    Please be patient. It make take time for all of the photos posted in this topic to appear.
    I regret the delay.


    Given 2020 in general, the 2020 U.S. Open is probably going to be creepy.

    Djokovic "defaulted" from play after hitting line judge (relative of Judi Dench?) in the neck with a ball he hit in anger (not even looking in her direction) between points.

    Line judges creepily wearing masks outdoors, probably a concession to the incompetent buffoon Cuomo.

    Creepy empty seats, creepy masks, creepy interview.

    In my opinion, because the USTA is pandering to the controversial Black Lives Matter movement, it makes the U.S. Open more creepy.
    Among other things, BLM is Marxist and anti-Semitic.
    Can black lives be moved "to the front" without moving other lives to the back?

    Creepy empty stadium for a men's singles match.

    "Dowse said revenue, which will rely on broadcast and sponsorship deals, will be down 80% this year without fans."

    "The organization had to tap into its reserves to fund the tournament."

    "In 2019, a record 737,872 people attended the U.S. Open over two weeks, generating $400 million in revenue."

    Creepy that anyone should find wearing a mask to be creepy. The tennis is fun to watch. The empty venue and lack of crowd response not the normal fun but still, tennis, and some of it very good. The call on Dj was correct but clearly an accident. I hold him no ill will for it though he has been careless in his own country and got himself and others infected. And he's an anti-vac idiot. But overall a good guy. This was unfortunate.

    Does another attempt to exploit the death of Trayvon Martin -- about eight years after the fact -- help make the U.S. Open creepy? Yes, in my opinion. George Zimmerman was attacked by Martin. At one point Martin was on top of Zimmerman, banging Zimmerman's head on the pavement. Zimmerman was the target of a media mob. He was acquitted on all counts.

    Friday evening 9/11/2020. Watching the Thiem/Medvedev match using the “Watch Live” option at the U.S. Open web site (usopen.com) is disappointing.

    The main “Multi-Box” images are so blurry that it is difficult to see the ball, and even the score. The full-screen feature is not working. A creepy ad, taking up about 1/8 of the image, for UBRELVY, a migraine medicine, is constantly on the screen.

    Overall, a creepy, sub-optimal viewing experience compared to previous years when the “Watch Live” images were HD sharp and the full-screen option worked.

    Thiem is up 2 sets to none but took off his shoes and was treated for some kind of injury after the second set.

    Fans got to see a lot of his white-socked feet. Two pairs of socks -- good idea. Not wearing ASICS shoes…maybe not such a good idea.

    Thiem advances to the final against Zverev.

    How long has it been since an American has been in the U.S. Open final? 2006/Roddick?

    Take good care of that foot :-P Note socked left foot behind tennis racquets.

    "They pissed me off" – Thiem says about U.S. Open Organizers

    Dominic Thiem is widely regarded as a nice guy.

    He did, however, get into a confrontation with U. S. Open officials.

    Thiem reportedly drinks Red Bull during tournaments. He also has a paid sponsorship arrangement with Red Bull.

    The USTA prohibits players from displaying any products whose producers are not sponsors of the U.S. Open. It also prohibits players from drinking from an open, unobserved container, due to anti-doping rules.

    So, as soon as Thiem brought out a can of Red Bull, he was quickly ordered to hide the can, then turn it over to officials so they could pour the contents into a plain cup. He reacted angrily. Just a little awkward, maybe "creepy" moment.

    Dominic Thiem, down two sets, fought back to win an unprecedented fifth-set tiebreaker.

    Sasha Zverev showed championship talent, and also his tender side by tearing up when talking about his parents (evidently unable to attend the tournament) during his speech.

    920x920.jpg

    Sweeet. Give your sweaty tennis buddy a big hug!

    Probably my favorite moment/photo of the 2020 U.S. Open.

    Men's Singles Champion Thiem's prize money - $3 million.

    Men's Singles Runner-up Zverev's prize money - $1.5 million.

    The end of a U.S. Open is sad for many, but less so this year.

    Professional sports are driving people away by trendy "social justice" pandering and genuflecting to fascist "governor" mandates.

    One may wonder if the USTA will pay a price in corporate sponsorship, fan participation, and membership for surrendering to trendy madness this year.

    The men's singles championship match was epic. It changed my attitude.

    Despite all, congrats and thanks to the USTA for making the 2020 U.S. Open happen.

    "Two Weeks of Loud Silence at this Year's US Open"
    September 19, 2020

    "While change is nothing new for the tournament, one constant has always remained: there have always been fans in the stands -- until this year."

    "There were also no shortage of bizarre moments at this year's Open. During one early round men’s match, the chair umpire Carlos Ramos, told an empty stadium, to be “quiet,” to which John McEnroe, who was commentating for ESPN retorted, 'quiet please? It should be the opposite.' ”

    "Other strange happenings involved an Italian restaurant owner who was seen screaming at the top of his lungs outside of the U.S. Open grounds behind court seventeen, as he cheered on Matteo Berrettini, the number six seed from Italy during his third round match."

    "Perhaps the most bizarre moment involved Novak Djokovic, the heavy favorite and top seed on the men’s side who succumbed to his toughest opponent, himself. After breezing through his first three matches of the tournament, Djokovic suddenly found himself packing his bags at 5-6 in the first set after inadvertently hitting a line judge in the neck with a tennis ball in his fourth round match against the Spaniard, Pablo Carreno Busta."

    "The other major theme from this year's tournament was social activism."

    The fifth-set tiebreaker.

    Thiem initially appears to be limping.

    Towels are used to wipe Thiem's sweat from the court.

    Amazing: The last two (2) points of the tiebreaker were arguably worth $750,000 each.
