Do those who live outside of the US get the pre-match ceremony?

If so, what do you think of the singing of "God Bless America" by Carol King with background choir and march of the flag with marines?

Her voice was horrible and she was offbeat.

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

Re: Do those who live outside of the US get the pre-match ceremony?

1. I think it's a massive waste of money... does anybody really love these musical presentations?

2. I do think it comes across as jingoistic and self-serving, regardless of the intentions.

3. Who on earth chose Carol King to do this? She's an icon -- but this isn't suited to her strengths at all!

No - we get pre-match expert analysis from Annabel Croft.

Re: Do those who live outside of the US get the pre-match ceremony?

Yes, we do and I didn't enjoy it.

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

That's why US Open is the worst of all slams.
