Nope, and in fact they just showed a Gasquet/Klahn point where Gasquet hit it around the net post and it looked only about halfway up the net, but he hit the court and won the point

I guess not, they seemed to keep the roof open whenever it's possible. On the other hand, a good British indoor player might change things.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Can anybody clearly explain the diff b/w ad court and deuce court sides. Silly question, but confusing too.

Deuce side is when you serve at deuce, you serve from right to the service box in right. Ad side is when you serve at ad, you serve from left to the service box in right.

Re: S.Q.T. (stupid question thread)

Right Side = Deuce
Left Side = Ad

A player serves once two points at one side and keeps changing... right?

Not sure of the name of the ATP GUY( I think it is Greg Sharko-atp media director). The guy who speaks to the women is Kevin Fischer (he always wears funny pants http://us.loudmouthgolf.com/). He is the main WTA media guy ( official title Senior Manager/Communication & Publication).


I think they just tell the player that they have to do the on court interview and signs balls
