Good question. I can't find them either.

Re: Madrid open website - where are interviews?

I remember last year there was a controversy over sports writers not wanting the interview transcripts issued, so they could write their articles and select quotes and you couldn't just go to the website and read the presser: you have to read their articles (hence, buy their newspapers or website subscriptions or even if it's a free news website at least they will get more web traffic and maybe click-thrus on their ads).

Most fans were outraged and there was an uproar. I seem to remember a compromise was reached that the transcripts would be held for 24 hours and then released, so the writers' stories would still have a chance to draw (impatient) readers. But now everyone has forgotten this and maybe the International Tennis Writers Association has quietly revived it-- I don't know

More info here:

Again, I don't know if this is the handiwork of the iTWA or another one of the Madrid tournaments "new ideas" -- anything is possible from Tiriac -- but I hope it's not going to become a trend.

Thank you very much for your answer- and explaining how things work there.

I must say this is really shame - Tiriac wants ,,5th,, slam and he can´t even get to fans one of most important things... slams - IW, Miami had interview transcripts also with 1 day waiting but at least it was easy to find

Re: Madrid open website - where are interviews?

They aren't to be found on any ATP tournament site anymore, due to some kind of ridiculous PC (read: censorship) reason because of the ATP not wanting to have any player say something non-PC in their pressers anymore.

Sucks of course, and once again, it shows how $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ talks and sh*t walks.

What's the point of having press conferences then? Nothing worse than having the tennis press embargo them so they can take quotes out of context and write headlines that re just good click bait.
