US Open special : What we like and dislike about tennis in the “bubble”
- 4 September 2020 à 19H45
"The US [Open] is well known for the entertainment...so much noise, so active all around - it's depressing, actually."
"The 2020 US Open? Just getting it done is a big accomplishment"She suggested that the USTA take a tip from the organisers of football matches across Europe, and work with broadcasters to make crowd noise available for viewers on all courts - not just the show courts. "It's tough when there are people hitting great shots, and nothing happens - there's no punctuation," agreed Rothenberg.
"When you see Andy Murray hit an incredible forehand winner and there's no noise, what did it mean?"But he was quick to pay tribute to the hard work of everybody who had to collaborate to get the event on at all.
"A lot of people wanted tennis back - they got tennis back. There's a Grand Slam event going on - that is not something I was at all confident would happen in 2020. Just getting it done is a big accomplishment."
