Due to recent developments including Hurricane Katrina, I won't be able to go this year. Really sucks too, because I won't get to see any of it on TV since TTC is covering the Kremlin Cup (Moscow) that week.

But it's definitely on my list for 2006. Oooh, I have lots of questions. Any tips/secrets you can pass along to someone to who's never been there before (the tournament nor Sweden)? What's the atmosphere at the tourney like? Is all the seating reserved? I assume most Swedes speak English, at least all the Swedish tennis players seem to speak it really well . My Spanish is passable but I don't think it'd come in handy there. Is the qualifying held at the same site as the main tournament?

Thanks in advance.
