Does anyone know who is playing for the USA

in this next Davis cup leg? I'm thinking about going but it's very expensive and it's the lower tier players I just can't see paying the price...

Re: Does anyone know who is playing for the USA

Well Andy and the Twins should be playing, barring injury or something like that. The fourth spot could be Fish (if you go by rankings), Spadea (if you go by consistency), or Ginepri/Blake/Dent (if one of them has a really great summer hardcourt season I guess)... but yea I read an article with the prices and I was like that's a lot of money!

You can hardly call them lower tier players though!

especially not on hardcourts in the US Plus Max is great too and I'm sure he'll be playing for Belarus

I shouldn't say this in front of you American guys but if Belarus field Mirnyi and Voltchkov, i think you will be shocked. Sorry.

I'm sorry if the team is Ginepri/fish then I would be like

$375/275 for 3 days is a lot of money.....especially since it will be on clay and we're not that good on clay....

I like Max, it's like getting a bonus American.

A girl can dream that Agassi will want to play for his country one last time. Yeah I know.

hmm, Bryan twins, Andy and just for pure factor Blake would be great...

Still a minimum of $300 is crazy for a decent seat.

Re: Does anyone know who is playing for the USA

I thought there were packages for less!!?! Or you could wait til closer they might have the single-session tix and you could go on just one day or something? But I agree, $300 is craaaaaaaaaazy

jez it's being played on a very slow hardcourt. and in the US... obviously anything is possible, especially in Davis Cup but on paper surely the US is favored, assuming Andy and the Twins are healthy and play.

Re: Does anyone know who is playing for the USA

Sometimes (I think) it's sold out very quickly... That's why the tickets are so expensive, because they know a lot of people are willing to pay to see DC.

It's in the USA and it's on clay???

Ok, I just read your last reply.

I'm sure DC is a great experience, worth the price IMO.

Re: Does anyone know who is playing for the USA

but it's being held in the stadium where they hold the family circle cup?? That's green clay...unless they are laying down a new surface?? Which would really explain the price.

I go to the Family Circle Cup every year and here's the email they sent me about the tickets

Ticket prices are as follows
1st Tier Seating: $375 each (FCC box seats)
2nd Tier Seating: $270 each (FCC 2nd tier seats)
3rd Tier Seating: $180 each (first 10 rows of the third tier)
Grandstand Seating: $90 each (last 12 rows of the third tier)
- Tickets will be sold as complete three day packages. The above prices are per seat and include all matches that take place.
- You will be able to give a location preference when you place your order. You will not be given your seat assignment.
- Tickets will be mailed about 4 weeks before the event.

The $90 seats are the nose bleed seats ....

Re: Does anyone know who is playing for the USA

yea they're laying down a new surface. at Delray, which is already hardcourt anyway, they laid down an even slower surface. PMac was considering clay... but well, I think the hardcourt decision is self-explanatory

-----

Family Circle Tennis Centre, Charleston, USA
Stadium Capacity: 10,200
24 September - 26 September 2004
Day 1: 1330hrs (GMT 1730hrs) TBC
Day 2: 1500hrs (GMT 1900hrs) TBC
Day 3: 1300hrs (GMT 1700hrs) TBC
Surface: Hard (Decoturf) - Outdoors
Ball Type: Wilson US Open Extra Duty High Visibility Felt
------

I think last time they started out only selling the series packages but just a couple weeks before the tourney they sold them for each day. Good luck with whatever you decide to do though

Note about that last post. I believe GMT is five hours ahead of eastern time, not four.
