Will do - sat here watching 2nd IW SF

Great to see Del Potro back - Nadal just too strong. I'm going for a Djockovic Nadal final tomorrow but would love RF to prove me wrong

Press pass..

usually allows you to enter Press Tent, Press Area and all courts...
some, the really good ones for special press members, also allows you to enter the Players Lockers

Thought this was a Nadull Troll thread at first. Something like how he will monte carlo without losing a game.

:D congrats mate!!! You are so lucky! Record and witness as many press conferences as you can and if you have some time, ask for as many interviews with players as you can get. Sometimes you can have some one-on-one ones :)

if this is your first time, Id advise to look for the not so high profile players at first so you will get rythm and experience with nicer players :) (the higher your ranking gets the less friendly they become to strangers)

Also, mind the player's annual reunion! There you will get tons of questions to ask and different points of view (regarding press conferences for e.g.) and you can ask players what they really think about hot topics since they'll be on the table on that week

Contacts I'm afraid to say. Chris Bowers, who does commentary on Eurosport, wrote a bio of Federer. He helped me with the Federer section of my book and pointed me in the right direction.

Sadly though, the same approach hasn't enabled me to obtain a Press Pass for Wimbledon - yet!

Have a great time a Monte Carlo!

I think I'll apply for credentials for Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne 2012. I just hope I get one!

Best of luck with that - I didn't get one for Wimbledon- yet! But I do getna coaches pass into the grounds, but would be nice to get onto Centre or Court No.1 - will be working hard to wangle one.

Will check out your articles - google me and check out mine

I wanted to go on Sunday for the finals but I guess I'm a bit late. Is there really no other way to get tickets than through the official website?
