My work is at several stations from the stadium so I'm very close. I'm going to make a tour around on sunday. Fernando will arrive tomorrow maybe in Paris. I have my tickets for two days, then, it will depend on the program. I'd like to see him playing in doubles, but I'm almost sure that he won't play the doubles here.
