Re: Have you ever been to a Live Tennis Tournament?

2003: Legg Mason (my first, awwww)
2005: Montreal, USO quallies
2006: Roland Garros, Queens, Toronto, Cincinnati, USO

As far as 2007 goes.... well... Wimbledon is a possibility, and USO is a definite

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Have you ever been to a Live Tennis Tournament?

Oh, I didn't realize everyone was specifying. Well, I've been visiting tourneys since 1996.
  • Rotterdam [ATP] | Pretty much every year
  • Rosmalen [ATP & WTA] | Pretty much every year
  • Amersfoort [ATP] | 1997 (in Amsterdam), 2003 (?) & 2006
  • Roland Garros [ITF] | 2006
  • Wimbledon [ITF] | 2004
  • Scheveningen [ATP Challenger] | Most years
  • Groningen [ATP Challenger] | 2004
  • Dutch Tennis Championships in Warmond | Don't remember
  • Davis Cup | Twice
  • Fed Cup | 1997 Final
  • Antwerp [WTA] | 2006
  • Hasselt [WTA] | 2004 & 2006
  • Luxembourg [WTA] | 2004 & 2006
I think that's it

Re: Have you ever been to a Live Tennis Tournament?

too many to list. I went to quite a few wimbledons in the last 80s and early 90s when I was a student and had all summer off (thanks to an uncle who worked in the city and always had tickets but never bothered to go!).

more recently it's been mostly nottingham and challengers around the north of UK and scotland as I'm now living in Glasgow. Estoril was the last one I attended outside of the UK last year when I was over there for a tennis holiday.

Please see here if interested in downloading tennis matches.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low .

Re: Have you ever been to a Live Tennis Tournament?

US Open 2001
US Open 2002
Cincinnati 2005
Toronto 2006


I was busy having children in 03 and 04


Met Andre at the 01 Open. Met Roger in Cincy last year (where, as many of you know, I humiliated myself horribly).

I think I'm gonna go to the US Open next year again. The early rounds are especially cool, since you never know what you might come upon. I was at that match where Lleyton Hewitt made racial slurs about that black linejudge when a call went James Blake's way. It was VVEEERRRYYYY interesting. The crowd was furious.

I'm going to get to RG one of these days. I'm SO JEALOUS!

Did you get to see Rafa play live? Everytime I go to a tournament, Rafa loses before I have a chance to see him.

On second thought.........maybe I SHOULDN'T go to RG.

I was at the final in 2005
and I saw him practicing several times this year (twice on the charity day and once the day before the final )
