It's great - I go every year. It's very personal. Last year I sat on a bench with my friend and over came Anastasia Myskina and sat down next to us and started reading her book! We had a chat and took a photo and got her autograph and we then left to go watch Kim Clijsters play.

I was walking across the green chatting to Alicia Molik!

That's what it's like - it's great. I'm going this year again and we're staying over in a hotel and going on the first Tuesday and Wednesday.

The final will be a great day. You will enjoy it!

It's a beautiful tournament - lovely to watch the players practice.

I always go for the Tues, Weds and Thurs.

It's always nice to be by the sea as well!

I was there last year for the QF and the Final, very nice I loved it

You mean you don't have white hair, a slight hunch, and need a zimmer to help you get about?!
