I am planning to go this year, since I missed last year. Two years ago, I met Rod Laver and he signed my Adidas white jacket. The modesty of the champion was very disarming. I also saw Nadal vs. Tsonga, Djokovic vs. Canas, Federer vs. Ljubicic, Sharapova vs. Hantuchova. What a great day for me! Hope this year will be as good, or better.
Maybe some tennisopolis'ers should all go together, one day, I dunno...

tennisbum, I see that beautiful grass court every year and I have never seen anyone on it - so I figured that the court fee must be really high. Do you remember how much it is?
@Tim, the courts are real popular (especially that weekend), so you can only get on one for one hour. They are fully booked. You can usually get a court if you go early enough, but they are strict about the 1 hour thing.
Planning to be there this year. Like the idea of a meet-up to hit some balls, socialize etc.
How do we get this idea off the ground ?
I'll be there too! Last year, I met a few Tennisopolites at the outdoor margarita place on the east side of the stadium and had a couple drinks and sat in the lawn watching the big screen. We need to come up with a date on which many of us will be there. I figure the middle Sat or Sunday would be good.
How does this sound?
I hear ya. Your motor home friend is hard core....I like it!
I'll be at the tournament the middle Saturday, both day and night sessions,
and will definitely be drinking margaritas :-)
