Re: Who is going?

Hi mate

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 )

Re: Who is going?

I'll be there on Saturday and then probably go Tues. or Wed. Hopefully we get tickets tomorrow morning. I have to get up at 2am to try and get them.

Re: Who is going?

^congrats! What day/court?

I have tickets for Court 1 on the Monday. I might do what I did last year too and get a ground pass for the Wednesday as well.

Re: Who is going?

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!

Re: Who is going?

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?

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.

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.

Re: Who is going?

I'll be there for qualifying on Saturday and probably on Sunday if any of the Brits make it to the final round.

Re: Who is going?

Does anyone know if you can go the Friday before the tournament starts and look around and see players practice and such?

Re: Who is going?

I am going on Monday and Tuesday,only have ground tickets but have access to court 2 and 9,so am hoping I get lucky and maybe see at least one or two of the popular players in action.Fingers crossed.

Re: Who is going?

Does anyone know a not crappy but not too expensive hotel to stay ?!

I'd like to go on Monday and Tuesday, maybe Wednesday, the problem being were to stay not too far from the club...

another question would be, if you buy tickets for one of the main court, do you have access to all ground courts and practice courts, like they do in RG, or does it work differently ?
