Lightbulb **Where are you going in 2006? The tournament trips thread**

Since we have been discussing tournaments in all the other threads, I thought we might as well start a thread to devote to this so we can get advice/coordinate meeting up.

So here are my plans:

Roland Garros - 1st 5 days (Sunday - Thursday)
Lexington (KY, USA) challenger - 1 or 2 days either qualies or finals weekend
Cincinnati - all 10 days (Friday night seniors - final Sunday)
US Open - middle weekend (Friday - Monday)

Titles: 2005 - PAW Washington 2006 - PTS Marseille, TT Miami Doubles(w/coreyschucky), TT Tokyo Singles 2007 - TT Hamburg Doubles(w/SarettaFan) 2008 - TT Indianapolis Singles Finalist: 2005 - PAW Montreal & Bucharest 2006 - TT Acapulco Singles & Doubles(w/Iza), TT Houston Doubles(w/robrulz5), PTS Monte Carlo, TT Barcelona Doubles(w/Peta Pan), TT Newport Doubles(w/adee-gee), PAW Umag 2007 - TT Queen's Singles & Doubles(w/SarettaFan), TT Champaign Doubles(w/TommyB.) 2008 - TT Auckland Doubles(w/invu2day), TT Recanati Singles, TT Newport Doubles(w/sploush), TT Indianapolis Doubles(w/sploush)

Re: **Where are you going in 2006? The tournament trips thread**

I'm not sure of where i will go, but these are my plans for 2006:
(confirmed tournaments in red)

Monté-Carlo: quallies+ 2 or 3 days
Barcelona: the whole week
Roland garros: saturday=>tuesday of the first week then the next week-end
Gstaad: sunday+monday+tuesday (+saturday+sunday if Gaston is still on)
Stuttgart or Kitzbuhel (or some days on each tournament)
Lyon: the whole week (It's my town )
Bercy: tuesday and wednesday

If Gaston decided to cancel some of these tournaments, i will immediately do the same... He's not the only one reason for me to go to a tournemant but i won't travel anywhere if he's not... understand?

Re: **Where are you going in 2006? The tournament trips thread**

Great idea So far - my only DEFINATES are:-

Roland Garros 1st week - Sunday-Friday
Wimbledon - couple of days in the 1st week (just a few minutes from home for me!)

However - I have plans for LOTS more - which I will decide nearer the time - most likely of these being:-

Monte Carlo (quallies and 1st 2 days)
Either Munich or Estoril (it's my birthday that week so will definately go to one of them - just not sure which so far!)
Either Stuttgart or Kitzbuhel in the Summer
Madrid Masters (quallies and 1st 2 days)

Something tells me you may be right I just wish I could go to Barca this year too - just have to wait and see! One of the good things about living in London during the European clay court season (sorry to all my US friends ) is that nowhere is more than a couple of hours away, so if the mood takes me I can leave work on a Friday afternoon and be at quallies on Saturday morning!!

Re: **Where are you going in 2006? The tournament trips thread**

- well I already went to the Hopman Cup this week (and am going to the final tonight)

- Aus Open (qualies until halfway through second week, so about 2 weeks in total)...am leaving on Wednesday!!!

- not sure if there will be a Challenger on in Barcelona while i'm there in August, don't think so, but if there is i will think about going to it!

- more than likely US Open middle weekend

- possibly Bangkok at the end of September

Jealous...

Stuck here in the States with only hardcourt tournaments.

But happy too for you and the other lucky people that live in the UK and Europe.

Thanks sweetie Clay is definately the prettiest - and I don't just mean the players - I mean the whole "picture postcard" idea of red clay/blue sky etc

Going to RG first week tuesday-wednesday-thursday.
Miami Masters don't know how many days yet.
Possible LA.

Had big plans for going to Vina del Mar but it fell through for this year. Hopefully next year I will be able to make it. (and David to!!)

Echoing Lynn's thoughts and just hope all you Europeans realize how lucky you are.

Newport is on grass right after Wimby, and Houston is clay before Monte Carlo but I think I heard rumors it was switching from red to the green American stuff. Haven't really heard any glowing reports from either.

We can't place tennis bets online because it is illegal for us. So far our only ideas on how to get easy money is winning the lottery and getting a roommate.

And did I mention my vLove (lives in France) is one of those gamblers? He's buying a puppy that isn't even born yet for 1000 euros.

Pathetic, isn't it?

We were born in the wrong country. I know I was at least.

I heard that too about Houston - not that I would go there anyway because none of the really good clay players go there - they are over in Europe.

Sorry girls - I know that I, for one, am very well aware of how lucky I am!! And I do tennis betting all the time though I'm not very good at it

Re: **Where are you going in 2006? The tournament trips thread**

I only got tickets for the 1st Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday for Roland Garros.

I am probably going to the qualies weekend of Indianapolis (even though I know David won't play there) and then the rest of that week I'll be at WTA Cincinnati.

My other plans haven't changed.
