Roland Garros & Wimbledon

Those two slams say "Mrs, Ms, or Miss" when announcing games. How come they don't for the OZ and US OPENS? Or why not "Mr" for the men?

Re: Roland Garros & Wimbledon

I've heard some European umpires say Miss before in the US and Australian Opens. and this was before the shot spot days too.

Re: Roland Garros & Wimbledon

Calling them 'Miss' is so not necessary IMO. Who cares?

I think it's really cute, actually. In French I find it endearing While watching Roland Garros matches, I'd often repeat the score because I found it so cool

Re: Roland Garros & Wimbledon

I like it, especially at Wimbledon. Because I think the tradition is one of its better assests.

Re: Roland Garros & Wimbledon

It's Ok for Wimby - it's tradition. Guess French Open want to do it, but no other tourneys seem to do it anyway.
