Tennis Australia has a zero tolerance policy on illegal gambling, match fixing & the communication of sensitive information which may affect the outcome of a match and will investigate all reported instances.
The use of laptops is prohibited in spectator viewing areas of all tournament courts without the prior authorisation from Tennis Australia Management.
So, basically, the only people that would have laptops in the arena would be the tennis writers. What would happen if one of those odd bets turned up during one of those matches? Would the writers then be the prime suspects?
Wait.. this just in... Australian Open to place "Cone of Silence" over courts to prevent communication with the outside world.
What's to stop people from using information gleaned from the practice courts? If a player is favoring a leg or shoulder, or constantly rubbing a sore joint, that could influence bettors. Or will fans be banned from observing practice sessions too? Will there be "information police" patrolling the grounds to intercept questions? Will someone who yells "Hey, Serena, how are you feeling?" be ushered off by security and placed in confinement until after her match? Oops, better not give them ideas.
