How do you get Credentials for US Open 2003?

I was just hoping some of you would be able to help me out......

I am probably going to go to the US Open 2003 and was wondering if it would be possible if I started soliciting websites now I might be able to get a media pass or something.

I'd be willing to go up any of the days, and write stories, for sure, if I was accepted.

So, anyone willing to help a good friend out?

You wanna work for my site next year? It's worth a go, right? I'm applying to Open Gaz de France 2003 for credentials.... I'll let you know if it works.

if you can get me credentials for the US Open, i'd love to write articles and send you photos for your site! but, not to sound selfish, I don't have much time around this time of year with school starting, so I wouldnt't be able to do it if there was no incentive

Oh, and how do you go about getting credentials? I'm sure we could get them with Mikey's work on smashnova.com. If only we knew how.....

SEDUCTION, works everytime. Use it wisely, and most importantly, use it responsibly.

Sorry, I'm slow today...
You need to contact the tournament director usually 3-4 months in advance. They have a form for you/your employer to fill out. The request must be approved by the director and then when you arrive you need to have ID (passport usually) and get a picture badge. On the request you need to request any thing you need; as far as courtside for pics, computer work area in the lounge, etc.

Megan, what are you saying? Seduction ain't gonna work these days with al the Security around! Unless you were trying to get the media credentials! Then me thinks you've got a good chance to get media credentials! Just giving them "the look" might get you the media credentials!

Don't be silly. If you're good, security is not even a factor.

so, Seles, would I be able to get 2 credentials for smashnova.com (me and Mikey) or would they think that that's not legitimate enough?

Megan, do you want to get ASV thrown in Jail?
