Re: Player's practice times and courts?

wow, so you can't even see those 4 practice courts? because of fence covers and trees? that sucks....

I dont plan on going the first day....i am going on Thursday (Aug 31).... so hopefully it won't be too crazy that day....i am hoping roger has a match that day!

thanks Fee for your advice. it is good to know that he practiced last year at the courts closest to Ashe Stadium

Most players will have a warm up hit anywhere from 1 - 3 hours before their match (depends on the player and the time of the match) so that might give you an idea of what time to head over to the practice courts to look for him. I would not go out to the back courts looking for Fed, I doubt he will ever be there. If you are going on the first day, be prepared to be a part of a very large, poorly managed crowd.

Wear plenty of sunscreen and comfortable shoes, and let us know out it works out for you.
