Indeed - to both statements.
Its an awful idea to even think of having the US Open in LA. With no offense to Deb, but I don't want the US Open in a place where the fans sit politely and barely clap. I watched the DC against Chile - if they were any more quiet, I would have thought I was watching a church service rather than a sporting event.
And there is no place like NY. Its the greatest city in the US. By far. And the best thing about the US Open is the atmosphere - its wild!
So a big negative to moving the US Open. I'd fly all the way to Sydney for the Oz Open before I'd go to watch the US Open in LA.
What we need is a roof on AA stadium. But its not New Yorkers fault that the USTA was too greedy and chose to build a shrine to the wealthy over a roof when they built it.
