I guess so, although if I got to choose again I would still choose to sit on that spot.
I think overall even on the side view for some reason I'm just not really hearing the sound of the ball that much, maybe because my ears were blocked yesterday morning for a relatively long time until late last night. Yes, it was very annoying.
I much prefer the bigger showcourts by the way because they aren't blocked by shade covers and umpire seats.
Vodafone Arena is very nice although there was an annoying lady sitting next to me that told me not to talk on my mobile phone, even though they were only in their warm-up.
