Who's going?

Considering this is the first time in years that the Proximus Diamond Games are not held at the same time as the ABN/AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam, I might pay this tournament a visit for the first time ever Tickets are way too expensive though But it would be fun to go to the qualifying event

Who of you is going?

I'm going 4 Kim's first match !!!
So on Feb. 15th

And if Kim's number one at that moment, everybody in the crowd will be given a bottle of champagne.
That's what Bob Verbeeck promised, at least ... lol

I thought about going as well. But I'll be travelling from Dublin, so flight + hotel + the expensive tickets = expensive weekend. Still considering though

Does anyone who has already been there know if you can watch practice sessions of the top players during qualifying?

On Court 1?

Is there even a Court 2?

During the tournament you can watch the players practice on center or court 1 if you enter early enough before the sessions start. But the official practice courts are 10km further so the change of seeing a top player practice during the quallies (starts at 11am I think) is small to non-existent.

OK Thank you

But I think the same goes for Hasselt, where I saw some players (Clijsters, Farina Elia et al) practise during qualies.

Come to think of it, it's actually about the same price.

But Rosmalen doesn't offer such a good field, though it is ATP + WTA.
