Rainy Warsaw chatting thread



Seriously, organization is great. There is centre court and two additional show courts. However court 2 is not used because there is a big hole inside. So matches were resheduled to one of training courts. Supposing there were four training courts, two of them were occupied by matches. Court 6 was full of water as well so there was only one court for players today. Of course I don't have to add Warsaw is the slowest clay of WTA - so slushy. Players struggled with bad bounces - sometimes even with returning an opponent's serve. They had to fix all those roughnesses with their own shoes.

I don't understand why they are not forced to cancel the tourny

1 in 20 people has been a victim of crime. Which means that 19 out of 20 people are criminals.

Re: This is how centre court in Warsaw looked today

I can say that at the beginning of the first day there were no bodyguards in front of players' area so I took the chance, entered and stalked the players. Just at afternoon some guy asked me: "Do you have an ID?" Unfortunately the draw ceremony was in this exclusive area so I couldn't enter today.
