Yes, I'll be going on Friday and I can't wait!!!

Last year I sat one row behind Leo Clijsters (who smelled really bad by the way)
And then I was three rows behind Stephano Capriati.

And then halfway through the Amelie/Kim match, Martina Hingis came out and sat in the same row as Stephano, she waved and smiled at me, and needless to say I nearly had a heart attack.

I'm hoping for the same luck this year, I have the same seats, I hope I have the same people, and they didn't move the players box area or something.

How did you get seats behind the player's box? Was that just luck or you requested those seats?

im going too. tickets were way more expensive this year than last year. that is to say the USTA discount wasnt as good.
you can request to sit in the section as the players box, granted you know what section it is. i tried for this year but youd have to be like way far back so it wasnt worth it.
im going wednesday and friday nights. and perhaps saturday if my friend gives me his seat again this year.

Last year I did have a seat across from the camera, so I taped the match so I could watch myself when I got home

I'll be there most night sessions and maybe Saturday.

If one was to be in the vicinitiy of Staples Center on Tuesday at about 11:30, one might see the players driving Porches around one of the parking lots....if one happened to be in the neighborhood coincidently....
