anyway the trophy ceremony of US Open is a joke.. I mean why don't they let the players make a speech ? :rolleyes: Instead they make a so called interview with about one point five question and boast about the prize money

Yep, the US Open trophy ceremony is the worst, no doubt. You hit it on the head about the prize money.

Wimbledon may have gone more artificial with the interviews, but the US Open has long been about letting the corporate sponsers brag about how much the prize money is worth. Very tacky, if you ask me.

Not trying to be overly patriotic here but AO`s trophy presentation rules!!!!
*``*#@@#...At the AO the players are always allowed to give speeches as long as they like & let all the emotions come out!!! EG.This year we saw Federer crying for around 10-minutes after Laver presented him the trophy. The 05 final with Safin beating Hewitt was another good one with the speeches.
1. AO = best speeches
2. Wimby = nice little interview
3. FO = fine if you speak French
4. USO = nonsensical corporate crapathon!

The only thing that annoys me is the CEOs of Chase and Lexus got taped 15-sec spots before the ceremony. We don't want to see them; they should work quiety behind the scenes.
