Neither did I. If he plays Winston-Salem this summer, I might drive up there to watch him. I could go to Atlanta, but I hate driving through there (will avoid Washington for the same reason).
haha, you're lucky enough that there's tournament in your nearby city.
I'll be in Asia while he will play in North American tournaments in this summer.
When I come back to the States in September (right after US Open), he might go to Asia to play in Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo/Beijing or Shanghai.
Even though we're both in Asia, I still have to take the flight to either China, Japan or Malaysia...
The only hope for me is the North American tournaments NEXT year (when I'll stay in US by September), but he might not go to Newport, which is the closest tournament to my place in US(he might not go to Newport this year, since he's scheduled to play in Philadelphia for WTT), otherwise Newport seems to be a good place to watch games and have some contacts with players.
