Well I'm lucky joeb, as it's my Birthday the week after, so my Dad paid for my travel costs (roughly £160.00 return) as a Birthday present
Tickets are about £20.00 per day in the earlier rounds - they get more expensive towards the end of the week obviously - I think it was about £50.00 for the Final day.
Accommodation is the most expensive thing in MC without a doubt - although you can save a lot of money by staying in nearby Nice or Menton - there is a special train that runs to these places from just outside the Country Club during the tournament and there are loads of cheap B and B's and Hostels in these places. Must admit I actually stay in MC itself - and yes, it IS horrendously expensive (far too much to contemplate), but that's what credit cards are for and I see it as my little Birthday present to myself
The greatest gift of course would be for David to win the tornament - but maybe I'm asking for too much
