They currently had to suspend the Sharapova/Goerges match on Hisense because there is a very problematic dead spot on Hisense, near to the net. The umpire tested bouncing a ball on the spot and, not only did it not bounce, it appeared to get stuck to the surface! Very unusual.
This could be big (and very bad) news for the tournament. Unhappy fans, I predict.
I saw that. It was the strangest thing. Everyone seems perplexed by it. I have never seen anything like it. I wonder if they'll be able to fix it soon or if this will cause trouble throughout the whole tournament?
that just doesn't make sense lol, it doesn't bounce at all, it's crazy, never seen that before, and never thought I'd ever dream of it let alone see it. I don't understand what's causing it to not bounce at all. I could understand if it was a little dead but no bounce whatsoever, I don't like their chances of fixing it, not by today anyway for sure
Hit a drop shot on that patch and you got yourself a winner
I swear Goerges is trying to use it. She's hit a couple of awesome drop shots very close to the net. For one of them, Sharapova had to fumble through that spot on the court and I bet Goerges was hoping she'd injure her ankle or something.
