    As you of course know, Wimbledon starts Monday, but is this traditionally wet event (I have no evidence at all for that, just it seems like it!) going to be wet or dry?

    The vast majority of games played through the years have been dry actually, you just remember the stoppages.

     

    Given the draw however i need a front on QF day as it's the only chance Fed has of deposing Nadal quickly enough with the roof closed and still have enough to energy to take Murray.

    If he reaches the final then he's actually the marginal favourate this year (and i'm not a Murray lover). His big problem is being crushed by Nadal in the SF or 50/50 against Fed.

    Week 1 is looking pretty dry, week 2 too far away to tell.

    I would like a washout on Wed 3rd July, so I can see all 4 quarter finals, rather than just 2, they should put all 4 quarters, mens and womens on centre court, not 2 on court 1

    The annual Wimbledon forecast and rain radar is now up and running:

    A black box appears over the radar, presumably an advert failing to load for me.

    A box will appear while the animation for the radar loads but that should clear very quickly, which browser are you using?

    Wimbledon gets under way at the All England club in London on Monday, with all eyes on which of the main protagonists can best negotiate the grass, weather and their rivals to emerge as the champion.

    Jo is going to be updating her forecast on the wimbledon page daily, alongside the local forecast and radar.

    There is some patchy rain in the vicinity but I'd have thought that even if it passes through it'll not be enough to cause any problems.

    Looks set for another rain free day today with partial cloud clearing through the day, but returning towards the end of the afternoon?

    The most disrupted Wimbledon championships were apparently in 1922:

     

    Wimbledon 1922: Unseen photos show brollies, queues ... and fur coats

     

    Long queues of spectators and a stadium full of umbrellas — these historic and previously unseen photographs of the Wimbledon Championships show not much has changed.

     

    The black and white images, from 1922, show fans prepared to stand in line for hours for the chance to glimpse the sporting heroes of the day. Of course, Centre Court fans now have a multi-million-pound retractable roof to shelter under — but elsewhere on the grounds they must suffer London’s inclement weather just as they did all those years ago.
     
    The rare photographs are published in a new book chronicling the early years of tennis and the life of George Hillyard, one of the game’s most influential figures and the man responsible for moving the Championships to its present venue. More than 200 photographs appear in the book, by professional tennis coach Bruce Tarran. One shows  Suzanne Lenglen of France turning up for the final against Molla Mallory wearing a fur coat.
     
    The book describes how in 1887 Hillyard, aged 23, married Wimbledon Ladies champion Blanche Bingley and  influenced the world of tennis for the next 40 years. He won Olympic doubles gold at the London Games in 1908 and helped found the Lawn Tennis Association, wresting power over the game from The All England Club

     I think that the crowd and players at Wimbledon will be happy enough this year - without either being drenched and shivering in the sort of weather we had last summer (or in 1922!) or baking and dehydrating in a cauldron of heat at the other extreme. If I was going it would make my wardrobe planning much easier tooPosted Image No fur coat required anyway!

    Looks largely like there will be continuous play today, with a very low chance of an isolated shower later in the afternoon.
