Player Party

Has anyone ever been to any of the pre tournament player parties that are held prior to the tournament starting.? If so what is it like?

Re: Player Party

i went to the USOpen player party a couple years ago. It was pretty cool. There were big trays of snacks and an open bar, and Jim Courier's band played.

Re: Player Party

Been to two Challenger player parties. They were very nice, at the homes of some fairly wealthy people near the club. Good food, decent conversations, nice people. Plenty of beer and wine around, but no one got drunk or anything because there were matches to be played the next day.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Player Party

i've been in ATP Valencia's partis 2 last years
and very nice ones
the first year JC Ferrero was drunk it was very very funny listening him shouting in the street and Kuerten smoking was

this year was also funny with Costa and Lopez there.

and i didn't go but a friend who went this year to Madrid's one (on ... Thursday night) Robredo was also drunk and Roddick .... Andy left the party with a model ballgirl in his hands
and she's a friend of mine so i believe her!

How did you manage to go to this party? I think it is not that easy to get access to these events. Would love to go to a players' party one day.

Re: Player Party

Tennis players are said to be the most boring of pro athletes. All that thinking about the perfect shot.
