The Canadian Open used to be great until 2000, when Du Maurier not only sponsored the even but also managed it.
Du Maurier had its own marketing people and they made all the decisions. Tennis Canada's official were mere decorative figures (that's about what they are capable of).
When Du Maurier left, we had a whole bunch of old bored ladies directing the tournament, and they have no clue whatsoever, starting with the tournament director.
Today I went to the night session of the men's matches (I had free tickets), I could only see a set because it was rained out. The annoying part is that they could have finished the match if they weren't so damn stupid. They had people drying the outside courts and only 3 machines on centre court, finally somebody had a moment of clarity to got the damn machines on centre court, they wasted at least half an hour with that.
I mean, you don't need to be a rocket scientist, if no match is completed on Centre Court they have to refund the tickets, and no tv. If I was the tournament director I would get everyone, and I mean everyone drying the court, put 200 people to do it and you get it dried in no time, but that's too much for Stacey's little brain.
Unless they put someone with half a brain as tournament director, the tournament will keep falling in the players and crowd preferences, it's a shame but it's true. They need professional managers, not bored housewives with nothing better to do.
