Madrid 1000? Worst ever tourney of this kind!

Madrid in Europe!?

OK, it's nearly midnight.There is still (again!) no order of play for tomorrow - Wednesday!
This was happening the other days too, already!
Today there's no livescore for several hours!? (This is unliKely even for challengers nowadays.)
How many players complained already about surface...
Well I can carry on!
Over 3.000.000 € in prize fund.
Are you kidding me, worst event EVER of this kind!

Re: Madrid 1000? Worst ever tourney of this kind!

Well it is interesting. Media write about Madrid Masters because of blue clay like never before, Tiriac can only say : "Mission accomplished". What sells is good, baby.

Problems with livescore are rare and schedule was posted at normal time, so that´s no big deal.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Re: Madrid 1000? Worst ever tourney of this kind!

OOP has been out for hours and hours. their website is shit, we've knew that for years. All info needed is on the atp site anyway, I never visit tournament sites.

As for the livescores, they lost their internet, it's not their fault. Someone can lose their internet at any time, it happens, shit happens.

the only thing wrong is the garbage clay, which Monte Carlo has too

Look man, I ain't gonna defend thread title, but imagine a whole city without internet for several hours!?
In this particular case this "city" feels like the whole World as there are so many people intrested.
Now this situation was not even helped much with Twitter or anything similar which led certain people to provide false info.Probably highlight of the day was Berloq-Granollers match.

Re: Madrid 1000? Worst ever tourney of this kind!

Slams have really good webistes, masters often so-so; anyway, the official ATP site usually has all you need, no big deal

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: Madrid 1000? Worst ever tourney of this kind!

I think there has been a similar thread for the last 5 or 6 Masters. Apparently they are all equally atrocious and should be demoted.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

I'm sorry but they're not complete retards, if they lose their internet there is always somebody there who can use a smart phone or at worst they can phone up someone and make him give regular updates. How a tournament of this importance managed to completely lose contact with the exterior world for hours and hours is unbelievable. Their official site is a joke : is this not their fault either? The whole organization is terrible.

Madrid is truly bad though. When you see Nadal himself trying to skip a master 1000 on clay in Spain year after year you know something is going terribly wrong. All this is made worse by the retarded claims the tournament made that it was going to take RG's place as a slam when they started it.

Re: Madrid 1000? Worst ever tourney of this kind!

They said they changed the court colour to match the title sponsor. Fine. But now we have blue courts, aqua signage, red seats, a grey stadium and yellow schweppes fridges. Not to mention those disastrous yellow and red bows everywhere.

The entire experience is fucking ugly and bad feng shui.

I know their website is terrible. but a terrible website makes a tournament the worst of this kind? I don't even use tournament websites, all infor needed is always on the ATP site anyway so it's not a big deal.

As for losing contact they didn't. You could still watch 2 courts, betting sites had scores from a 3rd court. And we did get some updates.

It's not ideal but it's not the worst situation for someone in that case. It could have been worse.

Tiriac turns into shit everything he touches. That said, the idea of a Master 1000 in Madrid was doomed to fail in the first place, it isn't an adequate location for serious tennis.
