If I won the lottery and could do this, this would be my fantasy schedule!

Week 1: Would go to Doha to start off the year in style
Week 2: Would go to Auckland as would be spending two weeks in Australia
Week 3/4: Would be at the first grand slam of the year in Melbourne
Week 5: Off to Chile for the week to see the first claycourt tournament
Week 6: Would go to wherever GBR are playig Davis Cup (or if not go to wherever the best action is)
Week 7: Would go to Brazil and be in the sun
Week 8: Stay in South America and visit Argentina
Week 9: As I love Mexican food, it would have to be Acapulco
Week 10: Love a little flutter so would go to Las Vegas!
Week 11-14: Would be visiting the Masters tournaments in Indian Wells and Mimai
Week 15: Depending if GBR are playing go and support them, if not the best action again!
Week 16: Probably Houston, but depends where Davis Cup is held and where would be nearest!
Week 17: Monte Carlo (live in style for the week!)
Week 18: Barcelona would seem the sensible choice!
Week 19/20: Would visit the Claycourt Masters in Rome and Hamburg
Week 21: Think the World Team Cup seems the more interesting and exciting choice
Week 22/23: Two weeks watching Roland Garros!
Week 24: Queens has better action than Halle in my eyes, so would go there
Week 25: Nottingham, then can be close to friends for a week!
Week 26/27: Wimbledon. Two glorious weeks of strawberries and cream and classic grass action!
Week 28: Bstad - just to visit Sweeden!
Week 29: Indianapolis - probably just would be bored of clay by then!
Week 30: Canada Masters!
Week 31: Cincinnati MastersMore great action from the top players!
Week 32: Would visit L.A.!
Week 33: Definitley fly to visit the Olympics; would be great to see the medal ceremony!
Week 34: Would be knackered, but would go to New Haven as its the only tournament
Week 35-36: US Open, last grand slam of the year in sunny NYC
Week 37: Bucharest - visit Romania for first time and enjoy the final claycourt tournament
Week 38: Go to India for first time and check out Mumbai
Week 39: Bangkok - not worth going back to Beijing again!
Week 40: Tokyo - and could check out friends in Japan!
Week 41: Moscow - love Russian girls and would be great to see Russia and joint ATP/WTA tournament
Week 42: Madrid Masters
Week 43: Basel would be the choice
Week 44: Paris Masters
Week 45: Shanghai to see the best eight men

GO HOME KNACKERED BUT WITH MANY PHOTOS AND MEMORIES!

What would everyone elses schedule look like?

Would love to do Shanghai and the AO looks great. Dubai too.

Rome and RG - am tempted but have heard they're impossible to get into.

Australian Open and Sydney maybe. Wimbledon again. Queens Club. Rotterdam, Vienna.

If I had the money, I'd also travel for three years, so I could visit all the tournaments. For now I hope to get tickets for RG, and I'll probably be visiting the tournaments in the Netherlands (Rotterdam, Ordina Open and maybe Amersfoort although I'm not sure about that one yet), since they're within an hour or two from where I live.

All the four Slams, plus the TMS events in Monte Carlo and Rome, and maybe Dubai. I'd also like to see a Davis Cup tie in Argentina or Chile. Of course I'd like to visit other places such as Las Vegas or Stockholm but I probably wouldn't bother with the tennis there.

CyBorg
02-14-2008, 09:36 PM
Monte Carlo, Madrid on clay, Roland Garros, St. Petersburgh (because I love the city).

Actually almost anything with red clay. The South American events sound so inviting. I'd love to go to Brazil, for example.

MM Tournament- Probably Auckland. It is so far from Europe , and I have never been to Australia nore NZ.
Masters. Indian Wells- it is in the desert and it is in California.
Slams- I was once and I am probably going again to Paris. I think that is the biggest of all Slams.

Melbourne, All England Club, Dubai and Paris Bercy.

Yeah exactly. I'd just follow Ferrero around, and when he's not playing, I'd go watch Robredo. They generally play at the events I'd want to attend anyway.

~*BGT*~
02-14-2008, 10:13 PM
All the GS, all the MS, TMC, Olympics, Queen's Club, Barcelona, Dubai, Las Vegas, Dubai, Los Angeles, Washington, and other MM in France and Asia.

ALL the GS, but Wimbledon and Roland Garros first - getting All Access passes for the complete tournament. :angel:

Roland Garros and Wimbledon. In that order.


Australian Open,

I have never been to an ATP tournament before, just WTT, but I'm going to Indian Wells in March for the second week of the tournament as a college graduation gift from my mom :woohoo: We've got main stadium tickets for day/evening sessions. I'm counting down the days!

Anyway, back to the question - My most elaborate choice would be to attend Wimbledon.

scoobs is right. if I had the $$$ i would go see each tournament atleast once...
the clay tourneys preceding RG more than once...
GS and TMC every year...

02-15-2008, 07:20 AM
1. Rome
2. Wimbledon
3. AO
4. Dubai
5. Monte Carlo

There's no way I'd hit up EVERY tournament. Why would I ever skip Queen's Club or Halle just to go to Sopot? No offense, Poland, but the grass "season" is just too short...
