for you!!

Tell us all about it.

I was tempted to go..... but then, spending another 1,000 dollars on tennis seemed to be a bit extravagant.

Haha yea, This will be a magical moment for myself as I venture 2 hours down the Highway into Houston to watch Tim and everyone else. I simply cannot wait. It will be flabbergasting!

hey, have fun, Noodely! It seems like a nice intimate venue there. And also, please be sure to eat those Lucky Charms soon, before the industrial-strength preservatives wear off!

Re: Hey I was wanting to know who all was going down to...

i am planning to go but just found out today that work may intrude. i hope it doesn't bec i really want to be there.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: Hey I was wanting to know who all was going down to...

but who and by who i mean the tennis players who r qualified and are actually joining the tournament?

Marat: Last question: what do you think of me? Dinara: You are my god! When you play, I love
to see you. When you lose, I am even sadder than when it is me. When you are wounded, I suffer.
When you speak to me, I drink your words. When you come to see me playing, I am with the angels.

Re: Hey I was wanting to know who all was going down to...

I went last year and had a mixed time. I flew in for one day for the chance to see Roger, who I was dying to see. I got my wish (yea!), but he played JC and it was not a great match and didn't last long. By that time JC already knew he could not make the semis, and to me he didn't seem to trying very hard (a downside of the round-robin format).

I bought my ticket pretty late, so I wound up in the very last row of the bleachers. I didn't expect to have a great view, but I did have a great view -- of a metal railing that ran in front of one of the lower rows. This railing pretty much obscured the whole view of the court. The only way you could see was if you hunched over, which was real uncomfortable, or if you stood up. That was a little dangerous, though, because there was no back to the last row and a 4-5 foot drop behind it. Also, to get up there you had to climb these temporary stairs that really didn't seem all that sturdy. I agree with some of the criticism last year that the facility really isn't worthy of this prestigious tournament. I went to the Nasdaq 100 earlier this year, and that stadium was wonderful by comparison.

I still envy you for getting to go though! Especially since it will be out of the US for at least the next couple of years. Hope you have a great time and get to see Tim! (I also hope you have a better seat than I had )
