Who Is Going?

I am still waiting for a confirmation sometime this week from my boss to take a week off during the Canadian Open.

If I don't I will cry


"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin

I will be there for both qualy days and the monday and tuesday and quite POSSIBLY the wednesday depending on whether I have enough money left!

The practice courts are just outside the regular facility, and you can see the players at a really up close view! I didn't realize they had these courts until last year where I got lost while walking to the mens tournament lol!

my friends and I are going for sure for the qualies and the first day or two but I don't think we can afford more that on a student budged Hopefully, I'll get to see the top players practice though

pratice courts are a shy for a big tournament like toronto, you can see nothing except low player ranking across a fence. high ranking player pratice on a court not available to the public!

yay! thanks soo much Boiled!!!!

now... someone tell me where the practise courts are.. there not courts 1 or 2 i assume..... i think they're the courts outside of the grounds.. that are blocked off by big green things so we cant see any practise!

anyone kno? i should.. since i've been before.. but i forget easily..

you can not see them off court only if the are walking around the courts. You will have more chance in the stand on smaller court, player often watch matchs from their friends. Players from France are usually always at game where french players play.

Toronto is the opposite of montreal. Just too bad montreal dont have a wta event every year. Maybe in 5-6 years... if we are lucky.
