good luck Vinci and that poor Alexander Flock who twisted his ankle in Szczecin and his stupid opponent from Czech Republic whoever he was, started laughing at him.

Re: WEEK 40 : Challenger Mons, Belgium US$125,000+H

btw tickets for a challenger in Szczecin 1st round cost less than 1 Euro and there cost 4 Euro, final in Poland was for around 8 Euro and in Belgium you can only buy a ticket for a QF for that money... goshhh these prices are similar to Sopot ATP event! (correction, QF's in Sopot are cheaper... but at least you can see Coria)

That means that tickets are pretty cheap in Poland Scheveningen and Groningen Challenger tickets were more expensive than Mons.

Yeah, there are so many poor people in Polen. It's sad that people in Europe have to live like that. In Holland we have a lot of Polish workers who work for less than half the money that's a earned by the same Dutch workers! Nathalii, I hope you will ever have the possibility to move to a nice European country like Holland.

Grtz!

Re: WEEK 40 : Challenger Mons, Belgium US$125,000+H

Oh, actually I'm quite surprised about this fuss! I only said how much are the tickets here! For example access to a big challenger in my university city Wrocław is for free, I think it's nice and it's a good way to make tennis more popular, as it isn't too much popular here.

Jorisj you are right that they are many Polish workers in your country, who even don't know now they have a possibility to be legally employed, they don't know the language and stuff... but still it doesn't mean I'd like to be sold to Turkish "night club" for some v-cash. And I kind of don't understand these young people who study here courses like law, medicine, journalism and the others, who come to Holland or mainly UK, to sell hot-dogs or clean the windows. I have enough self esteem to do something for less money here in my country but enough prestigeuos and paid enough to keep the living level I'm used to, as my parents are very good lawyers and I can't say we're not well situated. If I had to work abroad or travel abroad because eg. I fall in love one day with a foreigner, I could do only something what I have passion for, like writing novels, or even being a lawyer (I study this course) after getting required preparations and language skills. Maybe I can't look from the other's perspective, but I fully realize Poland is a Brazil of Europe and I call myself sensitive for social problems. Me being quite spoiled (however I've never got anything I wanted, I wouldn't even dare to ask), never had to work. I had my first job last week, at Szczecin's challenger press office, but it was more like a hobby.

And I have no doubt Holland is a beautiful country with friendly people... I will come there one day, maybe even next year... but as a tourist. (first I need to save up from my scholarship for dreamed travel around Spain and Portugal, and going to Sopot tourney ).
