To go or not to go?

I'm thinking about going this year but I'm cautious because I don't know how many of my faves to expect here as this event takes place the week after the Olympics end. Then again, it's a combined event so I'll definitely get my money's worth. I also plan to go for the whole week so I'll need to decide soon so that I can buy my tickets, reserve a hotel room, etc. Any thoughts?

Also, when can I expect the entry list to be out?

Re: To go or not to go?

Go! I've gone the last 2 years, as well as in 2007, and it's amazing! I volunteered last year and hope to snag an internship this year. The atmosphere is great, you get your money's worth for sure.

You should go.

Most players will skip/tank Canada so Cincinnati will become the only warm-up tournament for the US Open. Everyone will be there.

Re: To go or not to go?

To those who have gone before: What is the likelihood of getting autographs or personal pictures? This is my first professional tournament lol.

Re: To go or not to go?

Edinboro, I went to this tournament 3 years ago in 2009 and I got plenty of autographs. One of my friends came here last year and got some pictures with top players so it's pretty easy. A lot just walk around the grounds But I would think it would be easier to get pictures with the lower ranked ones since Security won't be with them.

Re: To go or not to go?

I got a ton of autographs when I went as a fan in 2010 and encountered tons of players last year as a volunteer. I'm volunteering again and I'm looking forward to it!

Re: To go or not to go?

Thanks for all the advice guys! I'll definitely go if Serena plays. I can't buy tickets until the night before though because I have to find out when she's playing and if it's going to rain or not. I'm not driving up to Cincy just to have all the matches rained out on me,
