“1821: Nadal, I’ve noticed, has a problem with his shorts, in that they keep on getting stuck up his jacksie and he has to pull them out before every point. Not sure why he doesn’t just get a size up, he’s probably loaded.”

Soderling v Nadal as it happened

Wimbledon third round latest:

R SODERLING (Swe) 28 v R NADAL (Spa) 2

1610: There you go – brollies sprout like mushrooms in a dank cellar, and play has been suspended for rain. Rafa’s relieved. The silver lining to those clouds is that, if we fail to get any more play today, the spectators will get a 100% refund as we haven’t had a full hour’s play. By four minutes.

1606: Nadal approaches the umpo’s chair and seems to be saying that the court is dangerous as the surface is becoming wet. The blazered official waves him away, but dark clouds are looming.

1600: Rafa and Robin are knocking up on Centre Court, but there’s a bit of drizzle in the air again. There are downpours promised later in the day – in fact, any time now.

as a matter of fact, the official didn’t wave him away. He said: “can u please keep serving? I din’t get the order to cancel, yet” while waving his hand simulating a serve. He told Rafa they had to wait for the canceling order to arrive and while waiting they could keep on the warm-up. And Rafa did just that: Robin sat on his chair following his own warm-up and Rafa kept serving a few more balls and then went to his chair too. Then the canceling order finally arrived and…”that’s all folks”! Hope monday will bring some serious action….without rain if possible!
