Tournament officials have warned players not to broadcast “inside information” via Twitter at this years US Open. Naturally, players complain about it via Twitter. I find it very funny that the US Open has warned players to not broadcast inside information on Twitter, as if most players are stupid enough to do this in the first place. I think Andy Roddick sums it up the best.
Twitter is pretty much just texting online which allows people from all over the world to listen to what you have to say. I cant really see how tournaments can stop players from Twittering in their spare time and even on court to a degree. Tennis is a professional sport and if you are on tour then you know that giving away inside information or betting on tennis could see you hit with serious consequences.
