What tournaments are you planning on attending next year?

Who's going where?

I've got five days in Miami again in '10, as well as a box seat for the week at Ponte Vedra. Also considering a couple of days in NY for the Open. Who else has plans to attend tournaments in person?

Heidi El Tabakh Allie Kiick* Monica Puig * Laura Robson * Bernarda Pera *Jovana Jaksic *

Cincinnati for sure.

I used to travel to others (Charleston x2, Indian Wells, Amelia Island) in years past, but I kinda doubt it this coming year due to my work situation (or should I say, lack-of-work situation ).

If things go really well for me work-wise in 2010, maybe Bali?!?! I can dream, .

How was that? I'm considering going next year since the tickets are quite cheap.

Re: What tournaments are you planning on attending next year?

well my partner enjoyed it and he's not even a tennis fan so i guess that's a good sign!

it seems like a well organized event: you can watch the players practice, easily get autographs....i attended quarter-finals day on centre court, there weren't many empty seats left, really good atmosphere with a mixed aged group. there was a nice restaurant overlooking one of the courts which offered a good selection of food where you can eat and watch a match at the same time! and there's also a crepe stall selling yummy pancakes, we even got a free one! plus the usual promotional stalls/shops etc

my only problem was that the centre court grass set off my hayfever big time, but the st.john's ambulance crew were very helpful and the site doctor gave me anti-histamines which sorted me right out in time for the sharapova match!

Probably the French Open once again.

Maybe Luxembourg, never was there but I'm living at only 93 km.

And Metz but that's ATP.

Re: What tournaments are you planning on attending next year?

I always go to the US Open, usually 3 sessions or so.
I went to the Pilot Pen this year (and saw Nando and Caro win!) but I don't know if I'm going to go again, it depends if there are players I like there.
Once I am older (I can't even drive...) I will definitely go all over the US for tournaments and perhaps to other Grand Slams.
