:eek: i don't know if this is the norm for true tennis fans, but i've never been able to spend 12 hours at a tournament every day for the entire week, not in my life! lol i'm so impressed!

(i do get tired of too much tennis, and too many tennis boys/girls :tape: )

i don't think so, but if you sneak one in and try using it, you may be able to get away with it. just don't blame me if that doesn't work! :p

hand held cameras are fine but tripods are not, unless on the free saturday when you can get away with a lot of things.

I've used one before (at the practice courts) ;) and I've seen others use it on the outside courts. Just be a little discreet I suppose!

if they let any wildlife loose, i'd be the first to run. no, perhaps arnaud runs faster :p

just been back from a morning at the qualies but due to my delicate state, didn't get to wander around much. couldn't stand the sun either. also didn't see anyone who looked like a forum poster!

now where's that draw ????????

Glad I stayed away from the centre court today. Not much action there with all the retirements.

Got to see the Melzer v Santoro match which was good fun and also caught Dementieva's implosion beforehand.

Might try and head out again later in the week if I get a chance, hopefully I can somehow fit it in around work!!
