Amen!

I've been going since I was one year old-- My parents took us every year. And I loooooove it. But like you said, I cannot compare it to other slams czu I've never been to another. And there may be hate threads against the NYC crowd at night, but I love being a part of it.

We usually park on one of the blocks near the Open and the walk is only 5 minutes, plus you save $13 bucks. I never bring a bag with me the Open so I can save time. For the qualies, I did since there was no line at all.

Wow, you've gone for so long. When did you start actually liking tennis and understanding what was going on?

Well lucky you then. When my mom found out that I woke up on Monday at 4.30 a.m. to watch the USO final, she practically screamed at me for being 'crazy'.

I staed up til 6am to watch the Gasquet-Hewitt match! and then I couldn't sleep so I didn't end up going to bed until 8am! and I stay up watching the scoreboards and streams loads so I think I qualify as insane as well!

The things we do for tennis.

When Richard was playing last year in Monte Carlo(I think it was when he played Davydenko), I was taking a test in class and I wanted to know if he won or not. I did the test as fast as possible and then asked the teacher to go to the libarary because "I had to check my homework." I told her that it was a life or death matter.

Re: -_-_-_-_- The Gasket Blowers Chat Thread -_-_-_-_-

Some shot from his Toronto match against Murray made the Mercedes Benz Play of the Week. http://www.atptennis.com/en/mercedesbenz/

I personally don't think it was that spectacular. The one against Hewitt at the USO was 12589250925902509 times better. I wonder if they are allowed to award the Play of the Week to a player twice in a row.

Re: -_-_-_-_- The Gasket Blowers Chat Thread -_-_-_-_-

Ohh welcome back T

And hmm... Some people here, whose names i won't mention, are quite crazy indeed when it comes to tennis

Silver.
That sucks O_o
Thankfully all i've got on my computer is pictures (TONS of them) so even if the thing crashes, it won't be nearly as bad...

*I'm back to university... That's why i haven't been coming so much... And in my spare time i just go to the cinema or read - i don't even follow what's going on with tennis anyway *
