Don't count on it. Weather is beautiful here now - actually, that probably means it'll be cold and rainy by the time the tournament starts. It's the same every year; it must be the "Rothenbaum curse". Bring on the long underwear, guys!

Great to see an Irish man coming over! Wear a shamrock T-shirt, I'll try to spot you!

Yes, it is And as Davis also wrote, we have great weather here now and I checked the forecast: until next wednesday we get only sun and temperatures about 22 degrees. I already know that it will be cold and rainy at least from next saturday (qualifying day) on

But anyway, I will enjoy the tournament no matter what kind of weather we will get

Tommy Robredo David Ferrer Pere Riba Fernando Verdasco

Pico Monaco ~ Edu Schwank ~ Stan Wawrinka ~ Dani Gimeno ~ David Marrero ~ Marc Lopez ~ Marco Chiudinelli ~ Marcel Granollers

I miss you on tour, Nors, Bjösse, Simon & Pim Pim

Re: Who is going?

Question about Hamburg:-
1) What is the public transport like in the city
2) Is the tennis far from the main city?

Thanks
Míchéal

Public transport is very good and frequent AND the use is included in the price of your ticket. You can use all busses and trains by presenting it (if asked).

The site is IN the city, very centrally located. No problem of getting there and away at all!

If you need a tour guide or have any more questions, PM me.

The public transport in Hamburg is very good! You can take the metro almost everywhere (and there is a metro station directly at the tennis venue, the station is "Hallerstraße"). Apart from that, there are also busses (for example, if you want to see a bit of the city as well), but I would prefer metro, it is the best and fastest way.

Here is a link to the metro plan of Hamburg:

http://www.hvv.de/pdf/fahrplaene/usa...usar_regio.pdf

There you also see that the tennis is very central and close to the central station (it is on the blue line U1). I would say it is max. 5-10 minutes from the city by metro to the tennis So very close

If you have more questions, feel free to ask

Btw, quite funny...I was also in Monte Carlo last week Though I must admit I already had better weather there than this year

Tommy Robredo David Ferrer Pere Riba Fernando Verdasco

Pico Monaco ~ Edu Schwank ~ Stan Wawrinka ~ Dani Gimeno ~ David Marrero ~ Marc Lopez ~ Marco Chiudinelli ~ Marcel Granollers

Re: Who is going?

Thanks for your info, it will be nice to see Hamburg, and also hope the final will go the full way. Do you go to allot of the tennis.

Monte Carlo-- I had a great time at the CC in Monte Carlo, and cant wait to go back next year, great views on the bus from Nice

Re: Who is going?

I'll be there, obviously (I live in Hamburg). The first Sunday for sure, and probably on 2-3 more other days.
