Re: 2010 Challengers Overview [Calendar]

^Really? From what I saw it looked pretty full for the QF or SF, I don't remember which, but maybe it was just the angle :shrug:
Then again, it looks about 75% full here for the doubles semis in 2008, on a Friday or Saturday:

The problem with attendance at the Olympic Venue is that it's so isolated from the rest of Athens. The old venue had a better location.

Re: 2010 Challengers Overview [Calendar]

haha, the centre court was packed in the final only... half-empty in the semis... and tragically empty and lifeless in the qualies and the early rounds.

the other courts (court 3 and court 4)? thumbs down to hilariously empty, 10-20 people hanging in there. perhaps the tournament, compared to the rest of tournaments throughout Europe, hit an all-time attendance low.
Angelinos and Jakupovic played against each other in Athens yesterday, I think at the Lawn Tennis Club (site of Athens CH 2008-2009) and it looks pretty packed to me, and these guys aren't even top 400!





EDIT-1,000 people were there :)
