Put two Britons within shouting distance of each other, and they will begin to discuss the weather as if there was something new, unusual and vastly interesting about habitual rain. Day after day, television forecasters here point to milky aerial maps and predict more showers. Taxi drivers turn on their windshield wipers and wax nostalgic about sunnier times, like grandmothers recalling an age when children had good manners.

When it rains, England scores.

If the rain and the current pace of play continue, Wimbledon 1991 will end in snow and cold in December. Strawberries and cream will become strawberries and ice cream. Alan Mills, head referee and the man entrusted with scheduling matches, said late Wednesday that the situation "is not quite critical but getting close." Despite Monday's total washout and the long rain delays Tuesday and Wednesday, Mills still expects the tournament to finish on time this year.

Chacha Namdar is a 28-year-old soccer player from Tehran, Iran. His roommate, and teammate, on the San Diego Sockers professional indoor soccer team is Waad Hirmez, 25, from Baghdad, Iraq. Iran and Iraq are at war. Hirmez heard recently that several of his relatives had been killed by Iranian soldiers. Earlier, five of his friends were killed. He doesn't blame Iran, he said. He simply sees it as the nature of war--a war he and Namdar never talk about.
