The total can be pretty stiff when you add up several sessions. At least you're happy if you get to see your faves up close.

Lucky you. I bought my tickets weeks ago and I'm afraid I'm stuck with them.

Why is sunday free but saturday not free?
The tournament i normally go to is the Aus Open and its much cheaper than that if you take my estimate of money conversions into account

What?!!! the Aussie Open is cheaper?!...well, atleast that's in a foreign country, it bugs me that Montreal is cheaper though (well, they claim that they sell out really quickly so there must be a lot of suckers in Canada--I'm one of em)

I think Sunday has some free tickets because they aren't expecting that many people to come on a Sunday.

Sunday is Family Day..I don't think there is a reason..they just chose Sunday instead of Saturday.

Another sucker right here ..but there isn't any other option..if you want to watch women's tennis.

Eastbourne is around 110 for a weeks pass to Centre Court, Birmingham...hmm, don't remember, but cheaper than that, I think tickets are something like 10 a day. At Wimbledon ground passes, (which allow you to access all courts except 1 and Centre), cost arond 14 a day, whilst show court tickets range from around 20 - around 80 depending on the day and the court and Roland Garros is cheaper than Wimbledon, but I can't think offhand of what the actual ticket prices are. The Madrid Open is really cheap, I think when I went a couple of years back it cost something like 30 for a weeks pass.

Vivi & Conchita & Patricia & Paola 2004 Olympic Silver & Bronze medalists, Vivi & Anabel 2008 Olympic Silver medalists - congratulations!
