Then I'll be there from tuesday! Are quallies actually at Flushing meadows or somewhere else?

I know wimby quallies are else where, thought maybe it's the same for USO.

The same place, there are also courts in the park where lower ranked players sometimes train. Last year I saw there Jim Carey LOL

lol, awesome, thanks. I will be staying in Queens alone, a friend recently sent me an email saying I should be careful But I fugured with there being an international event nearby, security will be at it's highest..... Maybe my friend was being a bit over cautious as I'd heard Queens is a nice area.

PS. Thanks for your help BTW. It's nice to get your advice as you too are an international US Open visitor so you'll know my perspective

I think Queens is a very safe place. Besides during the USO the security is very tight (maybe even too tight) and there is a lot of policemen everywhere. I'll give you some tips before the tournament

Hey thanks. I would appreciate the advice. I also figured the security would be tight during the event. I'm just 2 miles from USO so I would assume that police are patroling around there most of the time....that puts my mind at ease a lot.

I stayed 2 times in Newark ( New Jersey) and I'm still alive I think it's less safe in my town late in the evening than in NY, I was with my brother in Main Street at midnight with my camera on my shoulder and nobody even bothered plus I could carry my mobile for everyone to see and nobody took it away from me...So it's pretty safe to me 2 miles from Flushing sounds great, never stayed that close, it's superb 'cause you can stay late every day and you can be on courts pretty early too. I missed a few Lena's trainings 'cause I never could make it to be there by 11.00 am...

I'm too upset after yesterday's loss of my fave volleyball player to be happy for Eleni I can't forget how hard she cried after the final, I've never seen her so shattered and my heart is heavy as stone...

Lena is going up slowly but stable. Keep up with the good work girl.
