Few tiny gripes about IW !!!

#1
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 also like Cinny but its so damn far with the Airplane, then the long drive from Airport to MASON and plus you have like a 40 percent chance of being rained out lol

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.

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...

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.
