hellas719 at the US Open 2011! MD Day 1 Added!

I plan on seeing all my faves in the Q draw, which are Georgatou, Gallovits-Hall, Koryttseva, Flipkens, Krajicek, Kostova, Marosi, Chakhnashvili, and any American girls.

And I’ll also make sure to watch other players that I really want to see, which includes promising young players like Robson, Garcia, Mladenovic, Larcher de Brito, Babos, the Pliskova twins, Kolar, Barty, etc., and also girls who used to be ranked much higher like Groenefeld, Wozniak, Kremer, Domachowska, Malek, etc.

I’ll do reports and photos, but the photos will have to wait until after the US Open since I’ll be busy

Any requests? I‘ll try my best!


PS-And I promise my photos will be much better than last time. I got a better camera now

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: hellas719 at the US Open 2011!

I'm planning on going to at least 2 days of qualies. It all depends on work though. I'd love to go for more than that but we'll see

The weather is supposed to be fine all week so it won't be like last year's qualies where I went 3 days and I was rained out for 2 of them and I barely saw any tennis until the 3rd day


And I'll be at the main draw too, but I'm not sure which day . So far I have tickets for the first night session but I might have to give them up

Last year I went twice during the MD and had tickets for the Friday womens SFs and couldn't make it so I had to sell them and they were in the first few rows

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari

Re: hellas719 at the US Open 2011!

Going to the USO for the first time this year. Any advice for going to qualifying? I'll be there Friday, which should be the last day of qualifying. Can I expect to see some of the main draw players practicing, or not really?

Re: hellas719 at the US Open 2011!

TBH, I've never gone early to qualies but finally this year I will get there early

But I've heard that they give you a sheet when you get there of what times and courts the players will be practicing on. I've heard that people have seen many players on Armstrong and Grandstand, like Djokovic, Ivanovic, Jankovic, Nadal, etc.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Re: hellas719 at the US Open 2011!

Michelle will probably be horrible considering she hasn't played in 2 months
If you can take a peak at MJK and Kostova, please.

Have fun!

Guys, I already said I will try my best to see Kostova, she is a fave of mine too

I will try for Koehler and Evtimova but I'm not 100% sure

Re: hellas719 at the US Open 2011!

Check out Ash Barty in qualies, fairly daunting task ahead but will be interesting how she handles the occasion.

Have fun

Re: hellas719 at the US Open 2011!

Okay so I have a problem
Some relatives from Greece came and I had no idea that they were coming so now I have them staying at my house so I will try my best this week to ditch them as much as possible to go to the qualies

I'm 99% sure that I'm going tomorrow. Matches I'm planning on watching:

WTA:
-Georgatou vs. Kolar (Full match, this is the one I want to see most)
-Boserup vs. Kostova (I like both so it's a 2 for 1 )
-Brengle vs. Malek
-Beygelzimer vs. Flipkens
-Chakhnashvili vs. Lu
-E.Bogdan vs. Knapp
-U.Radwanska vs. Groenefeld
-Voskoboeva vs. Alvarez-Teran
-Voracova vs. Krunic
-Kulikova vs. Garcia
-Albanese vs. Buzarnescu
-Jones vs. Glatch
-Kr.Pliskova vs. Garcia-Vidagany

ATP:
-Zopp vs. Bubka (Just to see if Vika is there )
-Niland vs. Cervenak
-Ryderstedt vs. Dabul
-Bozoljac vs. Witten
-Delic vs. Donskoy
-Dancevic vs. Clement

*I'll also try and see whatever MD players are practicing and apparently there will be some autograph sessions this year so I'll try to go to them . I won't be there the whole day so I don't know how long I'm staying for, but the matches I listed are the ones I want to see

*Obviously that is 13 WTA matches and 6 ATP so I won't watch them all, since it won't be possible to watch so many matches, and I don't know when I'm going/leaving, and I'm not watching anything else during Eirini's match

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari

I don't think she is playing until Wednesday, but I will try my best to see her since I know that she is a future star

And I'll try, and Ula vs. ALG was one of the matches I wanted to see most when the draw came out, but now I see that they'll play around the same time as Eirini . But I'll definitely try to catch some of it as Georgatou will probably lose easily (unless Kolar chokes again )

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
