Nadal. This would have been 3 sets easy for him if there were no rain.

    A dilemma for India's tennis federation:

    there is an Indian doubles team ranked # 26 in the world that wants to play together, except that India also has another doubles player ranked in the top 10.....and neither of the ones on the other team want him as a partner!

    Looks like the roof is being closed. Rain is coming down pretty good. So it's probably going to be an indoor championship from here on out.
