So far the commited players are:
* Andre Agassi (USA)
* Tim Henman ( GBR)
* Thomas Johansson (SWE)
* Tommy Haas (GER)
* Alex Corretja (ESP)
* Mark Phillippoussis (AUS)

2 spots remain open, one to be hold for Pete in case he decides to come down to Australia next year :)

Who do you think will fill up the spots? I hope it's Pete and Marat :)

:wavey:

Just noticed from the other thread that Marat will play in Sydney, so he's not playing in Kooyong :sad: :sad:

This year's fields are pretty strong :)
Last year, Pete won by beating Agassi in the final :)

Yevgeny is a regular player at Kooyong too... So if he's not retired next year, he might be invited :)

If Yevgeny and Pete fill the spot, it'll be a really really strong fields :)

Ooops, sorry for the misunderstanding ;)

I bought the ticket about 2 months ago I think... And it's not $40, it's $27 for the final, must be cheaper for the first 3 days :) It's not that expensive I think, considering who are playing there.

If you're going, try the first day, as it has 3 matches, then 2 matches for other days... Sometimes, they also invite some other top players to play, just for an exhibition. Last year, they have Mark P :)

oh cool ur going on the last day!! thats ok about the misunderstanding... HURRY UP AND GET THE TWO LAST PLACES DONEEEE!!!! oh yeah i was wrong its $21 for consession and $27 for adult...i was looking at the premium seating which was $44--oops! hmm $21 for three matches isn't bad but really i wouldn't be interested unless seb plays. are the *general* seats allocated?? do u reckon the first day is sold out yet??

but yeah another reason i wanna go is that i'll be away from the 14th-23rd of jan which is basically every day of the aussie open cept the first day and last 2 days or something which reallly sux but i'm going on the first day but itd be great if i could go to kooyon as well!

All seats are allocated, even though the premium one... I reckon the tickets are not sold out... Even last year, I still could buy the final ticket between Sampras-Agassi on that final day... Of course, I got a bad seat :p

Yup, Agassi-Sampras in the final, and Sampras won the match :)
I also saw Yevgeny, Alex C, Scott D, Thomas E....

It was really great :) That makes me always go to Kooyong if I have a chance :)
