Help, i need everybody's opinion

Today i went to Australian open qualifying and had an awesome time, but tomorrow my mum is offering to take me to the kooyong classic, where Federer, Roddick, Kiefer, Mirnyi, Monfils and Ljubicic are playing. I need to know whether you guys think going to Kooyong and seeing the world number 1 and other top ranked players would be better than taking a chance that i could see playing like Ferrero, Robredo etc just practising. If you could tell me soon it would be greatly appreciated because i need to make up my mind in the next hour.

Personally I would go to Kooyong - because you're guaranteed top-class tennis with some great players you may never get the chance to see live again. I've been to quallies before where you hang around all day in the hope of seeing one particular player and they just don't turn up - especially as I understand there is more than one practice venue in Melburne and not all players go to the main venure to practice. It's up to you though - and have fun whatever you decide.

Re: Help, i need everybody's opinion

i'm thinking it might be something different too. I've been the australian open, and kooyong would be something nice and different. I'm leaning towards Kooyong

I'm leaning toward Kooyong simply because there are actual matches to be watched.

Yes, and with most exhibition events, the atmosphere is nice and relaxed and friendly (not the tension you get at a real tournament), so you might get more chances for photos etc.

Re: Help, i need everybody's opinion

OK I will be the oddball here. I'd go to Melbourne no doubt.

I don't give a damn about those players in Kooyong, playing for nothing really, just preparing themselves for a tournament you could be already. Those players in qualies are fighting their asses of

I'd not have a single doubt

Re: Help, i need everybody's opinion

I'd go to Kooyong, definitely, but then again I am biased because I like Roddick and would kill to see him live.

But since you've seen JC several times already... I'd lean towards Kooyong anyways.

Have fun wherever you go!

Re: Help, i need everybody's opinion

The big question to answer is:

Do you really like Federer, Roddick, Kiefer, Haas, Mirnyi, Monfils, Ljubicic and Coría?

If you answer yes to a few of these names, I think you answered your own question.
If no, you did too

Re: Help, i need everybody's opinion

Were you at Sebastien DeChaunacs match? (Against Junqueira)....
I'd go to Aus Open. Actual matches, worth something.... plus there's heaps more players and you might discover non-jcf people!!

Sébastien should be ashamed of his result against Junquiera

Are you saying that matches in Grand Slam qualifying are not actual matches, yet exhibition matches at Kooyong are?

Personally, I will be going to the AO qualifying. But if you like seeing Federer, Roddick etc, you should go to Kooyong. Its up to personal preference.
