Re: Should USO be stripped of Grand Slam Status?

They have the funds. They would just rather have the money be used for projects that no doubt make it easy to steal money.

And how the f--k does the USTA spend $250 million on developing players? It's not like they get paid. And it's expensive to play.

And I find it hard to believe that it costs $250 million to build a freakin roof. Get another estimate.

You sure you didn't leave out your main reason for this thread? A certain player from Mallorca doing well here?

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Re: Should USO be stripped of Grand Slam Status?

retractable roofs should be mandatory for all slams and masters 1000's.

What is the real game?
It is a game in which the heart is entertained,
the game in which you are entertained.
It is the game you will win.

The USO should keep its Grand Slam status to let the other organizers feel good about themselves.

Re: Should USO be stripped of Grand Slam Status?

CBS should tell USO that this is BS, 2 years in a roll they wasted the prime slot on Sunday because the final got rained out. How much they pay for the right for this event only to see USO can't deliver the final on Super Sunday? They should impose a penalty on USO. We all know that USO won't care what the players/fans say, but if the network tell them to do it, we'll see a roof within a year.

Re: Should USO be stripped of Grand Slam Status?

If they can build a retractable roof on Arthur Ashe Stadium, then I got no issues with it, but they don't, so I seriously think that the US Open is the biggest joke out of all the majors.

Forget about Roof. Where are the covers? Get the covers and you can avoid one hour long Drying procedure after rain.

Re: Should USO be stripped of Grand Slam Status?

Why the f**k don't they have covers for the courts? Just plain shoddy. I bet the stupid organisers throw in as many intangibles as possible into the mix in an effort to maintain the status of 'toughest major to win', and why not, when tennis is the last thing of concern here?

Yes, they should turn it into a 250 event.

Yeah, it should be moved to Winnipeg, so that Ty Dyllelo could get a main draw WC there.
