No audience - no semifinals

BOth players, and expecially Federer don't give a damn about this match for now. Federer is irritated with empty stands, doesn't feel like playing.

Re: No audience - no semifinals

i agree the feeling has to be odd for them. There are many empty seats

Re: No audience - no semifinals

Glad it's finally filling up - it was embarrassing and really irritating that such a prestigious marquee match was met by rows and rows of empty seats.

As a major tennis fan I find that so frustrating, given I would have been there at 8 am if I could.

Re: No audience - no semifinals

Now it's much better, but unfortunately the match is coloured with that awfull begining - it is still low-key atmosphere... What a spoiler! It should have been much better atmosphere, these two players deserved it!

Re: No audience - no semifinals

Just be patient for a moment, i believe intense crowd will appear as the set goes by....but not if Fed trying to crazy dominate like now.

It's probably because the world cup starts today.

Re: No audience - no semifinals

At least 1 person in the auddience....

The trainer is on for David Nalbandian and the pair have a lengthy discussion before the doctor joins them. Meanwhile, Leonardo di Caprio causes a stir by arriving in the stands accompanied by several bodyguards. Nalbandian is given a couple of pills and returns to the action.

I don't give such a thing to blah blah like World Cup is on the line. I like tennis, football, basket and of course i won't pass German v Kosta Rika but if Fed is playing, there's no left for others.....priority no.1

Re: No audience - no semifinals

The empty seats in the lower tiers in RG are all sponsors/hospitality seats, and part of most of the Hospitality packages include lunch at 1.00pm. I remember seeing an equal numer of empty seats during the Gaudio/Nalbandian semi I attended there 2 years ago. The final days of Wimbledon are very much the same - after they stop providing the daily seats for queuers, the lower tier seats are often empty early on - I remember Tim Henman complaining once that there was "no atmosphere" for one of his matches because the real fans who normally sit low down at Wimbledon can't be there for the final days. As for them turning up for Nadal - there were an equal number of empty seats when he player first match against Djokovic the other day.
