Re: Going to the US open today

I was going to go this afternoon, but the rain did not let up. Sat seems like a wash out, but i wouldn't go anyway with all those kids - not my thing. Sunday is the best day to check out the courts (I hope). I will attend the day session on the 4th. I would love too see Fed play in the evening, although I'm not sure what day that will be...

That's exactly what I did...couldn't find a grounds pass for labor day weekend. Did the next best thing...

Thanks troickitard and mechlan, these are excellent suggestions.

Yup, that's what I had to do for September 1, and I haven't decided if I will go September 2 or 3rd yet but I assume I will have to do the same thing then also.

Bummer, but I know what you're saying. I've gone to the AUS Open a few times and I always go during the 1st or 2nd round and spend most of my time during the day watching the action on the outside courts. Better tennis than what you see on Rod Laver early in the tournament. Ground passes definitely the way to go.

Excellent suggestion! I just decided to be spontaneous and am going Labor Day weekend, which of course is sold out for grounds passes on Sat and Sun, but I snagged excellent box seats for Louis Armstrong for $162 each, which is worth it to me to not have to sit in LA all day trying to get a great seat for photos, now I can just wander around the other courts and know my seat is secure (and they ARE great seats, very close, baseline one day and near the middle of the court another). I did get a grounds pass for Labor Day Monday, too. Not sure how long I'll stay that day since I have to be back home for work Tuesday morning.

I am driving, so any helpful hints for parking? I'm probably going to stay in NJ, still need to look for a hotel. NYC hotels that weekend are too pricey (did it last year).

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

First sunday night session!

Hi,

I have a pair of tickets for the first sunday night session (7:00 pm) at Arthur Ash. Is there a way to know which seeds will be playing that day or what are the chances of it being the men or women. Ideally I would love it to see a Federer or Nadal match..does anybody have an idea??

Re: First sunday night session!

There is usually one men's match and one women's match in each night session. As for who will be playing, not sure what side of the draw yet, but chances are pretty good you will see one of the two, and if not, another top 5 player.

2008: Olympics, Stockholm; 2009: Chennai; 2010: Basel
TT Singles:
Champion: 2009: Como CH; 2010: Napoli CH; 2011: French Open
Finalist: 2010: Ostrava CH, Braunschweig CH
TT Doubles:
Champion: 2008: Como CH (w/hahaha7), Tashkent CH (w/Adder A216); 2009: Jersey CH (w/Adder A216); 2010: Caltanissetta CH (w/Adder A216); Athens CH (w/Adder A216); Milan CH (w/Adder A216); Napoli CH (w/Adder A216); Orleans CH (w/Adder A216)); 2011: Meknes CH (w/Adder A216)
Finalist: 2008: Tulsa CH (w/hahaha7); 2009: Wolfsburg CH (w/EnriqueIG8), Manerbio CH (w/dusan1610); Como CH (w/Adder A216); Champaign CH (w/Adder A216); 2010: Ostrava CH (w/Adder A216); Aptos CH (w/Exponente); Binghamton CH (w/Adder A216); 2011: Dallas CH (w/Adder A216)

Re: First sunday night session!

There'll be one 3rd round match from the bottom half of the men's draw and one 4th round match from the bottom half of the women's draw.

The men's match match could be, e.g., Nadal vs Ginepri or Almagro, Del Potro vs Fish or Murray vs Karlovic, the women's likely Serena vs Stosur or Venus v Clijsters.

my tentative TT schedule
Monte Carlo (w/ TankingTheSet), Madrid (w/ Evita), Rome (w/ Gallina), French Open (/w Nando_L), Wimbledon (w/ Evita)
