Should I Buy Tickets for Carson?

My company is one of the sponsors of the tourney in Carson. I love Vee and Serena and only want to pay to see either or both of them. Tix are $30 and today is the deadline. Not sure if the sisters will withdraw...

if you are a real tennis fan then you will buy tickets regardless. Even without your faves it will still be a good show.

I went to Stockholm to see Vee last year..

I wouldn't have any expectations if I were you

1. Venus Williams
2. Na Li
3. Serena Williams
4. Jelena Jankovic
5. Ai Sugiyama

I don't think any of the matches there will be a sell out,
they should be paying you to go.

Which is too bad. Ever since they moved it out of
Manhattan Beach they've had problems w/crowds
for the event. Move it back. The mens day events
were not good either, but, that was mainly due to
105 degree days. Who wants to sit outside in that?

So many players have dropped out. But, there should
still be some very good tennis going on. Don't they
put on some kind of fan friendly things for the
tournament on the grounds? Go and give us a
report.



Fortunately, the weather has cooled down a lot!
You'll have a better experience there.

the crowds have actually been bigger at carson then at manhattan beach. the fact that the carson stadium is much bigger than the manhattan stadium gives the idea that the crowds are smaller. carson is not sold out until the quarters. after the quarter tickets are hard to come by. but yeah you should defenitely go. there are going to be a lot of big names. its going to be great.
