Stupid Us Open

Why doesn't the Us Open just put a rain cover over the courts when it rains instead of letting it rain and then wiping them up? This would save alot of time and effort.

Maybe they want to be different?

AO - Retractable Roof
FO - It hardly rains.
Wimby - Covers
US - Mop the floor

Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

A poster at menstennisforums said that it was because of condensation.

That's the way it is in America. If you have lots of cheap workforce, no need for roof/covers etc
