USO putting mics in players boxes in Ashe Stadium

The USTA put out a press release today announcing "new programming and fan enhancements" for the US Open this year. Buried in the middle of it, I noticed this:
Quote:
Microphones in the Players Boxes: For the first time, microphones have been installed in the player boxes in Arthur Ashe Stadium, which will help viewers get even closer to the emotion and drama of the US Open by adding the perspective of the players’ guests as matches unfold.
Has this ever been done before? I can't think of any other time. I wonder what the players think about this move.

My feelings are mixed -- sure, viewers will be able to know if there is illegal coaching, but are we going to have to listen to clips of Mirka snapping her gum?

Re: USO putting mics in players boxes in Ashe Stadium

Having mics in the players boxes is not a good idea at all.

Re: USO putting mics in players boxes in Ashe Stadium

It's an interesting idea....I imagine they'll only be replaying interesting comments from the box and that's about it. It's not like they're gonna send it to the box after every point and listen in.

Quote:
Special Opening Night Ceremony: A ceremony celebrating those who "Dream, Succeed and Inspire" will feature four-time US Open champion Martina Navratilova, fan-favorite James Blake and reigning US Open Wheelchair singles and doubles champion Esther Vergeer. The special ceremony in Arthur Ashe Stadium will be hosted by ABC News’ Christiane Amanpour and will feature a special musical performance by Grammy winner Gloria Estefan. The ceremony will be televised live on ESPN2.
Is this the best the can do for an MC?
