Rain disrupts Roger lead

26.06.2006 | Tennis

The 2006 Wimbledon Championships began with rain. Two interruptions because of showers meant only a half hour of tennis on the tournament's first day, with no matches completed, 17 suspended and 47 postponed.

 

Roger began his campaign for a fourth title in sparkling form against Richard Gasquet on Centre Court, firing an ace on the opening point. He then broke the French teenager at the first opportunity and played some sublime tennis on his way to a 6-3 1-2 lead. But the rain came after 35 minutes and the players will now return on Tuesday.

When it rain, it pours, like tears or victory. Have no fear, the rain nurtures the grass, and so is Wimbledon, undeniably your turf. We have to wait though, but I believe you can whack all your opponents with style, determination, patience, and grace un

Impressive play for the first round Roger. If u keep ur game at that level no one can touch u this year as well and u'll get a step closer to the 5 consecutive Wimbledons that Borg holds.
If Henman does get thru to the 2nd round i don't think he can tro
