Houston Website: What do you think ?

http://www.mensclaycourt.com/main.htm

I was desperately looking for pictures on Houston, so I went to their website, but I think I still browse the web...
What I prefer on this site:
-The link to ATP.com for the results and the players' profiles
-The 9 big ads, with the furniture one in the center
-The Fed autograph to be won OR the raquet (cross the fingers for the raquet !)
-The fashion show link: at least there are pics on this tournie site !
-The big "Call... for tickets", we feel that MattressMac knows how to sell mattresses, for tennis tournaments it's another story
Live scores ? No way...

"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."

Well actually the funny thing is my friend built that website. I told him that I thought he half assed it but he didn't care becuase he still got his all access pass.

Re: Houston Website: What do you think ?

As good as the organisation this year.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

So, he did it on a trade rather than a regular commission? The site is much better than what they had for the Cup '03.

If he's open to it, please ask him to convince the tournament directors to invest in a little more UMPH! for the site like articles, pictures, and live scores. Fans should be able to buy tickets online as well. Tennis fans may volunteer to do everything for the site in exchange for tickets except the live scores technology.

Anyway, the website does suck really bad, but there are other tourneys where it's just as bad...

You must be kidding, he wore it and others in the same crappy style in Masters Cup every time an American player played. You call him an organiser...

he wears it in his furniture commercials, too. As I said, I think it's the only shirt he owns. His closet must be lined with 100 of them.

Yes, I can't explain how many ways that web site sucks. If you're not going to have the scores or the draws, don't tease us with the non-links!
