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

I've only been to Legg Mason every year since Andy Roddick turned pro and I go to at least three sessions (including the final)

I am always so close to going to the USO but busy getting ready to go to school keeps me in washingtion dc...

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

I haven't been to any yet. My schedule just never allowed me to . Will definitely be going to the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami next year as well as the Leggs Mason Tournament in DC next year

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

I went to Surbiton a couple of years ago (where I got sunburnt and walked into a glass door infront of Greg Rusedski, Wesley Moodie and Ivo Karlovic), Nottingham a couple of weeks later (where I fell over) and Wimbledon this year (where I got sunburnt and nearly choked on a strawberry). For the good of my health, I think all furture tournaments should be watched on the comparative safety of my sofa.

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

This year I went to see live tennis for the first time:

1) Eastbourne - WTA. Very hot weather and I spent the whole time slathering on sunscreen 'cos I burn way too easily.

2) Wimbledon - which I loved. Mostly, of course, because there's nothing like drinking cold Pimms on a hot day while watching Arnaud Clement play; also because I got much closer to Roger Federer than I'd hoped...mmm, Roger up close

Would love to go to more, but as a teacher it's impossible to go to tournaments that take place during the term-time. I'd definitely like to make it to the other Slams one day. Once I've done those, it'll be time to start on TMS.

Time for Pimms...

I need to hear the story of your self-humiliation!

I'm hoping to go to Cincy next year. I'd loooove to go to the USO but I can't afford both the travel and the tickets.
