Bunk, when will you be in Scottsdale? I may go to the qualifying (1st day) or some day sessions (depends on the schedule).

Re: Site and Commitments list

I fly in on Saturday (qualies day 1) and will be there til the following Sunday. I'll only be at the actual tennis tournament on Wednesday for the day session and Thursday for the night session, though. It's our annual family vacation that week

Will your family be in the tournament too? I won't be able to go to any night sessions. Do you know the final will be on ESPN?

Re: Site and Commitments list

the deal I made with my parents is that I would go alone for the Wednesday session (my parents both have back problems and would just have trouble sitting there alllllll day like that) and we're all going to the night session. They're not particularly huge tennis fans anyway. They like it and watch the slams sometimes and stuff but that's about it. So it's actually quite a step for them to take me - but they see me so seldomly now that I think I can get almost anything I want if I beg nicely enough and give them a hug

I'm psyched, I got 3rd row box seats at the end of the long side of the court so basically by the baseline corner. and like I said I've never seen live tennis before!! So I'm hoping to see some of my faves but I'll be pleased with anything

and yea yay for ESPN showing it live! I'll be flying back to school that day so I'll have to set the VCR and hope nothing happens all week while I'm gone so it tapes

I remembered last year, I was passing the Scottsdale airport not long after the final is over. There was a long line-up of private jets taking off. You may probably able to hitch a ride back to Houston

I live in Scottsdale

Are you staying in Scottsdale or Phoenix? If you stay in Scottsdale, check road condition before you leave for Sky Harbor Airport. Loop 101 has been closing around 202 during weekends recently, which is the main route from Scottsdale to the airport. The other freeway to airport, SR51 also has tons of road work and usually, sections of it are closed during weekends too.

Re: Site and Commitments list

OMG LUCKY YOU! (we've been going every year for about 10 years or so, we love it out there so much. We used to go in April when I was still at home in school b/c that's when my break was and now it's in March so that's when we go lol)

We stay in scottsdale, my parents stay for 2 weeks so my mom rents a condo. it's quite nice... we usually stay around the McCormick Ranch area.

THANK YOU for the heads up on 101! I'll tell my mom to check it out beforehand.

Re: Site and Commitments list

Weekdays should be OK on the freeways but weekends are nightmare. Since last summer, there are non-stop road work on all the freeways in Metro Phoenix area. That's a good area you stay.

You won't think I'm lucky during those 100 days of +100 degree temperature in the summer

Re: Site and Commitments list

ok cool, good to know!!!!!

and yea haha we were there one April and it hit 101. It wasn't nearly as bad as 90 in Houston is in August! But yea the heat in the summer is one of the major reasosn why my parents haven't moved out there yet. So instead they like it 13 degrees and the pipes burst and flood the house!
