I dont think its an embarrassment to play on Armstrong -- do the players feel that? Certainly I have purchased tickets for top players' matches at Armstrong
The USO doing this for the top seed does not make it the norm or the proper way to do things. Wimbledon has had Pete Sampras play on the graveyard of champions for example
I can't imagine there is anything humiliating/embarrassing about playing on one of the other courts other than Center, in an early round for the No. 1
