Also, last year laptops were not allowed in the stadium, due to betting issues. Most likely the same rule will apply this year, just a reminder!

Oh, well I will see you around. I assume that you live in Austin or Dallas. Also, if you need any help with ticket information feel free to let me know.

NO, but I've wanted to go for years!! I have less of an incentive to play now that Andy doesn't play there anymore and it looks like James may not be there either. But seeing Hewitt in person might be cool and the Big Isner if he's still there by the weekend. :)

Yes, because it has been moved to River Oaks Country Club where I play, they don't have Matress Mac. He always loved Andy, but I have heard rumors from sources saying that last year the cost for Roddick would have been too much. But this year because there are a series of A.T.P. evens in the United States before Houston, I think Andy will play. Also, James will come I am 90% sure. He loves Houston and we love him. John Isner was not as exciting in person as you would think, at first when he arrives everyone is at his practice court. On the last day there were about four people watching him.

~*BGT*~ you said in the Challenger Forum thread for the challenger in Baton Rouge the same week that you were going to that tournament. Which one are you going to?

I don't know. It depends who will play where. Sounds as if everyone is going to Houston. :(

Im not very familiar with the qualies in this tourney, is admission free the weekend before main draw play begins? Im interested in hopefully catching Willy, Fognini, and even Chardy at least practicing.

great, do you know what time things kick off on the Saturday of qualies?

Not too sure. During the private event it started on Friday, but now that it it an A.T.P. event, it starts Saturday morning around 10:30 a.m. When the O.O.P. is released for that Saturday I will post the time here. Also, they do not sell food/lunch during the qualifying, so bring something or plan to go during the lunch break.

What is the parking like? I was there when it was an exhibition and you had to park on the street and walk. I know they have kids with bikes pulling a carrage you can ride, but there was really no decent place to park.

Thats all changed this year. River Oaks totally reconstructed their courts, tearing them up and starting from scratch. Also, they built a parking garage, so parking won't be any worries this year ;) Are you coming?

Vinchinzo, I need to know if Gato will be in town!, can you get us an update???? I am already going to the Tennis Express meet/greet with Willy and if Gaudio was in town, surely they would try to get him there also.

I am not sure. I will ask tomorrow, but as far as he know he is playing anywhere that he can get a W.C. So if they off him one, I am sure he will come. Also, I am a bit confused, who is 'Willy?'
