from what I read online, they are basically saying to day session MCA holders to come back and use it for night MCA. This year would have been perfect for an after 5 ground(ish) pass. I guess they gotta be within the limit of Melbourne Health.I need to find out how I can get these haha
Nick is the most popular player on aus tv. His match v Nadal was the most-watched tennis match last year.(beating the final) And I think his match v Karen K(?) was up there as well.Ahhhh yes of course! Then why is he commentating? Weird how they loaded out all the big guns for Nick, and Djokovic gets Tom Rehn and on the secondary channel.
Got nothing to do with his ability. It's his personality and how he has carried himself at times in the past. The general public just don't warm to him.I just don’t get it. Djokovic is literally stroking the ball as cleanly as you could see, moving as well as he ever has, winners everywhere, and the crowd...a lukewarm response to everything. Literately witnessing greatness and they don’t even care. Pathetic. 8 AO titles and still no respect.
they dont like each other. so what. Dont think it is a rule in this world which says you have to be nice to everyone.
Benoit unhappy about something? No way!they dont like each other. so what. Dont think it is a rule in this world which says you have to be nice to everyone.
I love it. Long live press conferences which aren't robotic, full of candy cane and full of cliches. Annoys the hell out of me when people complain about answers like what Novak did and what Nick will do.
Btw, on that. Paire had a couple of shots at hosting the tournament. I put the quotes in Spoilers, so not to create a super long post.
"Je n'ai pas signé pour ça"Benoît Paire a fustigé les conditions de préparation de l'Open d'Australie, ce lundi après sa défaite au premier tour face au Biélorusse Egor Gerasimov (6-2, 2-6, 7-6, 7-5).rmcsport.bfmtv.com
"C'est bien beau leur tournoi, mais pour moi, je trouve que c'est de la merde, et ce qui s'est passé, c'est honteux, a-t-il lâché. Après, mon niveau de jeu était bon, je trouve, mon attitude était bonne. J'espère que je ne me suis pas fait trop mal au coude. Mais sinon, dans l'ensemble, je suis très déçu de ce tournoi."
"Moi, je n'ai pas signé pour ça, fulmine-t-il encore. J'ai signé pour quatorze jours où je peux m'entraîner, un truc où, justement il n'y avait pas beaucoup de monde dans le vol pour, dans le cas d'une personne contaminée, qu'il n'y ait qu'une seule petite section concernée. Moi j'ai voyagé tout seul en business, je n'ai vu personne du voyage, je suis allé tout seul à l'Hyatt, parce qu'il n'y avait personne et que c'était le vol des qualifiés. Je n'ai pas croisé une personne de tout le voyage. Et là, il y a un cas positif dans le vol et tout le vol est en quarantaine! Je n'ai pas signé pour ça!"
"Ce n'est qu'une question d'argent"
Il dénonce une différence de traitement entre joueurs après qu'un cas détecté sur un autre vol n'a pas donné lieu aux mêmes complications. "Ce tournoi, franchement, je trouve que c'est vraiment de la merde", ajoute-t-il. Il poursuit. "Ce n'est qu'une question d'argent, dénonce-t-il. C'est tout, en fait. Il y a une énorme perte s'ils ne font pas le tournoi. Coûte que coûte, il faut qu'il y ait le tournoi. (...) Moi le premier, je joue aussi pour l'argent. Mais s'il faut faire tant de sacrifices et que ça se passe si mal, que ce soit une galère pareille, à un moment donné, il faut juste dire stop.""I didn't sign for this"
"It's all well and good their tournament, but for me, I think it's crap, and what happened is shameful, he blurted. After, my level of play was well, I think, my attitude was good. I hope I didn't hurt my elbow too much. But otherwise, overall I'm very disappointed with this tournament. "
"Me, I did not sign for that, he fumed again. I signed for fourteen days where I can train, a thing where, precisely there were not many people in the flight for, in the case of an infected person, that there is only one small section concerned. I traveled alone in business, I did not see anyone on the trip, I went alone at Hyatt, because there was nobody there and it was the flight of the qualifiers. I did not meet a person the whole trip. And there, there is a positive case in the flight and the whole flight is in quarantine! I didn't sign up for that! "
"It's all about the money"
He denounces a difference in treatment between players after a case detected on another flight did not give rise to the same complications. “This tournament, frankly, I think it's really crap,” he adds. He pursues. “It's all about the money,” he denounces. “That's all, actually. There is a huge loss if they don't make the tournament. there is the tournament. (...) Me first, I also play for money. But if you have to make so many sacrifices and things go so badly, let it be such a hassle, at some point given, you just have to say stop. "
I am surprised it took that long. I am expecting another serve from Babosa tmw when she could lose. Kerber mentioned it today as well and blamed the HQ on her loss. and of course Puts. Sorana won, thankfully.Benoit unhappy about something? No way!
Does that guy ever just shut up and play tennis? Lmao.
Very poor. AO misread the situation. Tickets too expensive considering the timing of the tournament. Tickets for MCA should have been advertised as the ground pass ticket with access to the court all day and night. Could have planned it for a bit of a later start each day and bring back the after 5 ground pass.An attendance of 17,922 today
Still close to 18k is decent. Actually probably safer at that levelVery poor. AO misread the situation. Tickets too expensive considering the timing of the tournament.
