The Federer-Nadal semifinal had half the seats empty. Federer-Nadal!Tickets were sold out. If people didn't bother showing, it's because they didn't want to see Barty-Vondrousova :shrug:
That's an unnecessary misrepresentation of the picture. That the picture was taken at the men's semi reveals a lot about the RG crowd - even a five setter between Novak and Thiem struggled to get people to show up. People are using low attendance as evidence of the weakness of the WTA when in actual fact this affected the ATP as well.It’s RG I’m shitting on, not women’s tennis :lol: I loved this year’s semi final line up :hearts:
The photo was taken during the Djokovic match but the red sleeves were still visible during the women’s final (ya know, because it was played on the same day)
The stadium was full. Stop lying.The Federer-Nadal semifinal had half the seats empty. Federer-Nadal!
The people who had access to the end of Thiem-Djokovic are the people who bought tickets for the women's final. And it was supposed to begin at 3pm that day. So yeah, there was already a lot of people in the stadium for an unscheduled early match.That's an unnecessary misrepresentation of the picture. That the picture was taken at the men's semi reveals a lot about the RG crowd - even a five setter between Novak and Thiem struggled to get people to show up.
That was only to start the match. They were full by the end of the first set, moving forward, and stayed that way. You should know that if you watched the match. But I guess, you didn't?The Federer-Nadal semifinal had half the seats empty. Federer-Nadal!
It couldn't have had anything to do with the bizarre decisions of the FO organization, or the weather. Nope, clearly this indicates that the world is utterly bored of the old players' ATP, no one cares about these matches any more.
Sorry, I was wrong. I honestly had the wrong impression in my memory.The security check to enter RG has gotten way more important since 2016, for obvious reasons. It surprises a lot of people who think coming up 20 minutes before is enough. That's why the main courts can be empty early on. That and the non tennis fans guests still being at lunch.
3rd court, 2 other semifinals going on at the same time (or can be expected to) and early hour. And the main court SF was Nadal-Federer, any match played against that event would take a hit.Look at how Wimbledon is affected every every year, but the tickets are sold out months before and even the tiniest court is packed.
Then again, Djokovic-Thiem were women's F ticket holders, it is jsut the two did not finish their match the previous day.That was at the Djokovic vs Thiem match. Why are you going out of your way to shit on women's tennis? Are you in the wrong forum?
And still the worst slam by a mile. You are french thats explain why you are like that.That's why we fought for 10 years to get the Olympics.France just does not care about sport. It's not their fault.
Djoker.Thiem match was bad too, although it was only a continuation.
RG should move to another country.
Or why we host big events all the time.
