Open Court


Net change – live on Amazon!! (video)

MIAMI, Fla. – The things you don’t see on television …

Wednesday, after the end of the Sorana Cirstea win over Aryna Sabalenka, there was a good 20 minutes to fill before the men’s match.

So the British Amazon Prime team – the entire team, four “talent”, three camera people and a producer – trooped down to courtside to fill in the gap and yak about this and that.

Except … they were right at the entrance to the court. And the court staff was anxious to get onto the court, take down the WTA net and install the ATP net for the next match.

But they couldn’t get through. And the Amazon crew were showing ZERO signs of wrapping it up.

Eventually, as the clock was ticking, their intrepid producer deftly managed to shuffle the crew over to one side, with just enough space that the attendants could get by with the rather unwieldly and very large nets.

If you were watching, you probably didn’t notice a thing. 🙂

(Also – it’s probably the only time in her life that Cirstea has been interviewed for that long, by so many people at once).

Here’s what it looked like.
