I heard a commentator say today that the only covered courts at the US Open were being used as hospitality areas... is this true?

Even 'can't do a thing right' Wimbledon has indoor courts so during the downpours people can still hit a ball or two.

You did indeed.

Surely you don't think the actual players are more important than the corporate characters who never fill the seats they buy?

:rolleyes:

Well, at least the Open have lights on all courts so that there can be matches after 9pm

which isn't so great if you've been waiting around for 6 hours to play that match, without hitting a ball for 48 hours beforehand.

The Aussie open is truly the best grand slam for the players IMO......two courts with a roof, so there will always be play, and there won't be such terrible delays and backlogs of the draw....also indoor practice courts, and if i remember correctly from when i was down there, lights on the outside courts aswell! :)
