That white thing that everyone was using...
Was that some kind of headphones to listen to the radio of the tournament?

I think it was to listen to the match commentators

but it linked to some kind of radio frequency?

12-05-2009, 02:04 PM
Right. You could hear the commentators on the frequency.

Mine was tuned into Gwen and Gavin's box.

That would be the American Express radio. You can only get it if you have an amex. In the mourning it tunes you into the tennis channel commentary. As soon as espn2 started there braodcast your radio tuned into them. Also, when you did no here commentating amex would tell you what the scores and scheduals of the outside courts were. The best part however, was during changeovers in the night session amex would interview people and you could here the interview in your radio. I was interviewed during Venus' match against Dushavina
