Anyone Else Noticed in Delpotro Match Tonight

#1


the heavily strapped scary looking policeman! Didn't catch the right moment but he looked like he meant biniss.

In plain sight too of the tv cameras. I thought usually the security was in the back, out of view.

Ok, that was all I had.

This is strange; was there a rumoured threat or something or is that some new contribution to the development of tennis as a spectators' sport in the USA?

Is that normal for any other sport there?

:cool:

I have never missed Cinci for the last ten years and have been to a few other tournaments as well. Even been to Flushing Meadows twice. Have never seen a strapped police officer on court like that. It is usually the security at entry check points or in the back during matches, never where tv cameras could see them. And it is usually not police uniformed guys with visible guns like this, at least in my experience

Yeah this was a bit weird.

Isn't it better, when it is someone who is good at what he does?

A kind of like how the rich paid to experienced executioners to severe them with one blow, so that they don't suffer.

:cool:
Nah, Roddick winning matches was always better than him losing matches.

I always thought it would be kinda cool if he played his last match vs Fed, but he landed in Djoko's quarter.

Andy already had received his farewell present from Federer by that time, so I thought that falling to him again in the end would have been a "lesser" (for their rivalry) way to go.

They always have an on court police officer at that tournament. Could be because of the "best seat in the house" tickets you can buy. You can sit right on the court, in lounge chairs. You are right with the players. The cop is there for the player security. They are great seats, btw. I highly recommend it. Bought them one year. Loved it

Brazil is now under a new, much 'tougher' President. Jair Bolsonaro is their equivalent to Trump.

It's also a hella dangerous country.

So it could either be aggressive posturing by the new regime. Or simply good business.

I think there was some psycho threatening Delpo before the match. probably some crazy anti argentine nutcake ??

Nice! At Cinci, you see cops walking the grounds but never on court like this so it stood out to me. I've been to a few Challengers as well and it was the same. Perhaps like you said, it could be this tournament specific due to seating.

Seriously Brazil is a very dangerous place but DelRay loves DelPo :)

Totalitarian State Agenda is underway everywhere, we have to get used to heavily clad Police and UN dorks
to keep us safe from the treacherous Banksters plans.
