Re: Empty courts
Considering that women's tennis doesn't do that great normally in attendance outside of late round slam matches, I don't think it's a big shock. Especially not when you consider that the weather over there has been horrible for the first few days. Tennis deosn't have a long tradition in the Olympics. Most casual Olympics fans follow the marquee sports like T&F, swimming and gymnastics. The Chinese have a big history in diving and table tennis, so I imagine those venues will be packed to the gills as well. Outside of that....?
Maybe it will pick up later in the tournament.
