Gilles Simon ensured the weather remained a talking point on day four of Wimbledon as he threatened to sue umpire John Blom.
After the rain washed out large chunks of days two and three of the Championships, better conditions ensured a prompt start on Thursday.
But when drizzle passed over the All-England Club just after 1.30pm, Simon - on Court One against Grigor Dimitrov - was unhappy at having to play on.
At 40-30 down in the second game of the second set, he walked to his chair and exchanged words with Blom, clearly about the weather.
"I don't want to play, when it's raining, on grass. That's it," he was heard saying, before adding: "If I play and get injured, I will sue you and you will pay."
Dimitrov returned to his seat too but the weather soon passed over and the pair resumed their second-round clash.
