Have you been there before?
Yes, I went to the tournament in Montreal in 2001 and 2003. I also was there last summer in 2004 to see my friend try qualies in a 10K. I like Montreal.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: I'm going to this tournament.

You'll be fine, Bad Gambler. I prefer travelling alone though, so I guess that I can't really sympathize

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: I'm going to this tournament.

Montreal is a beautiful city. I should know; I see it in the distance every day. I went to the 2003 TMS CAN in Montreal, and it was wonderful (but I didn't have access to the Center Court, so I didn't see any big names...). This year, though, I might meet my idol!!


Simon Aspelin & Julian Knowle: 2007 U.S. Open Champions!!!!
Jurgen Melzer & Philipp Petzschner: 2010 Wimbledon Champions!!!
Canadian Heroes: Frank Dancevic & Milos Raonic
Elite Squad: Marat Safin - Andy Roddick - Richard Gasquet - Jérémy Chardy - Philipp Petzschner - Tommy Robredo - Marin Cilic - Juan Martin Del Potro - Dmitry Tursunov - Mikhail Youzhny - Ivan Ljubicic - Juan Monaco - Jurgen Melzer - Fernando Gonzalez
Doubles Specialists: Simon Aspelin - Julian Knowle - Max Mirnyi - Paul Hanley - Jamie Murray - Mark Knowles - Mahesh Bhupathi - Mariusz Fyrstenberg - Marcin Matkowski - Daniel Nestor- Nenad Zimonjic - Andy Ram
Retired, but never forgotten, my idol: Jonas Bjorkman

Good man and you'll like Montreal. There is plenty of nightlife there for a gambler like you.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

My brother has and I have a few friends from Quebec. I have never been to the tournament actually, myself and North American tournaments aren't the best of friends.

Don't worry about being amused, there'll be enough entertainment for you while the tennis isn't on.
