I'm gonna go on the Saturday for qualifying + practice. Doubt I'll go on the Sunday, will probably be watching Rafa collect another RG trophy.
Might go there at some point during the week for a day or two if I can get tickets, I forgot to enter the ballot (again
Check your PMs.
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me - I'm hoping to go to Queen's on the Monday or Tuesday and I really want to see Safin play. I just wanted to know if anyone has been to the tournament before and knows which court Safin is more likely to play on - Centre Court or Court 1? I thought that if Safin plays on the Monday then him and Lleyton Hewitt would propably be the most likely players to be on Centre Court but I'm not sure. Or does anyone know when the draw comes out, in case I should wait to buy a ticket?
Any help is very much appreciated, thanks!
The draw is out Saturday 6th June. You'll probably still get tickets for the Monday but Tuesday might be pushing it. As for which court they play on, I'm afraid there's no way of telling. It's possible Safin will be a top 8 seed in which case he might not play until Wednesday. Hewitt will almost certainly be on centre, as a four times former champion.
Has anyone been to Qualies here before? I know that it's free so do you just kind of walk in? They use like 8 courts and 2 rounds are played on Saturday? Are the top players around practicing? Are there many people(fans) around?
Yes, you can pretty much just walk in. Many top players are already there, especially non-Europeans who basically come straight from Roland Garros. The practise courts can sometimes be a bit overcrowded (like when Roddick or Djokovic are there) but the grounds are generally quite empty on Saturday.
