Is anyone else disappointed that Hewitt/Haas is not the night match? No disrespect to Roddick (who I like) but he has already had two or three night matches. Hewitt is a former USO champ and tennis insiders all seem so happy about Haas' return. Plus- I think that H/H has the potential to be a fantastic match.

I wonder when they will fit in the end of the two matches left over from today?

I'm editing the updated OP which includes the two unfinished matches.

Clara... they don't care about anything except filling seats. Did you see the night sessions when none of the "Big" American players were playing this week? it was noticeably emptier. There is no other motive than the $$bottom line$$ and that's why Andy is the night match, no other reason.

Yes-I know that (sigh) money is always the end issue here. And it is a shame that people here can't appreciate a good international match when it is on their front door step. But I guess it is the chicken and the egg arguement- aor rather the longsighted as opposed to shortsighted view that is hard to find when it comes to money. Exposure leads to familiarity leads to interest leads to buying tickets.

But even the New York Times has written articles saying that US tennis fans need to get out of viewing tennnis only through the interest prism of matches involving high profile US players and need to become more well rounded and astute by becomming appreciative of the variety of talent out there.

Yep, you're quite right. And you will forever and always have the fact that the home players will draw more crowds than international players, no matter what, and no matter where you are. It's not only here that the home players get night matches and on better/bigger courts. Just the way it is, unfortunately.

It's going to rain tomorrow anyway, so it might all not matter at all anyway lol

Bunk is correct. The players had to shower, stretch, and get massages after their matches, then travel to their hotels or houses. The earliest they got to bed was probably 1:30 am, and likely later. They would be spitting mad if they had to be ready for an 11 am match the next day.

The problem with the New York Times's logic is that the *majority* of people who attend the US Open don't go to tournaments throughout the year, they're casual fans who go to one tennis event a year, and it's the US Open. So the only names they know are the biggest names that the papers wrote about and who are mentioned on TV a lot, and those are the players they want to see. It's like me going to a major golf tournament. The only player I really know anything about is Tiger Woods, and he's the player I would want to see play. I wouldn't really be interested in spending lots cash to see players I never heard of before.

So the only names they know are the biggest names that the papers wrote about and who are mentioned on TV a lot, and those are the players they want to see.

The gist of the article (which I pulled from Lexis Nexis and can't post here) stated that the media needs to cover a greater variety of players so that the US fans can in turn not only be interested in certain big name American players. I thought that the article was well thought out and gave the American public the benefit of the doubt in saying that if they could become more familiar with a greater variety of players, then it is likely that they could be interested in more than one or two big name Americans. The article did say that currently, with the present media coverage, that a lot of causal US fans are not made aware of a number of players and so continue to be ignorant about them, and are- therefore- just interested in one or two players. Isn't it thought that in regards to the Grand Slams that the US Open fans are the least knowledgable about tennis as a general rule? I don't know why that has to be so.

I understand that people are most interested in the biggest names of US players- that makes sense and is natural. However, I do though think that people could become more interested in some of the other players out there. I'm not saying that they will ever embrace Federer as much as they do Agassi- but they could still be interested and want to see his matches. If in other sports casual fans can be aware and interested in more than a handful of individuals I don't see why it would be so impossible in tennis. Even in golf, the most casual oberver who attends a tournament is hopefully aware of Vijah Singh of Fiji- even if they just watch Tiger they should know that these two have been battling out for the number one ranking for the past couple of years. Greg Norman was one of the most well known golfers in the world and the US during his heyday and he is from Australia.

But maybe I am giving the casual US fan the benefit of the doubt, but I hope not. I will be quiet now because whenever I seem to wish that US fans could become more globaly and widely aware of the players in sport of the tennis like they were in the 1970s and 1980s a lot posters seem to just say that it is impossible. And if is impossible than that makes me sad. I guess that I am an idealist living in la-la land (I have been told as much in other realms). ;)

Maybe a good result would be to sexify the men's game. Sharapova is now seen as a sex symbol and she got butts into the seats. Tommy Haas- who is German but lives in the US like Maria- is a good looking guy- and there are plenty of others on the tour. Maybe we need a shirtless night for men's matches or something. (I am kidding of course)

Anyways- still wish that the Haas/Hewitt was the night match- because I think that could be a great match. The crowds at USO are great about getting into tight matches even if they are not that familiar with the players and it could be more entertaining than perhaps another Roddick blowout (although hopefully Johannsson will give more of a contest.)

Socket
09-09-2004, 04:52 PM
You make a lot of good points. And I agree that during the 70s and 80s, there seemed to be a lot more coverage of players based on their talents, rather than their passports. Tennis certainly was a more popular sport in America back then.

Yes, I would have preferred that Hewitt/Haas be the night match, but I also know that in Melbourne, Lleyton will get all the night matches he deserves, even when he's about to whip some poor qualifier's behind. :)

At least they didn't shunt him off to Armstrong, although they might have to if it rains again.

Clara Bow
09-09-2004, 05:01 PM
Socket- true- Hewitt will get a chance for the night matches in Australia. At least he is not poor Henman- who is shuffled off to the Grandstand today. Stupid rain. But Henmans seems to do best when the eye and pressure is not on him so this could be a good thing for Tim.

I'm hoping that they show some of the Paes/Rikl vs. Nadal/ Robredo semifinal match on USA since the only other competition at that time should be a women's doubles quarters. I'm home sick with a cold and fever today so I am really hoping that I can see the full day's coverage with none of that mean wet stuff coming down and interupting the days play.

ETA- The Henman/Hrbaty match could take place the same time as the second men's doubs semifinals. Well if Tim wraps it up maybe we will get to see some of the semi

Socket
09-09-2004, 05:28 PM
Yeah, I suspect that Henman is happy about the Grandstand. It SHOULD be a very short match, so maybe that's why they chose the Grandstand.

They just revised the schedule. The two suspended QFs from yesterday will start at 2 pm (in two minutes).

Fee
09-09-2004, 06:13 PM
I believe there are two rules that govern suspended matches - they have to be played on the court they started on and they cannot be the first match of the day. Hopefully, that helps to explain the scheduling.

As for Haas/Hewiit not being the night match, it is also possible that the players asked NOT to be the night match. Some of the guys don't like playing Ashe at night, its too loud, its too late, and the crowd can be a little bit unruly. But, with that in mind, the U$TA probably did put Andy there to make more $$$$$$$$$$.

good thing there's live scoring at least. and i can't blame cbs for not showing it since usa network probably has exclusive rights to the broadcast.

Andre a guy that I don't like much, but has still beaten many good players this year, so not bad for a senior tour.

The wind affects both players, it just depends on who has the better footwork and doesn't get frustrated.

They cheered loudly too in his match against Roddick in Cincy, so it's not an anti-European/pro-American thing. It's just Andre Agassi, the tennis legend.

At least the NY crowd doesn't boo players when they enter the court or stop and tie their shoelaces like the RG crowd does every year. :)

Trying to justify ignorant behaviour, you really don't think about what you say, do you?

Since when has a player jeered when they went onto a court at RG? You would have to watch this tournament first, and when it happens it's because of a players conduct on the court and not because of where they are from, whereas in this case there isn't a justifiable reason to jeer and clap double faults, even if it is Agassi.

If you want to talk about unruly crowds then maybe South American and Spanish crowds at times.

Escude, are you watching the Henman match live on TV? Keep us updated please! :banana:

I'm not justifying any ignorant behavior. But your comment implies that only the NY crowd cheers other players' DFs and I was simply pointing out to you that it's not true. :).

Incorrect. I say exactly what I mean and it's typical for a NY crowd to do that at the US Open, when it's a big American playing.

Were you asleep watching RG this year? :rolleyes:

How much of the French Open did you actually see? Give me an example of a match where it happened. I was at the tournament live.

South American crowds are by the far the most rudely partisian crowds in the world and everyone knows it. Of course to you, you would think it merely patriotic.

Buy a clue, I said if you want to talk unruly crowds where did I say South America and Spain. Yes, they are exuberant and provide a different atmosphere to anywhere else, it can be harsh and boo everything during the match against the non-favourite, but clapping double faults and jeering for the sake of jeering isn't good anywhere, they think it's a football match.

What "end"? The "end" for Agassi, as in "no more GS titles" came last year when he lost to Ferrero.

The "end" as in "drop out of top 10, never going to win another title, should retire before he embarrasses himself against Jurgen Melzers of the world", hell no. He lost a tight 5-setter in QF against best player in the planet. There is absolutely nothing more we could ask from 34-year tennis player.

rassklovn
09-09-2004, 07:53 PM
Especially when Agassi is playing. And I meant exactly what I meant: that the NY crowd isn't the only crowd that cheers for a foreign opponents' DFs. If Andre were Andy and Andy DF'd, they'd cheer that too because Andre is "the man." Can you understand even a tenth of this? Jeez.

I don't give a crap who it is. It's typical for a NY crowd not to be respectful at a tennis tournament to non-Americans. My favourite example of this is when they booed Pat Rafter after he retired from a match, with a genuine injury, that showed true class.

Then you probably missed Roddick being booed as he entered the court just before his match with Martin.

If it was Gilbert getting booed then it's understandable, but he never played on centre court there did he.

You still don't get it, you probably think football violence happens all the time and have you ever been to a major football tournament or match? I have more than once thanks, and that is not a credible source that those articles you provided.

Who's making excuses for ignorant behavior now? And thanks for agreeing with me.

I am not making excuses tangerinus at all, just stating facts and it was myself that mentioned unruly crowds in South America and Spain first, even if it's a festive atmosphere, I said initially I don't care but jeering and clapping double faults is not good anywhere, but I have already said that.

Yeah, that happened several years ago right? Does the NY crowd boo foreigners every year like they do at RG? And cheering DF's is hardly that disrespectful. It's happened at every single slam this year; it's not a NY thing. Besides, I've heard worse behavior from other crowds in other countries. (love the Italians whistling Federer off the court earlier this year in Rome; so classy of them)

Wasn't the fact already mentioned that it wasn't just NY crowds lacking respect. More news the French have booed their own players Leconte, Mauresmo for example. Well the Australian crowds are generally very respectful apart from the incident with Corretja. South America, Spain, Italy they are loud and harsh in some ways, the difference except in South America in many cases they know better, but choose to express it in this way and no that doesn't make it right.

It is a recorded fact that soccer violence has been growing worse every year. More people die during fan violence at soccer games than any other sport. Just because you don't want to believe it doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Wow, talk about having your blinders on.

Here's something for you to read. I'm sure you won't find these to be "credible sources" either.

That's old news and have ever you tried to comprehend the history and sociological reasons for why football hooliganism has happened? Has it ever dawned on you, that it being the biggest game in the world, and with the large support that it's fertile recruitment grounds for particular kinds of gangs. Don't try and be an expert on something you don't know what you are talking about.

The way you try and make it out, it's like being an open homosexual in an Islamist country. It's a problem and has been one for a while and it's not just in South America.

No, it wasn't mentioned. If Rasslov mentioned it, I missed it, and apologies if so, but his posts made it out to sound like it was only the NY crowd who cheered DFs and that they only do it when it's a foreign player. It's not true.

Personally I am not a fan of the NY crowd, but there are certain things I come to expect and respectful tennis crowd is something I don't expect and it doesn't disappoint, but this goes for other places as well, which has been mentioned and each act in a particular way for their own reasons, whether people like it or not.

I know it's old news and yes, I've educated myself on sports violence and its history. We have our own problems with NFL but it's fan fanaticism is nowhere near the level of soccer's. I've read a few books on soccer hooliganism and it's a big reason why I'm glad soccer isn't popular in the US (yet). I also know it's a worldwide problem and not just South American, sorry if I made it sound like it was just S.A.'s problem. And thanks again for agreeing with me. :hatoff

That is absolute garbage that this is a big reason as to why football isn't popular in the US, it's a reason not a big reason. Try the fact that it's catered to the wrong market, a lack of a good senior structure ( only recently in space0, the concept of a game where they have to use their feet for most of the time and not their hands is an alien concept.

The sources for the most part are not reputable. Have you ever spoken to a top football hooligan? There are lots of self-help books, it doesn't mean that you are going to be good as giving self-help advice to people.

You totally made it out that football fans in S.A and Europe are absolute animals, when it's a very small minority, that are scum and that's everywhere in all sports. If by actually experiencing something like this, then you would have a better concept of what it's about.

why did they change that us open commercial
from "madmen" when they show hewitt/safin
to "bad boys"
i like the "madmen" version

Whenever I see this commercial, I think that they should put a big red X over the players who are already gone. :devil:

EXCELLENT match from Lleyton! He did a fantastic job of adjusting to conditions, and neutralizing Tommy's power with precision and patience. Committing only 10 UEs in a 3 set win in these conditions is simply incredible. That's the most impressive stat of the match. :worship:

Loved JMac's comment about the pigeon crapping on Tommy's head -- that was just too funny. :haha: :haha:

Lleyton was sooo impressive. Man- does he have his head screwed on tight or what? He just seemed to be in the zone. I will not be surprised at all of his is lifting the winners trophy on Sunday.

I am so hoping for a competative match tonight.

I almost have some sympathy for Roddick right now. He's losing these great opportunities... what's the go? He likes 5 set matches?

Are you guys noticing that Roddick is touching his hat a lot?
I dont know if it means anything, but he's doing it in most of the netcam photos... it would be annoying the crap out of me if I was watching the match!

he is normally readjusting his hat after almost every point, normal routine
