Just wondering since once again in Madrid (as was the case indoors) they have the "safety netting" up like the tennis players are hitting foul balls or something. Same thing in the rest of the European indoor season - Paris etc. I meant to throw this out there earlier in the week when I first saw it but just remembered. Just wondering what the reason is? Anyone know? I'm been to plenty of pro events with seating just the same here in the states and other parts of the world - and never run into this type of thing. Just curious if it's an insurance thing or something. I would think it would really be annoying for the live spectator and I'm sure for getting camera shots for TV - even though they often shoot through it. Just seems strange to me and something I haven't really seen other places. Let me know. And of course just kidding with the thread title - no offense to our euro spending friends.
