Re: "Sold out" games, empty seats
i am unsure but the question was in my mind too. U couldn't get them off of ticketmaster and yes you are right there were frickin hundreds/thousands of empty seats in ashe on a daily basis, night matches were a little fuller. I sat in AA for the womens dbles semi, moved down to the middle tier (couldnt get in the lower tier, because of security-altho there were trillions of seats), thought it would pack in a little for the mxd final, no, still most of the top tiers were EMPTY, federer, 3rd match on, admittedly more people flocked in, but still i was front row middle section with a ton of seats clear around me and still all top tier wide open.
So i reckon it was a marketting ploy. Odd though admittedly!
