Stanford is a great host. Outstanding. Only rained 15 minutes the entire tournament, court cleaned in 15 more minutes. 1 am was because of long matches, no rain that day. But if there is a So Cal that can host, it should bid for them.
Their first hosting of the mens/womens combo was awful... and it rained ... and the players room even flooded.
Stanford had not arranged the promised indoor courts, they were an hour away, and I know folks that watched matches at 1am after crawling through rainy SF traffic.
Oh, and somehow Stanford hospitality was (nor is it ever) what they promised the other athletes.
BUT, when they won after being # 2 seeds, they ran inside and then all came out wearing NO RESPECT Nike tshirts... just to give a finger to the NCAA.
Stanford is .................................................. ....
Again, wrong. It was because of the first time that Stanford hosted the combined men and women, that I started following college tennis. I remember great weather, at Palo Alto. If I remember correctly there were evening mens matches at SFTC, with Baylor, Notre Dame, and two other teams.
Weston was doing SFTC then, and it truly extended itself to make it a good experience for the player. SFTC is more corporate now, and to evaluate honestly, if matches are going to need to be moved to SFTC, it will be evening matches. It would be impossible to block out the entire courts from the membership during the day. SFTC tends to capacity on weekend morning, ..
You just have a gripe, that you don't want to let go of, or let facts get in the way of enjoying. The monthly rainfall averages for Palo Alto are very low. I hope that Long Beach starts to compete to make it into the round of 16, so that you could come yourself, and appreciate the benefits of a West Coast location. Also, to drive from Stanford to SFTC, you take 280, and would have very little crawling street traffic.
