1st matches were not interesting for me but I decided to watch the match Calatrava vs Roitmann on the No. 2 court. At the beginning of the match there were only a few people. After the end of the match on center court the small courts suddenly became full. It was strange!
I stayed there until the end of the match of Daniele. Then I watched the rest of the match Agustin vs Julien. I didn't go to the center court.
If the doubles match would have started earlier, I could have watched 2nd set, too. I was sitting in the 5th or 6th row and saw the girls who took pics of Nico. I'm looking forward to your pics, Kezzi.
BTW, the Belgian are your neighbours. I understand people who don't have fav. players cheer easy for the neighbours.
Don't mind, finally Nico and Alex won!
I saw a little of the Roitman vs Calatrava match too, I thought it was very funny sometimes
The smaller courts only became full when the matches on centre were over, there was some time between those matches, so I think the people from centre all came to the smaller courts, because they had nothing else to do.
I was in Amersfoort especially for Nico, because I also saw Benneteau in 's Hertogenbosch and Scheveningen. I think Amersfoort is really expensive for me, it costs me almost €40 alltogether (to get there by train and for the ticket).
I usually don't cheer for my neighbours or for the Dutchies
. I cheer for the player(s) I like the most when I don't have a real fav
