I just emailed something to Higherlaw, I copied it from my mail and additions & pics will come when I'm back home sunday
We're going to do sight seeing in the city tomorow, because I've never been to such a boring tournament before. You have to go outside to go to court 1 and that court is even smaller than centre court at the Aachen Challenger. The OOP is also very unlogical, today there were 2 doubles scheduled for the evening, but not with an exact time. So we asked when they started and they told us at about 7-8 pm. That really wasn't possible, because Simon had to play his singles at centre at 7 pm. And according to those people he had to start his doubles at the same time, I told them it wasn't possible, but they said it was, because it was scheduled at different courts. But hey, Simon can't split himself in half, can he? After that doubles match was another scheduled and matches should be finished at midnight. The weird thing being that all day court 1 was closed! We left after Simon's match, because we didn't feel like waiting for the doubles to start. The last metro/bus goes back around 0:00, so we couldn't see the two doubles.
There is also nothing else to do in between matches, access to the lounge, bar, village, etc is only for VIP tickets. Training courts are nowhere to be found near the tournament. Waiting for players at that door was also a little useless, we saw Simon arriving and Murray leaving, so in a whole afternoon only 2 players! When we walked back to centre court we saw Youzhny getting out of a car and Mahut leaving. But Youzhny really was eager to get inside and Mahut was flirting with a girl, so we didn't bother those two.
That was about it for the day. I tried to ask Thierry Tulasne after Gilles' match if he knew someting about Arno and Bruno coming to the tournament tomorrow, but the only thing he could tell me was that Arno has a "bad foot". I guess he will be with his parents lying on the couch and get his mummy to bring him cookies and milk, lol.
That was the email, I decided I will never go here for the tournament if it isn't sure that Arno is still here also
