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?
