How did you get the tickets ??? I ve tried to purchase online but it didn't work for me !

I NEED to see her play live once in my life.
My biggest is not to be 10years older, if I had been nearly 30 (so with money and a car) while she was still playing, I would have went to the FO every year !

Just looked at their website, it seems that the online ticket sale is closed. But if you're really interested it could be an idea to phone them to ask if there are still tickets available. I don't know how good your spoken German is, but you surely would find someone with whom you can talk in English, perhaps even French. Or I could phone them if you wish (but tomorrow it's a holiday here, so I possibly won't reach somebody there earlier than on Friday).

Exactly what Seleção82 said. I called them at +49 (0)5201-8180. The lady spoke to me in English, and told me they cant mail me the tickets now, thats why the online thing is not working now.
But she told me they can reserve a ticket for me, and I can pick it at the entrance of the stadium. I was asked for my credit card number. So if you really want to see her in Halle, just call them, give them your details and credit card number, and they will reserve a ticket for you.

However, thats not how I got my ticket. I just checked a local eventim.de office and they had some tickets available. Again, they are not selling them online anymore, but if you want, I can go to the office on Friday and get one for you. So call them, and if it doesnt work out, let me know!

Ditto! But in my case, I would've had to live in Europe as well

Sure hope that some day Steffi does play in India...I had read somewhere that AITA was planning of holding some matches across different cities in India, and Andre, Steffi, Pete and some others were to participate, but nothing seems to have materialised.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

You guys are too nice with me
Actually I've tried about 2months ago to have tickets for the event, as it didn't worked I thougt tickets weren't available from France, so I basically gave up the idea to go there to see her in Halle.
Unfortunately, I ve planned other things to do on that day
But thank you for offering me your help I am mad at me, I should have asked before

I REALLY DO wish she will come back next year in Paris, for the Longines thing, and this time I'll be there ! Or if she comes back playing in Germany (near Metz).

I doubt it. But I'll look around and will let you know if I find something.

Re: Steffi Graf Admiration Thread Vol 2

Does anybody wish she would play with a wilson racquet when we see her do these exhibitions or hits? I know she has to play with heaed since there must be endorsement deals and what not, but it just seems a bit odd seeing her play with anything other than wilson ie the head racquet-maybe even her old dunlop lol. Even still ,seeing her play now, at anytime, even if it was with a frying pan, is still a treat

Me too, I still play with the Black Wilson she retired with, but no doubt she will play with the Head racket. The oversized racket just doesn't like as nice as her Wilson rackets, all three of them, the blue white, the blue and the black.
