Do you believe it´s a good place? What is played there? A challenger?

Re: Davis Cup USA v. Switzerland to be played in Birmingham, Alabama

I really thought San Antonio would get it. There is a pretty strong tennis league community in central Texas. Granted- no big tournament- but Roddick and soon the Bryan Brothers will be living in that area of the state.

I like a lot of players.

I am hoping to go. Birmingham is a 6 hour drive for me.

Re: Davis Cup USA v. Switzerland to be played in Birmingham, Alabama

I guess it would depend on how much work I have, how much tickets cost, and IF I get tickets. Anyone know when they go on sale?

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

The article I read just said 'mid-January' so I don't think anyone knows for sure yet.

Re: Davis Cup USA v. Switzerland to be played in Birmingham, Alabama

So it's going to be held in Birmingham! Quite a surprise to me.

I wish to all that are going there, a lot of great tennis and a fantastic battle between these two teams. Both have a good chance of winning so it will surely be interesting.

And for us poor sods on the other side of the pond - a good livestream.

Re: Davis Cup USA v. Switzerland to be played in Birmingham, Alabama

Let me just tell you how EXCITED everyone here in Birmingham, Alabama is!!!!

Can you believe it? HAHA We are stoked!

The tennis community here is very large! And with the close proximity to Atlanta, there is no doubt it will be a sell out!

We have been wanting something this big here for a good long time. But with Nashville just to the north of us and Atlanta to the east it is difficult.

Now is our time to shine! What a treat!

Federer will get some GREAT Southern Hospitality for sure!

Thanks, that's better than nothing.

Re: Davis Cup USA v. Switzerland to be played in Birmingham, Alabama

I think it's quite a surprise that it's held here

How big a city is this? I'm also wondering if it'll be held at the venue of the Birmingham Challenger, but then I guess seating capacity will have to be expanded.

Re: Davis Cup USA v. Switzerland to be played in Birmingham, Alabama

Metropolitan Birmingham has over a million people.

According to news reports, the tennis site will seat 17,000 spectators.
