Well the people actually working the tournament (who were all volunteers I believe) were just sweet as could be. SO NICE, really.

She knew when certain players liked to practice, how they went about things, etc. They were willing to do anything for you, really. It was my first live tennis experience and they helped make it even more fun than I expected

Really, it's a great little tournament, it's sooooo small and sooooo intimate, it's great. The only thing I hope the new management changes is the abysmal website

I don't know what to expect for the tournament. The forecast for next 5 days is showers. The rain may be on and off so....

First, so far this year, the area has 3 times the normal rainfall, (yes, I plan to have my car washed for the last 3 weeks and there wasn't any 4 consecutive days without rain) thus, I hope next year will be better.

Second, January and February are the months with most tourists in the area, so that's the reason for the tournament and PGA tours and numerous activities in the city of Scottsdale scheduled in these 2 months.

Third, the tournament was kept bumped up in the calendar especially when TMS IW became a 2 weeks event. If TMS Miami and Indian Wells are one week event like the rest, it will be much better for the tournament to be sandwiched between the two which make excellent sense geographically.

And hopefully, with TTC taking full control of the tournament next year, at least I think the website will be better Although the tournament already named Tennis Channel Open, this year is still run by the IMG (is this the name?)

I won't get into gossip but I will say that she was seen supporting Alex in Dallas. Alex has also been having lower back problems (had it treated during his match in Dallas). I think there is a mess of things going on with him. I'm going to believe and stay positive that this tourney could be a turning point for him in the year. If he's healthy (and the rain stays away )...he should get to the QFs.

I don't know if any visitors to this forum are going but if you do and you see Alex's match...please contact me at the address on his website so I can add a match report .

That means getting past either Carlsen or Blake. I don't think he'll manage.

Tommy Haas will be the winner. Mario Ancic will be tired after his flight from Europe. Not good tournament at all. All looks at Dubai.

Is it possible that there is a fault in the main draw?
Because Xavier Malisse is in the players list, but not in the draws?

Hmm, and yea he did play last year. But, he's definitely not in the draw... maybe he pulled out but before the draw was made so he doesn't show up as a withdrawal
