What the hell is up with the new “ Tennis paradise “ logo “ ?? So many empty seats it was more like “Tennis purgatory “

Why can’t they upgrade the food ??? I had a chicken gyro and it was not fit for the Stalin gulags !!!

Who the hell picks the damn music ?? Why are 90 percent of the songs hip hop??
Can’t they play some zeppelin or Beatles

Empty seats? The grounds were freaking packed with people!

Most fans who purchased upper bowl nose bleed seats would rather skip the big stadium matches & watch their hero's on the practice court or some new young players on the smaller outside courts.

Hotels were cheap if you booked early.

I had a great burger at the place located by the big outdoor screen under court 1.

Also were the hell am I going to bump into Nick Bollettieri, Pat Cash & Caitlin Jenner all on the same day??

Most people under 50 enjoy Hip Hop.

Please stay home next year & leave more room for the real fans.

I think these are the reasons why I would go to Miami open instead. Great food at very good prices. and Hotels nearby are very reasonable like holiday inn. and women are hot and it is Party 24 hours a day.

Yeah what's up with people trying to make IW the 5th slam. Clearly it is a bad place to be. Just because zverev can't win a match does not mean it should be a slam.

I have toned it down , I think
Quite the opposite. Before you were sticking to O&E. Now you are in the GPPD. Thank God that you don't play tennis to intervene in the equipment and instruction sections. Unfortunately Fedace apparently plays, so he is pestering the threads there.

:cool:

It's not my style to say such things, but with you I can't resist.

Making humour out of those who died of hunger in Stalin's gulags is not kosher.

(And is not the word 'kosher' one of the Ur-forms of the term 'PC'?)
It is your style. PC police.

I'm under fifty, and hip hop sucks.

It's not limited to tennis, go to any sports event, particularly basketball and it's all hip hop but the actual attendees would likely not drop another dime in the jukebox as they don't want to hear no more.

Except of course for sir mixalot. Big butts should be the anthem for the WTA

its well known the OP is weird and bordering on worse at times, but i must agree that the stands have looked more empty than usual...

I stayed at Homewood suits at Cook st.
Rooms there are $160 a night. If you paid what you said you paid, then you were supremely ripped off. You also need to book early. Book next week for 2020 IW and get a room for $140.

Are you going to see Fed and Rafa today?

The music gripe I understand, though I wouldn't replace it with Zeppelin or the Beatles. The rest of your post is probably false and if not very subjective. It feels like the OP does this every year around this time and he's probably trolling to get a reaction. I'd love to be in IW right now. Looks like a beautiful place, yet I'm stuck here in a corner of the world where it barely gets above freezing until about April, and we got snow in June last year.
