Yea, that time of year is really weird in Scottsdale. My parents were there for those two weeks.... the week of the tournament was horrible and we had one day at the pool and the next week when I was back in Houston my parents were still there and it was in the 80s and gorgeous all week... but even then, it gets chilly at night (especially by your standards star
) so it's just something to keep in mind at that tourney. Day and night matches are always different anyway, but in Scottsdale at that time of year it's exaggerated.
But anyway, sounds like you have some decisions to make about tourneys..poor you
IMO, the Masters isn't worth the money. It's just an outrageous amount of money and yes, it's the top 8 players and the top 8 doubles teams but it's just SO much money for not much tennis... I happened to really like the "small tourney" atmosphere where some of the 'lesser' players are more accessible and I really enjoyed that whole atmosphere that it sounded like was lost at TMC.
As for Andy's claycourt schedule... if he doesn't plan better and commit to it more, I give up! lol
