Here I am, thinking that I must be the only one already thinking about Cincy, but no, you beat me to it.

We'll definitely be going again. The tickets are already bought (well, the deposit is paid), and we've already decided to switch hotels.

Apparently, they've redone all the box seats on Center. Although we're not sitting in them, I'm very curious to see how they look.

I just picked my seats yesterday, so I am officially going, my first time there. Just need to pick a hotel now. Any suggestions? Something decent, not too expensive, within 15 miles or so.

I got a hotel reservation, finally. Yes, I am a procrastinator, but at least I didn't wait until the week before to do it like I usually do.

I wish I could. The gorgeous blonde twins who play tennis or otherwise known as TTTs are not going cuz I am not. Too much on my plate at the moment this summer and I am debating on meeting a friend at the USOpen.
Did you not tell me the steakhouse closed? :( Food was so good :drool:

Anyone been to the draw ceremony and dinner? Is it worth going to? Can you take in food/water (besides the one bottle they say on the website)? I know they say you're not allowed for another tourney I went to and I took in 4-5 bottles of water, sandwiches, snacks, as long as they weren't in a cooler and no one checking bags said anything.

I will be there and have never met any of you. I do know cobalt and am sad she is not going. This will be my sixth year. As you can tell by my signature, I will be at Jurgen Melzer's matches for sure and all doubles mataches that involve Julian Knowle.

If you see an old lady hobbling along it will most likely be me.

I go to the draw party every year, and it's interesting, at least. The food and drink is plentiful (if not very vegetarian friendly) and if nothing else, it's a great way to kick off the tournament.

As for the food and bottles of water you want to take in, they are really strict. I actually had a guy make me pour out my ice cubes last year! I was pissed, needless to say. They do search the bags, and the only food I've tried to take in was well concealed, so I don't know how they'd react to say, a sandwich. Likely, you'd have to eat it or lose it. That's one of my few, but biggest, complaints about the tournament.

Talked to someone from the ticketing office last weekend, and she said that the series tickets were sent to the post office on Friday, which means they should start arriving late this week. I can't wait!

I've been at the tournament every year since 2002 - helps that I live less than 5 miles from the site - and I've managed to smuggle in grapes, granola bars, energy bars, and a banana.

Yes the Brazilian steakhouse has been closed for months but they haven't taken the name off the building yet. :shrug:

I'll miss Sue and the twins - didn't meet Fee nor Jerry last year.

Barbara I've met you a couple of times over the years.

The weather has been relatively cool with lots of sudden storms - not sure if in a month's time we will back to the 90s with constant sun and humidity or not. Will be strange having the tournament so early this year. Anyhow since I'm a townie let me know if you have any questions or need help.

Thank you! Very helpful! Sounds like they are picky about the food and drink thing. And thanks for the info on the tickets, I was about to call them myself. :wavey:

Ahh, thanks, maybe I can get in a granola bar or two. ;) Sounds more strict than the Legg Mason tourney, for sure. I figure I can at least get a bottle of water, then take in those flavor packets and just refill at a sink or water fountain and that's fine with me. I have to be cheep since I'm spending all my money on gas to and from Ohio :eek:

Tickets are arriving. Warning: there is a signature confirmation on these series ticket packages, so if someone isn't home to sign for it, you have to probably pick them up at the post office, which is where I am about to go.

I go pretty much every year, but I'm on the fence this year because of the Olympics...how many players do you think are going to skip Cincy to head over a bit early for the olympics?...i really hope the top guys stay for this tournament but in the past a lot of the best have lost early because of the back to back situation with the canadian masters...since the olympics are happening this year, in addition to everything else, the players may be looking ahead to the US open and not wanting to risk getting burned out before the major...seems like Cincy is right in the middle and a possible skipper for the best players...i really want to go, but i don't want to be there if none of the best are there...what do you guys think.

My feeling is the top guys play the canadian masters and then skip cincy and head over to the olympics and then head back to new york for the open...
