Combined Series Tickets for Men's and Women's

How excited I was this weekend when I FINALLY got my series ticket renewal packet...until I opened it. Turns out, they are making no concessions to those of us who have no interest in buying tickets to the women's event. If I want to renew my series tickets, I have to buy tickets to both events. That sucks.

I know that eventually they will be combined into one tournament, but they're not yet, and I have no intention or desire to attend the women's tournament, nor to bankroll it. I sent the tournament ticket office a polite but unhappy letter, but I know it will do very little good.

How strange it is, after all these years, to be considering NOT going to Cincinnati.

Is anyone else a series ticketholder, and what do you think of being forced to buy both sets of tickets to get one?

On another note, is anyone interested in possibly buying two really good seats for the women's tournament? Cheap?

Re: Who's going?

I am probably going, but very unhappy about the ticketing situation. It's just hard to imagine NOT going. Though, I do wonder if this won't be our last year.

Re: Who's going?

It's so annoying about the women's tickets; I'll be in Montreal for god's sake. I'm still going to go though since it's the last year I'll be in the area.

I support a lot of mugs.

Re: Who's going?

I sent my renewal in yesterday. Also not happy about the ladies, but it wasn't too much extra and I'll try to sell those or give them to a friend who lives nearby. I don't know whose bright idea it was to include the girls, but I don't like it. I'm just hoping that by the time I get there, most of them will be long gone.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.

Re: Who's going?

It should be funny to see how many people actually show up to watch the women. I suspect it will be a mostly empty stadium until the weekend.

Re: Who's going?

I thought both the woman and men would be playing at the same time. Am I wrong? When do the qualies for the men start? That is when I will be there.

Re: Who's going?

I have to hunt for my packet to see what the official dates for each are, but the ladies play the week before the men. I think there might be overlap for the ladies final, but I need to find the darn packet, not sure where I put it. All I know is that I got my final bill that is due by May 1, check is already on the way.

Re: Who's going?

I'm going Sunday to Thursday. I missed last year because of the Olympics after going for six or seven years straight. I'm kind of excited for Sunday with the qualifiers, main draw doubles and women's finals all mixed together. Maybe Rog will play dubs if the kid comes early. Sunday is always a great day to get autographs/pictures. Now with the girls it should be even better. Hopefully Vika makes the final... Also, it's always fun to mingle around the Marriott Saturday night when many of the players are there or at the party. There is no better tournament in terms of fan accessibility than here...plus I really enjoy the Midwest atmosphere...like being able to pigout at Big Boy at 11pm.

See everyone there.

Anyone interested in 2 tickets for the womens event [ draw party, qualy weekend, entry to all courts from Aug 8- 13 including free parking ] PM me.
