What Gives? USTA Credentials Only One Serbian Journalist for USA vs Serbia Davis Cup tie
Quote:
[...] The issue is not in the denial of the request itself, as media centers tend to fill up fairly quickly for popular events like these; the issue is in the very limited number of spots open for Serbian media at this event. According to the Serbian Tennis Federation, only one Serbian journalist and one Serbian photographer have been credentialed for the USA-Serbia Davis Cup tie next month.

Given this staggering confirmation, the denial of Petrovackiís request becomes all the more bizarre as he would have only been the SECOND Serbian journalist at the event. In uniquely unwelcoming fashion, itís difficult to grasp that the USTA could not allocate more than one seat for Serbian media in its entire press room and arena. Regardless of how many Serbian media members actually end up covering the event, a few select spots (letís say 5, at the very least) should have been held open for the visiting countryís media. [...]
Thank you for the overwhelmingly warm welcome, USTA!
