Re: Nole @ Amersfoort (17th July - 23rd July) Thread!

Are qualies free? In D.C. you have to pay for them. But since there's a free shuttle, it's really like I'm just paying for the cab ride.

They are hardly ever free, around here.

In Rotterdam the price is OK, but I usually manage to get in free (and get access to centre court, which is not accessible for ordinary visitors ). In Amersfoort it's €8,50, which is reasonable, but not for what I fear they will be offering. In Rosmalen it's a ridiculous €15 And the men's qualies field is truly horrible

Also, WTA Antwerp and Hasselt are €20 and €15 or something like that It's crazy. It's almost as cheap to go to Roland Garros with a grounds pass And yes, I had to pay for Roland Garros qualies too. Wimbledon is free though.

You have to pay for quallies for both Cincy and Toronto I believe, but not for the US Open

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

I don't think your friends would like Amersfoort much. It's not a small city, but it is not very nice for young tourists. But they could stay in Amsterdam

Qualifying in D.C. is only $9 so it's really not that bad. I don't mind paying that for a day of tennis.

Nikola, make sure you cheer for him loud enough!

And if you see him afterwards, tell him that we are ALL cheering for him to the title!

I am still trying to find out whether ANYONE within my range will broadcast the whole thing but I doubt it.

I will have to settle for reading about his matches... But you go and cheer him ot the title

Well, they have some shops and such, but it's more or less an old town. Tourists that come there come for the zoo (very poor one, btw), the nature around the city, some of the old buildings and the shops. I don't know what your friends like

I recommend sleeping in the Golden Tulip Hotel (also the player's hotel). It's very nice They had delicious brownies at the breakfast buffet last year

Re: Nole @ Amersfoort (17th July - 23rd July) Thread!

Wow, this is plenty of useful info. I have been developing the concept of me going to next year's RG. The second week obviously. I feel that Nole could make some damage at that particular event and I would like to be there and witness it.

I have started collecting the info on the matter, and tossing some ideas about the best scenario. I will need some assistance from you lot.

I was at this year's RG but only for one day. And Nole was not playing that day, but I think you would enjoy it
