At Wimbledon With Marcia Frost...
Saturday, June 30th
For a brief hour, the rain stopped today and the matches resumed. I had a plan to watch the end of the fifth set of the Amer Delic/Bobby Reynolds doubles match, catch some of Rajeev Ram and doubles partner Harel Levy, sit through the end of Scott Lipsky & David Martin's match, and then spend the rest of the day with the juniors. Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not agree with my plan and, for that matter, neither did Amer & Bobby.
None of the junior matches even made it to the court today. I went over to the junior lounge for a bit. It was rather crowded, but I did spend a couple minutes each with Melanie Oudin, Gail Brodsky and Donald Young. Though all were frustrated with the rain, they've been through this many times before and have learned to take it in stride. I was surprised how small the lounge was, but very impressed with the "Junior Championship Honor Roll" on the wall.
Tomorrow -- the middle Sunday -- is a day off from play. I'm not sure exactly what people do with "a day off" during a tournament, however, I have a number of people who have offered to show me so I think I'm going to give it a try and see a bit of London!
