I know this is probably a stupid question but...do you think that i would have to go to the box office to exchange tickets or can i use my ticket from tuesday cancelled session to enter because it doesn't say anything going to the box office to exchange tickets for this session.

you should probably go to the box office just in case.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

you would probably need to as well. i'm thinking this isn't the only time they'll do it to accomodate all those people who weren't able to see tennis during the rained out days.

"First-Ever Special Louis Armstrong Night Session" - that's not really true, to be honest. Before 1997 when the Arthue Ashe wasn't ready, and the centre court was the Armstrong every night session from 1978-96 was there...
