Dear Flushing Meadows: GET A FUCKING ROOF

September 12, 2009

I cannot believe what has happened over the last two days. Having known of the torrential rain New York City wa about to experience yesterday and today, the super intelligent forward-thinking tournament organisers prepared for it in the best possible way they could think of.

They did nothing.

Absolutely nothing. They made no effort to prepare for the rain, completely in denial it would even happen. I imagine the weather forecasters in New York are pretty damn technologically advanced. When they say there is going to be rain on Friday afternoon, they clearly  mean it. I am pretty sure there is a reason we have weather forecasts. TO PREPARE.

On Friday, the US Open organisers took a risk and lost miserably. Today they have taken another risk. Although it is currently not raining in New York City, they are going to wait until 8pm to get the girls’ semi finals underway.

Guess what is forecast for tonight?

RAIN.

They seem to be playing a very Ernests Gulbis like game with the weather at the moment. High risk, little reward. Perhaps during these rain delays they could be doing something productive instead of tweeting me to ‘hang tight’ .
I have a good idea,

DESIGN A ROOF.
