    He asked me what if - reported speedh

    - On Saturday I'll go to the club and play some tennis.
    - What if it rains?
    I told my friend I would go to the club. He asked me what if it rained.

    Is this sentence grammatically correct?

    Re: He asked me what if - reported speedh

    It's OK if you change it to direct speech (and change the tense).
    He asked me, "What if it rains?"

    If you want to keep reported speech, use:
    He asked me what would happen/what we would do if it rained.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
