Re: Week 21 - Surbiton, England

I have spoken to Casey Dellacqua and Nicole Sewell and they reckon the courts and venue there is great and that most of players love it and will be coming back again this year!

Hopefully another good draw, hope to see philippoussis here getting a few matches under his belt!

mate can u provide us with reports for mens and ladies matches?

Re: Week 21 - Surbiton, England

Ok mr eastabrook i am now considering going to surbiton! i have monday and thursday free! plus the weekend of qualies! (although i need to revise, but i suppose i could revise on the train considering it will be 2 hours to london! so 3-4 hours a day should be ok lol, i doubt i can manage any more).

Now the only trouble is i need two trains which means i can only get there at gone 11 maybe and play starts at 11 ! and it says its 1.5 miles away, so if i walk its gonna take 20-30 minutes? do you know how much the buses are the main station? and how often they come?

I know surbiton has a centre court and doesnt sell grounds passes! but if i decided to go onto the outside courts say arriving at 11.30 (would there be much chance of getting a seat?). I cant get any earlier trains unless i pay like 40£ for the train lol, so i would have to settle for arriving abit late and missing some play

Saturday, sunday and monday are free! im not sure about thursday though

Re: Week 21 - Surbiton, England

Yeah man you have a very good chance of getting a seat-the courts are rarely EVER full, I don't know if I've ever seen a full court at Surbiton. With regards to buses, they don't take you to the venue, but I walk there in about 5-10 mins from the station, but I take my bike on the train so takes about 1/2 mins from station to venue. It's a relatively small station, but easy to find from.

Re: Week 21 - Surbiton, England

It's week 22 dude.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
