Madrid Tennis 2015 - Fake Crowds? You Judge.

Please see the 1.40 mark of this video. Or, just watch the whole clip and see what jumps out. I was watching this purely for pleasure but my eyes caught a weird crowd moment that just did not seem real.

You be the judge.

It's a 'Spidercam' (or skycam)... I started to see those 'moving cameras on wires' during F1 races years ago.

You wouldn't imagine much 'need' of them in a tennis match but apparently they've been using them for that since 2010.

Hi CM,

Yep, familiar with the use of those cameras - it was the movement and appearance of the people at 1.40-1.41 that stopped me in my tracks. It just didn't look real. I Thought maybe I was being groomed.
