I'm watching the ATP Masters Paris 2011 on TV. I hear music playing during points and long loudspeaker announcements going on during points. I don't remember this being done at any other tourney. It must be annoying to the players. It is annoying to me as a viewer. Anybody know if this really happening at the match and why it is allowed?

It's coming from adjacent courts when other matches are about to start. It's not being played during the matches themselves it's just that it's audible to everyone since it's an indoor tournament.

Its very freaking annoying. Don't know what the torunament directors are thinking allowing that. Stupid stupid.

No music during the points or any annoucement from the speaker. There's only music for the show when players are going on the court.

I think the sound's coming from the commentators booth which is located in the center court arena. When they're showing a court 2 match on TV you can hear the sound from center court through the mic of the commentators because the commentators commenting on tv footage.

I might be wrong though...

I notice it most when TV shows a match where it seems like some netting is between the TV camera and the court, like during the Ferrer_Dolgo match. I guess that was a secondary court or something. The Fish_Monaco match is quiet. Fish's 2hb is amazing btw.
