I've been to La Costa too, but since going to Indian Wells, I havent' been back. I'm going for the whole two weeks. I love going to the women's qualies and being there from the very first day. I like seeing all the obscure players you never get to see on T.V. but whose names we see in the draws.
The La Costa tournament is very intimate, but I see more players at Indian Wells and I get to see the men too.
