Of course it shouldn't happen but it does for the reasons I've given.  There will be a UK player in tomorrow's final and I bet he will be well supported by a capacity crowd.

Seem the BBC have copied tweets on their Live Text about empty seats.
Still empty seats for the ladies singles final

There were a few empty seats so what!!  All seats were sold and if some people are not occupying their seats there isn't much that can be done about it. I don't know if you go to Wimbledon for the Championships but there are always seats not being used.

Have not seen players stop to give autographs when leaving the court, why could it be that the seats are empty?

Maybe need better moderators at the Olympics to do the same!!

Re: olympics,, has someone eaten the tkts!!

Just been out to dinner with friends.  The restaurant was buzzing with news of our successes.  Never seen so many mobiles being used in one place.  We had a French lady at our table who was given a lot of stick every time a medal was won Wink
Today has to be the greatest day for UK sport and we still have people counting empty seats. Sad
Let's hope we continue with our success during the coming week Cool

Re: olympics,, has someone eaten the tkts!!

I don't think the point is counting the empty seats, though in some of the pictures it would be quicker to count the full seats.
No I think the point that is making many Olympic fans very angry is that they really truly wanted to see the Olympics firsthand in person but were unable to get tickets.
And now they see pictures of empty seats they would have been only too happy to fill.
