Not compared with other fans

But I know that I can't complain.

It would have even been more matches if I would have gone to tournaments earlier but I didn't knew anyone who would go with me back then and didn't wanted to go alone.

I wouldn't have a problem now to go to a tournament alone as you get easily in contact with other people.

It must have been amazing to be at a Wimbledon final and see your favorite player lifting the trophy

Re: Which matches of your favourite player have you seen live at a tournament?

I saw Federer beat Bogmolov JR at the 2004 Australian Open.
Bogo was unknown at the time (to me at least) - but he was going out with Ashley Harkleroad - who I saw the same day losing to Venus Williams.

Favourite ATP players: Federer, Gasquet, Ferrer.

Hottest WTA Girls: Goerges, Ivanovic, Kirilenko, Sharapova, Wozniacki.

All-Time Hottest: Anna Chakvetadze

Re: Which matches of your favourite player have you seen live at a tournament?

Despite the fact that I have been to Wimbledon every year bar one in the last decade, I have only managed to see Andy Murray once actually live - though a few times I had a ticket for the wrong court and watched him on the big screen on Henman Hill.

The once I saw him live was a pretty good one though - the 5 set battle against Wawrinka, the first match played entirely under the new roof.

Re: Which matches of your favourite player have you seen live at a tournament?

Wow you've seen a lot of Roger's matches. I'm very jealous. I seem to be a unlucky charm for him. He loses a disproportionate amount of the time when I'm there/have tickets for the later stages of the tournament.

I've never been lucky enough to see a live tennis match.

Sadly, I've only seen women's matches live - Brisbane International was good in 2010, though, got autographs of Henin and Clijsters. Noway I would pay money to watch that hooligan Mugray though. I didn't attend 2012.

Re: Which matches of your favourite player have you seen live at a tournament?

I've only been to the USO 2008 when I was about 14 so I don't remember much.

I saw James Blake play some mug and saw Sharapova play a bigger mug.

I want to go see Del Potro sometime in the future, and hopefully Roger before he retires.

I got Roger's autograph though. Also got dull's.

Re: Which matches of your favourite player have you seen live at a tournament?

Cool thread. I have only seen one match live from Roger but it was even before I was a fan and it was awesome. It was at Wimby '01 when he made his breakthrough. I saw his match with Malisse in the 2nd round I think on an outside court. Both scary talented players. Fed took the first two sets but Malisse came back to win the next two and went a break up in the 5th. He then pretty much choked it away. It was obvious at that point that Malisse was a mental case with immense potential. After the match he broke all his racquets and gave it to some kid. Roger wasn't far behind in the mental case department until then but he was about to announce his arrival on the big stage...
