Thoughts?
It depends on who you want to see playing first and foremost. I'd most definitely include the 'last sixteen'-round, as you say, indeed a lot of matches to choose from. The other ones are a toss-up.

And Halle overall has rather 'cheap' tickets. Just found out that a mid-week ticket for Rotterdam costs the same as the Halle final!

why so stressed?

This is the final is just one match, and the semis are two for pretty much the same price... I think I'll pick the semis.

EDIT: In the nick of time Karin!

Yeah, I guess the semis is somehow 'two for the same price'. Though I have to say, witnessing Haas win over Djokovic last year was really awesome - most Germans thinking their home boy wouldn't have much of a chance, as expected losing the first set, then seeing him win the second set in a TB... and we know how it ended. Great experience!

That doesn't mean I'm him. its.like.that even made a whole list of similarities between me and claycourta.

There are a lot's similarities, but if they keep questioning me, the mods will ban me for being a double account. It happened with 8pNadal, modern tennis and Gaudio2004 already this year.

Well yes, but there's also the chance that the final is a 6-3 6-2 affair... I think I'll take the semis.

I'd definitely say last sixteen, as you'll get many matches and they should be good quality. As for the quarters, semis or final, will you be upset if you are forced to watch a player you don't like? If so, quarters, else weigh up the difference in ticket price for the semis/finals.

Take a deep breath. Try to relax for 5 minutes, then review and revise your study plan into something manageable

The Agassi story is just getting ridiculous now

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8335631.stm


Agassi wig collapsed before final

First wife Brooke Shields persuaded Agassi to shave his head

Former tennis star Andre Agassi wore a wig held together with pins in his first Grand Slam final, excerpts from his autobiography have revealed.

The hairpiece - in his famous mullet style - had fallen apart the night before the 1990 French Open final, which Agassi lost to Andres Gomez.

Before the match he prayed "not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off", he writes in Open.

Earlier excerpts revealed his use of drug crystal methamphetamine in 1997.

The 39-year-old, who retired in 2006, admits that - in order to escape a ban - he lied to tennis authorities that his drink had been spiked with the highly addictive drug.

Further excerpts describe his distress at the hair loss which led to him wearing a hairpiece.

"Every morning I would get up and find another piece of my identity on the pillow, in the wash basin, down the plughole," he writes.

But after the wig fell apart in the shower the night before the Paris final, his brother helped him clamp it together using about 20 clips.

Agassi writes: "Of course I could have played without my hairpiece, but what would all the journalists have written if they knew that all the time I was really wearing a wig?

"During the warming-up training before play I prayed. Not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off.

"With each leap, I imagine it falling into the sand. I imagine millions of spectators move closer to their TV sets, their eyes widening and, in dozens of dialects and languages, ask how Andre Agassi's hair has fallen from his head."

Agassi went on to win eight Grand Slams during his career and is one of only six men to win all four major titles.
