More info up front would be nice
The new format is clean, but it would be nice to be presented with something other than the temperature. A selection of the most important recent results wouldn't hurt. It does the basics, but a bit slowly.
Better than some of the other majors, it's good but could be more exciting.
Could be better
Wasn't interested in all the social stuff, but found the draws, results and schedules very slow to load and no explanation of how to change the day or event. Very frustrating. I only found out by chance.
Somewhat slow & cumbersome
Slower than other tennis apps. Less easy to find latest scores etc.
