View Full Version : Do Open officials have their heads up their ass, or WHAT?!

Can someone PLEASE tell me why the hell they are playing one fricking match tonight (Roddick vs. Malisse)? They have Louis Armstrong, Granstand, and courts 7 and 11 all have partial stadium seating...WHY AREN'T THEY PLAYING MATCHES ON THOSE COURTS NOW?!

But poor Mary, Anastacia, Ai, and Francesca are going to have to play tomorrow and the winners have to play again tomorrow night!

Doesn't anyone else see the f***kin stupidity in this or am I not seeing something?!?!?! I am so mad right now I can barely write or think straight!!!!

good for mary though:) and i remember read a report said the players won't play two matches in one day. if it is true~

Okay...now I am really pissed. It'r raining....

So...we get to watch Andy place a set and a half only to be delayed again. Lets see...Ai Sugiyama won the first set and was serving at 5-4 in the second. Even if she lost the set, they could have finished that match in the time we got to watch whiney Andy play!!! And same goes for Mary Pierce!!! ARGH!!!! %$#@@!(&%##!@

KindaNice -- all those courts do have seating, but they are all still wet since there's only ONE CREW OF DRYERS :rolleyes:

Now the American bias has become blatant. Brian Earley has shown what an asshole he really is. Frankly, I'm LMAO that every minute it rains, the USTA is losing a ton of money.

People can bitch as much as they want, but the us open organisers know much more than any of us to how to do a schedule.

They want all matches to start early tomorrow. The only way is by sending the players early the day before.

Uh-huh, that's why the schedule hasn't changed at all from today's. Wow, 11 am on Thursday is so much earlier than 11 am on Wednesday! :eek:
