Didn't follow the situation closely. It was 3-1 when I commented on it not being on there. By 5*-2 0-30 it was up.

Maybe I should pitch my idea to them as well. When markets are added late or not at all, this should be docked from the pay of those responsible. Percentage based on estimated loss of revenue for the company based on this.

The center court at the Santiago ATP250 is utter junk.

Bad bounces, stumbling blocks and literally every changeover all day they've had people out with those clay brooms. It's not a good sign if court maintenance feels they have do to work every changeover.
