US Open, here I come

I've done it, I've booked my flights to NY. I'll be in NY for the first week of the US Open, still need to get my US Open tickets but will get them soon.

I'm officially insane.

And if anyone else who's going to the US Open wants to meet this crazy Belgian, let me know.

I might, might be going maybe to qualifying and the first day or two. My aunt wants me to work on her computer for her and I keep saying I will go up and look at it. I just haven't gotten my plans together, yet.

I'll be there starting at least with Thursday. Whether I'll be there the first three days of the week is still unclear. Tickets for the first week should not be a problem at this point, but if you would want to go some days of the first weekend, you'd better hurry. They ( especially Saturday ) are usually sold very quickly.

And, of course, I'd love to meet you, Tine..

I'd like to get grounds tickets for the first two or three days.

Great to hear you're making things happen. Hope you have a good time.

I also hope I'll be able to follow your example and go there myself somewhere in the coming years.

I'm looking at the tickets now, the problem is that I don't know how to order tickets for two days in one go. I don't feel like paying all that surcharge stuff twice.

You can call 1-866-OPEN-TIX to order all tickets you need in one shot.

I will be there Sunday before openning day, and planning to attend two night sessions probably Tuesday and Wed, plus I will be there on Saturday night (first week). Let me know how we can meet. I can suggest two spots - one, results board right in front of Arthur Ashe stadium, or second one - Fila Store at Armstrong Stadium. Day and time is up to you.

Will see you there,
Eugene.

Forever Jen's Fan

That's not a phone number that works from here. We don't have letters on our phones.

I wonder, if I was to ask a NY friend to get the tickets for me, would that work? Or are the security measures so high these days that you need tickets with your own name on them?

That's the best idea. If you can have someone to buy it form you right at Flushing, that is perfect, no surcharges.

I would love to go someday... but it's always the first week of school. I'll probably never attend a tennis tourney. I hate my life

I'm a young girl, an old WTAWorld member.

The good thing about Kim and Justine doing so well, is that all of a sudden people start to understand what I was making such a noise about for all these years. Finally they understand that tennis is important, very important!

2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
