Remember that over-hyped movie, Midnight In Paris? Every single hipster I know loved it. I hated it. Anyway, throughout the movie Owen Wilson is always going on about how Paris is better in the rain. More romantic, or something. At the end of the film him and his new girl walk through Paris in the rain. This is basically all I took from the film.
Obviously Owen Wilson's character had never tried to attend Roland Garros in the rain. For a tennis fan, Paris is infinitely sweeter when the sun is shining on sweaty tennis players running around a clay court. Yesterday, however, fans were stuck waiting and waiting and waiting as Paris bucketed down rain for four hours.
