The vast majority of people who visit the US Open want to watch big names or guys they have seen before, not the most interesting matches. Look at last night's horrible schedule. Unlike the French Open, the majority of US Open visitors are not terribly knowledgeable about tennis. Lopez is well known enough - and the girls like watching him play enough - that he should have been on a TV court. He was for his first round. With all due respect to Florian Mayer, outside tennis addicts like MTF no one has a clue who the guy is.
again, not my oppinion at all i was just trying to figure this out
