I hate middle Sunday. First, why would the tournament that generally has the most rain take an entire day off? It makes no sense to me, but then, it's Wimbledon--say no more. Beyond that, most people don't go to work on Sunday, which makes it a perfect day to watch tennis, except there isn't any to watch.

Since all of the women's round of 16 matches are played on Monday and the women's quarterfinals are played the next day, the middle Sunday "rest" really doesn't mean much for the WTA side of the competition.
Here are some things you can do on middle Sunday:
Celebrate Amelie Mauresmo's birthday by re-living a great moment from 2006 (and my greatest Wimbledon final moment as a viewer)

Learn about the Venus Rosewater dish.
Do my favorite thing, and listen to the Evonne Goolagong song!
Watch Goolagong and Evert play the final in 1976.
