I noticed that, I thought it was blowing cool air onto her body.
Zebo has it I think, it's like an air con unit.
it was a fan type thing
I assumed cool air. Something new for tennis ?
Looked to me as if she was using it to cool her hands?
It's a cooling unit as Mamy says. Although I dislike tennis played on cement and hate the razamataz that accompanies the prize giving (after a suitable interval to allow the stagehands to build the stage) "Flushing Meadows" (a misnomer if ever there was one) gets a few things right. Providing an air cooler for the players is certainly one of those things. You will see the same thing provided for Formula One drivers when they are waiting on the grid to start the race. They have a bit more of an excuse as they are clad head to toe in three layers of fireproof overalls rather than a skirt and T-shirt.
September can be hot and humid in NY so air coolers needed
Flushing Meadows refers to the location, not the stadium. I went to the 1964/65 Worlds Fair there. It has a very old history.

// Although I dislike tennis played on cement //

They don't play on cement they play on acrylic hard courts.
I dislike tennis played on that as well. Such surfaces are second only to so-called "clay" (which should properly be called powdered bricks).
NJ they do NOT play on cement. No one does. Cement cracks too easily. Clay is not crushed bricks either !
Meanwhile, back at the question...
//Clay is not crushed bricks either !//

"2. Clay tennis courts. Clay courts mainly come in two different forms: The red clay court is a coarse mixture made from brick,..."

Assuming they don't play on whole bricks, I'm assuming the red powder they quaintly call "clay" consists of crushed bricks. If not please enlighten me. But whatever it is, I still don't like watching tennis played on it.
19.19 what have you contributed to the question?
The question is about the big pipe being used at the change of ends, not a rally involving the various materials used for playing surfaces.
That's us told. We'd better button it AuntPG :-)
NJ lol!
Am I alone in shouting out UVAVU every time I hear her name?
