It responds slow and no logic.
The USTA main website really has gotton worse. The whole thing is ripe for and needs a complete overhaul. Their mobile web app also sadly has holes in it.
Definitely could use some improvements to their website.
This week may be worse than average with all big tournaments going on and massive data updates. But they screwed it up to feed us more ads. If I am already paying for tennislink almost $4 per transaction I do not want to see Groupon ads. This "non-profit" corporation really wants to have it both ways. Yahoo can only dream about this business model.
That's a great one! But loading the draws for the tournaments takes quite sometime and I just don't like it in general.
Yeah, that's how this stuff goes. Advertising in general is out of control. Remember cable TV when it was new? You paid a monthly fee and were free of ads for the most part. Then came the territory monopolies, then the ads every half-hour, then every 15 minutes, then every 10-12 minutes, now DURING THE PROGRAMS at the bottom of the screen, which really pi@#$es me off. I know it's for profit, but geez, during the program!? It's gotten out of hand.
Cable TV at least pays for content, USTA does not. Players create "content" for Tennislink for free.
The new website is really bad and not user friendly at all. Hard to pull up draws, player history, etc. Wish we could file a petition to bring the old format back.
I hate to point out the obvious, but complaining on this website doesn't help the USTA identify the problem. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know about the speed issues. They already know about it, however it doesn't hurt for them to know that it's a widespread issue and not something limited to a few users.
