Is Anyone A Member Of A Club That Hosts a WTA/ATP tournament?
i'm a member of white city in sydney which used to host the adidas international but the bloody new complex at homebush took it and the davis/fed cup ties. now we only get some crappy tournaments. a lot players still practice there like pat rafter and a lot of the old greats like ken rosewell, john newcombe and wally masur (not so great) because we have some of the best grass courts in the world even though he have no tournament. todd reid is the only touring pro who is a member.
when it used to be at white city we got access to the players area and a lot of players ate in the club house. unfortunately i was only 13 or so at the time so i didn't think about hitting on anna when she was sitting across the room for me, but i got a lot of autographs.
i also hit with dokic when she was a junior because i was the age champion for the under 16s at the club. i know that sounds like bullshit buts it true.
