Re: Anyone planning on going?

I can't wait! My mom and I went last year and we quickly got into a routine. We'd grab a coffee and the local paper at the Starbucks on our way to the tournament. The local paper has an insert during the tournament that has the order of play and other articles, etc. We'd hit the practice courts first thing when they open the gates since there were usually a number of players hitting. We could plan our day around the schedule of play, so we'd grab a cold drink and head to the first match. There's also plenty of beer stands Our first day we were at the complex from 9am until after midnight - watching tennis the whole time. I'll be there again from the 16th through the 19th!

Re: Anyone planning on going?

I will be out there the 9th through the 14th for qualies, practice courts and some 1R, 2R matches. Can't wait! I also suggest that fans hang out around the nicer resorts, i.e. the Esmerelda and those nearby because players in the top 100 commonly stay here with their countrymen and are out and about throughout the day. Evenings are the best for running into players!

Re: Anyone planning on going?

I have spotted many players at The Esmerelda and the adjacent resort in the same complex. The tournament actually offers a shuttle to and from but you are supposed to have a room key.

Hmm.. Does the Esmerelda have fine dining? I might go there one night for dinner with my stealth camera!

IW kick off weekend tickets to sell!

Hey everyone who's going and is interested in this......


I've posted this earlier, but i can't seem to find the thread anymore!

I have tickets for sale for the kick off weekend, due to the fact that i unfortunately can't make it to go!

It's one seat, in the loge seats on the west side, block 412, row D

The original price for it, for the whole weekend is $ 270,- aka $90,- per day (both sessions) and since i think it's a shame they'll be unused, i want to sell them for a very reasonable price of

$ 45,- a day (both sessions) or, if you buy the whole weekend package : $125,- and that's (more then) a 50% discount!

If anyone is interested, please let me know by pm!

Thank you,
Francis

Please PM me if you're interested.
In this bad economy, we're lowering the price to under $200 ... PM me if you're interested.

Re: Anyone planning on going?

Went to the tournament, had a great time. Went friday afternoon, caught a little of the friday night match between Urzula and Kuznetsova. Then went saturday for the evening match, but went in at 4;30. so caught a lot of the action, including Ivanovic yakimova, fed, hantuchova vs yanimayer, jankovic vs pavly, and blake vs neimenen.
