I can tell you it's surely a lot better than from the top of Ashe stadium, lol.

Kidding aside, it's not bad at all. Here is video shot from my regular seat, shot with a 12X point and shoot:

The view is fine from there. It's a purple court, so the ball is easily visible. You're not going to see a "TV view", obviously, with close ups of the faces, but if you have a good camera, you can still get some decent photos.

I need to do that someday. But I can't ever seem to tear myself away from the tennis, lol.

I forgot to mention--IF you are in Coconut Grove, the past several years, they have had a player function there on Thursday night of the first week. I've always been at the tournament, and never back early enough to go, but supposedly, somewhere in the Grove at Cocowalk some players show up for a promotional thing and are avalaiable for photos/autographs. I'm pretty sure Djokovic was there one year. Tamira Paszek was there a few years ago. They always put pictures of it on the WTA site and in the tournament's daily match schedule the day after.
