This is a very interesting story. US Open in the 70s was always so noisy until Mayor Dinkins changed the flight pattern over the stadium (his only real legacy) and players would often say that they couldn't here the ball come off the racket. It's got to be a huge disadvantage.

Since this is "breaking news", I admittedly haven't yet given it much thought ---
but my reflexive reaction is that maybe it's a lot less of a disadvantage if one has
NEVER KNOWN ANYTHING ELSE, as opposed to someone who has always relied on hearing
"the ball come off the racket"...and then suddenly tries to play without that available to them?
