So, this is it, tennis fans. The first time I attempt to do a tournament dish. Today, you get the starters. Tomorrow, the main course.
Let’s start with Milos Raonic. First, he never seemed content for one moment throughout the entire tournament, even after his comeback win on Ebden. After his second round loss to Benjamin Becker, he left the court while I took photos of Becker signing autographs. I then proceeded to the rest rooms, which are conveniently (?) located off the grounds of the Hall of Fame, and it just so happened to be where the tournament vehicle pool resides. No later than 10 minutes after the match was over, and with barely enough time to clean out a locker, Milos was Vamos.
Now I don’t know if anyone actually requested a post-match presser with him, but I’ve never seen anyone leave the grounds of a tournament as quickly as he did. The intimate venue certainly assisted in the speedy get-away.
Tennis Channel Retro Logo?
A Titanic Tennis Channel Television Production Iceberg was avoided this weekend when Tennis Channel advance men spotted a blast from the past. It seems that the tournament was using an older version of TC’s logo in both the programs and on Center Court signage.
Although the new logo was admittedly a subtle change, the broadcast sponsors were a little surprised and wanted to make sure it was updated in time for live network coverage. We’re happy to report it was.
