Poor planning at US Open by tourney organizers- Super Saturday - FIRE HAZARD

I was lucky enough to be there for the men's semis and when the 20000+
of us were leaving, 20000- of those attending the women's final were
entering the stadium.

Can you imagine the masses of people crossing each other.  It was
CRAZY!

On top of that, they blocked off ALL of the escalators leading up to
the promenade and forced EVERYONE to walk out down ONE stairway.  How
STUPID is that.

It was a SERIOUS hazard if anything had gone wrong.  They absolutely
need to figure out a better system.

The splitting out of the women's final into the night brings more
revenue to the tournament organizers (additional ticket sales - almost
double).  But, the way they have currently setup the egress from the
day matches is RIDICULOUS
