Re: The Sofa: for off topic chat.
I wish I was going to Auckland women's rather than men's now. The field actually looks more appealing to me than the men's which I was hoping would be more interesting. It's only my third time seeing a pro tourney so it'll still be cool, but besides Benoit Paire there's no player going to men's Auckland I'd be like "Oh I'll die if I don't see them live", and it doesn't even look like Almagro or Giraldo (another couple of players it would be cool to see live there) are returning.
I'll have fun no matter what, but I think in this instance I made the wrong decision
. Oh well.
